Preservation Hall

726 St. Peter Street

Historical club for authentic New Orleans jazz



Word to the wise: To give you an idea of how no-frills this place is, there is no bar (you can bring your own drinks), no food, no bathroom, no chairs, and it's cash only.

Talk of the town: The epitome of a 'cool cat', the resident pet can sleep through the most belting jazz sets.

Preservation Hall was founded in 1961 as a sanctuary for New Orleans-style Dixieland jazz. It is less a club, more a small ramshackle village hall in which guests watch musicians play a fairly short set (45 minutes for USD 15) of Dixieland numbers in an authentic - or at least authentically rustic - setting.

Standing out from the walls' patina are the records and pictures of long-dead jazz greats. It's an interesting experience for jazz aficionados and the truly curious, but those with less dedication to the cause may find a visit to Frenchmen's jazz clubs more comfortable.
