Lots of great nights begin and end at Basin Street Lounge. As this iconic Jazz and Blues venue prepares to celebrate 50 years, it’s hard to imagine an establishment lasting so long.
There are some features that you probably aren’t accustomed to these days, like the heavy waft of cigar smoke in the air, but it just lends to the old-school feel. Enjoy live music every night, with no cover on weeknights and just $5 admission on the weekends. You can also head downstairs to enjoy upbeat music from different DJs Tuesday through Saturday at the Bayou Room. Basin Street Lounge also boasts an impressive whiskey selection and cigars to purchase an enjoy during the show. Plus, since you’re adjacent to the legendary Two-Nineteen Restaurant, enjoying leisurely tapas or a full Creole meal is as easy as heading next door.
The live music at Basin Street Lounge begins at 9 p.m. nightly. Visit the website for the lineup of this month’s performers.
