Whether it’s with large clubs or small parades, the New Orleans music scene never disappoints the eight million visitors it gets each year. We have compiled a list of the best places to enjoy live music in the music city par excellence.
If you’d like to catch an exclusive live jazz performance at the storied Preservation Hall, consider booking Culture Trip’s four-day New Orleans tour, which includes this must-do activity – and several more – to give you an all-round excellent experience of the Big Easy.
Established in 2000 and located in the historic Fauburg Mariginy, d.b.a. was among the first music venues in New Orleans to become smoke-free. The goal of this venue is to create a healthy environment for you, as well as the staff and musicians. This allows patrons and artists alike to rejoice and connect through a cultural and entertaining space. d.b.a. features local and regional acts nightly, which means everyone is welcome to join the festivities every day.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
