Hey Steve, don't give us a bad name!  The girl at the Palm Court door doesn't wear a gun, and it's perfectly safe to walk in that area at night alone (even for a woman).  The only people who get in trouble are those who wander off onto dark streets while wearing Mardi Gras beads.  :-)

 The main problem with walking in the Quarter at night is that you can't see the giant potholes in the streets.

Palm Court is closed Mon. and Tues., and opens for dinner at 7.  Music starts at 8 and goes till 11.  Great music, nice people, friendly locals at the bar.  The Palm Court regulars are the wonderful people that convinced me to move to New Orleans, and I haven't regretted a minute of it!


Steve Barbone writes:

In New Orleans, go to the Palm Cafe in the 1200 block of Decatur Street,where George Buck and his wife hold court. Authentic Trad Jazz, great records for sale and George knows as much about the music as anybody alive today. Plus there is a certain cachet. The doorman usually wears a gun and you might want to take a cab there at night, and or travel in a group.

It is also a restaurant so go early and have dinner. They serve good food at a REASONABLE PRICE. Check for hours, I think they are dark Mon & Tue.
