An old-school music venue with a bit of a modern flair, Basin Street Lounge is the place to go in Old Town for live jazz and blues. This iconic establishment opened 50 years ago, and still draws world-class talent to perform each night.
For just a $5 cover on weekends (and free on weeknights!), you can sit back and enjoy live music until the wee hours of the morning. Basin Street Lounge is also known for their impressive whiskey and cigar collection. Plus, you’re right next to Two-Nineteen Restaurant for tapas or dinner before or after the show, and you also have the option of heading downstairs to the Bayou Room for DJs and dancing. No wonder Basin Street Lounge has been around for so long. Check out the website for this month’s line-up of performers, but don’t just base your visit on who is performing, as any night is a good night at Basin Street Lounge.
