Recommendation by Lemi
Another one of New Orleans pioneering jazz clubs, the Maple Leaf is the city’s longest running club. Brush elbows with regulars at the bar and dance with locals on the packed floor. Tuesday nights are reserved for the Rebirth Brass Band, an iconic local act that’s been together since 1983. Their traditional New Orleans sound won them a Grammy in 2012 for Best Regional Roots Music Album. Maple Leaf is known for its local legends and famous sit-ins. Its most famous instance was when Bruce Springsteen popped in and jammed out. There’s always live music happening here. Whether you’re mingling at the bar, cooling down outside, or heating up the dance floor, Maple Leaf is the place to be any day of the week.
