Nightlife in New Orleans is without a doubt centred around Bourbon Street, where you'll find bars and clubs packed one after the next, each playing outstanding live music. From rhythm and blues to jazz, zydeco to rock and roll, you'll find live music all night long. After dark, the street becomes a pedestrian-only thoroughfare. Grab a frozen hurricane and hit the street to see street musicians and performance artists entertain everyone.

Some of the more popular clubs include Tropical Isle's Bayou Club and Krazy Korner. Off the beaten track, hit up Mulate's for great live zydeco acts and outstanding eats.
