Frenchmen Street Tours
Tired of Bourbon Street? Not sure which clubs to try out on Frenchmen? Or just looking for some great live music? We offer two Frenchmen Street walking tours to take you beyond Bourbon Street to the music clubs, and cocktail bars in the live music capital of New Orleans. Frenchmen Street has been featured in many films and shows such HBO's Treme, The Simpsons (Spotted Cat), and the hit movie Girl's Trip (The Maison). Drake also shot a large portion of his video for 'In My Feelings' on Frenchmen Street. We will help you be in the right place at the right time to see or meet local musicians and sample a broad range of musical genres that are alive here in the Big Easy (including Jazz, Funk, Blues, Brass, Zydeco and perhaps some Reggae).
