New Orleans Night Life

Nightlife reflects rich history

Think music and New Orleans and the first name that typically comes to mind is jazz legend Louis Armstrong. But a night out in New Orleans will break down any preconceived idea about what constitutes local music. Its diverse history has created a quilt of musical styles that have been influenced from musical styles from Africa, Europe, and Latin America. One component of the city's musical heritage is rhythm and blues, which helped set the stage for rock 'n roll. Other sounds popular here include Zydeco, funk, rap, blues, and rock. The city's musical heritage is celebrated nightly at clubs and cafes, which feature great local and national talent. Right alongside festivals, music, and history, food has always been a big favorite here. You'll find a healthy mix of Creole, Italian, Native American, Cajun, and Cuban traditions, for example. Popular places to eat include Petunia's, Emeril's Delmonico New Orleans, Commander's Palace, Mr. B's Bistro, and K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen. Some of the unique foods served here include beignets, which are fried pastries that come in a square, boiled crawfish, jambalaya, and gumbo. Locals also have a passion for professional sports. New Orleans is home to the NFL's Saints and NBA's Hornets. NCAA football makes a big stop here every year when the Sugar Bowl takes place at the Louisiana Superdome, home of the Saints. If history, culture, great food, and legendary entertainment are on your list of things to experience, come on down to New Orleans.
