Frenchmen Street, in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, is a four-block stretch of bars, restaurants, and coffee shops mixed with live-music venues. It's one of the city's hippest neighborhoods and a must-visit for music aficionados. On any given night, the street is home to a wide variety of musical styles, including modern jazz, swinging traditional jazz, Latin American, and rockabilly. Noteworthy clubs include D.B.A., Checkpoint Charlie's, Dragon's Den, the Spotted Cat, and Sweet Lorraine's. Blue Nile and Snug Harbor are also of note. Many venues don't have a cover charge but do require a one-drink minimum. Frenchmen Street is also home to some of the city's best restaurants, with everything from Middle Eastern and pizza to sushi and Thai.
