10. Apple Barrel

This cozy spot right outside the Quarter on Frenchmen Street is the perfect place to start a day of music and drinks in the city. The music rarely stops at the Apple Barrel, and the lineup features established acts as well as newcomers looking to break into the city’s jazz scene. The acoustics in this tiny bar are said to be so good that many artists chose to record live albums during their sets.
