A Video of Blue Nile New Orleans
Blue Nile New Orleans, Guide & Review
Blue Nile is famous as the original music club that gave birth to the music culture on Frenchmen Street. One of the longest-standing music clubs on the Frenchmen strip (in its former incarnation as the Dream Palace, it was the first bar on the block to feature live bands), the Blue Nile offers an eclectic listening menu most nights of the week — both in the street-facing showroom and the venue upstairs (which offers a spacious balcony). Recent shows have featured everything from DJ T-Roy’s reggae party to the Soul Rebels Brass Band to the Washboard Chaz Blues Trio. Check out the upstairs, where late-night DJ parties go down with a balcony view of Frenchmen Street.
Classy blue and gold decoration sets the atmosphere for this music club staged in an 1832 building, reportedly the first constructed on Frenchmen Street. The club provides a full bar and live national and international bands perform in upstairs and down. One of the best nightclubs in New Orleans, Blue Nile is a famous live music venue where many renowned artists like Kermit Ruffins, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and Soul Rebels Brass Band regularly perform. The two story club also rents out the party room for special occasions. A must visit in New Orleans if you want to catch some great live performances.
