Tucked in back of the French Quarter and across Esplanade Avenue, is a two-block magical spread of bars featuring live local music. This is where many in-the-know locals spend their Friday and Saturday evenings. The cover charges are free or minimal for some of the best music in the city. The Spotted Cat in the 600 block of Frenchman St., features both Washboard Chaz and on Saturday evenings at 6 p.m. the Panorama Jazz Band. Then there’s the ever-popular John Boutte starting at 8 p.m. at the DBA right across the street. There’s nothing better than to relax after the conference while steeping in local sound. Start your evening early. You can grab bites to eat at several venues on the block including Mona’s (Mideastern cuisine), and the Praline Connection (traditional soul food). The Marigny neighborhood is full of eccentric sights and sounds with a more authentic flavor.
