"Jazz in the Crescent City" Preservation Hall Tip by HokieinNC

Preservation Hall, New Orleans: 18 reviews and 17 photos

While it remains one of the most touristy things to do in the Big Easy, one of the best nights spent in New Orleans is to go out for a good creole dinner, followed by listening to jazz at Preservation Hall, and drinks at Pat O'Brien's.

For food, you can't go wrong. Any bad restaurant would go out of business in New Orleans in a heartbeat.

You might have to wait in line for a while, but Preservation Hall is definitely worth it. The band members are old school jazz musicians who love to play and it shows. The $5 it costs to get in is the best cheap thrill you can get in NO.

Once you've had your jazz fill, go next door to Pat O'Briens for hurricanes or other drinks. A lot of the Bourbon Street bars can be loud and obnoxious. Pat O's is way more low key and has an awesome courtyard area for spending time with friends. Also has a good piano bar.
