618 Frenchmen St.
New Orleans, LA, 70116, United States
TEL: (504) 942-3731

Adjacent to the French Quarter and ensconced in an old Marigny warehouse building, d.b.a. showcases local bands pounding out traditional New Orleans jive like Dixieland, funk, and blues. This is the place to catch some of the Big Easy's best local talent in a wide-open, saloon-like spot that dates from the 1880's and features polished cypress, high ceilings, and terrific acoustics. In addition to its renowned live shows (acts have included Jimmy Buffet, Stevie Wonder, and Louisiana bluesman Clarence Brown), d.b.a. New Orleans sports one of the largest selections of beer and spirits in the city. Bourbon, whiskey, and craft beer connoisseurs especially will be delighted.

Insider Tip:

Free swing lessons are offered at d.b.a on Sundays, so drop in if you feel like learning to groove.
