Preservation Hall

Preservation Hall occupies a worn Creole town house that was originally built as a home in the early 19th century, and that had evolved into an art gallery and performance space by 1961. (It was founded by a man of philanthropic bent who fretted that the great, aging New Orleans musicians no longer had a place to play.) It hasn’t changed much since the '60s—audiences cluster on benches or stand along the back wall to hear whomever is playing that night. Among the glories of New Orleans is traditional jazz, which is still very much alive here and never feels as if it belongs in a morgue—or even an intensive care unit. Check the schedule for upcoming acts, but don’t get hung up on specific performers; every night offers something worth stopping by for, and everyone leaves in a better mood than when they arrived.

Hear Live Jazz in Preservation Hall

Notice a line outside a charmingly ramshackle 18th-century building on St. Peter
Street in the French Quarter? It’s a sure sign you’ve reached Preservation Hall, the music non-profit founded in 1961 to “protect, preserve, and perpetuate traditional New Orleans jazz.” Hearing a stirring traditional jazz band concert from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band is an unforgettable and quintessentially New Orleans experience. Seating is limited and most of the venue is standing room only, but there are several shows every night of the week and all ages are welcome.
