Rock music lovers are most certainly familiar with Tipitina's, named after the Professor Longhair song. What started out as a spot for a few friends to enjoy live music together back in the 70s has now become a true powerhouse in the local & national music scene. In addition to that, Tipitina's, or Tips as many refer to it, continuously gives back to the music community with their Tipitina's Foundation.
This is a venue steeped in music history and you can tell. Just take a glimpse at all the old music posters hanging up and you're certain to see at least one of your favorite bands, if not many.
For those with kids, Tips has a workshop on Sundays (not every Sunday so check their schedule) where they bring in musicians and allow kids with instruments to 'jam' along with the musicians on stage. This can be both local or national artists and it's so neat to see.
