If the bright lights of Bourbon Street aren’t to your taste, Frenchmen Street presents a nearby alternative. It’s famous for live music venues—including d.b.a, The Spotted Cat, and Blue Nile—that host nightly shows with both notable jazz names and up-and-coming acts. Late-night spots like Port of Call mean you can start and end your evening right here. On weekends, Art Market showcases items by local talents, making it easy to source a souvenir to take home with you.
