Old Opera House
The "good time" atmosphere here makes you feel right at home—mostly because it is home to many famous New Orleans performing artists. The club is sparse with its bare brick walls and its plain wooden ceiling. The music is what really brings this club to life. Music styles range from blues to jazz and feature local performers. It is open from 5pm , Monday to Friday and 2pm onwards on Saturday and Sunday.
I always make it a point to stop by the Old Opera House to check out the Bonoffs. They are what Bourbon Street music SHOULD BE! Enough with the techo and disco music. Nawlins is not about that but about good Cajun, Jazz, Blues and Dixie Land Music. The Bonoffs are GREAT and very entertaining. The bartenders always friendly and make you feel welcome! Keep up the great tradition Opera House!
Just got back from a weekend in New Orleans. After we found the Old Opera House we spent most of our time there. The Bonoffs played and we were hooked. Dancing in the street outside as people walked by. Staff was very friendly. It is a must see when you go.
The band that played the two nights I was there was just awesome. They were called the Old No. 7's. Every group that wandered into the place started dancing and enjoying the show. The guitar players are excellent, especially Charlie and he has a lot of style! His lead guitar licks were incredible and he is very entertaining. I agree that there could be more tables but it was also good to have a dance floor. I can't wait to see them again. I plan on being there next summer as well! It was the best show on Bourbon street. Feaux sho!
the only thing I did not like about this place was that they did not have any tables. Other than that the service and atmosphere was great and the music was AWESOME every night!! Well worth stopping into.
The Bonoffs are the Matinee Band at the Old Opera House and are INCREDIBLE!! They play true Cajun Zydeco music, and remind me of a young version of Beausoleil. Also, they are one of the few bands in New Orleans who actually play Professor Longhair tunes!!
We just spent a week there and since our hotel was on Toulouse St. had to stop by every time we walked past to hear the music. If you can listen to these guys and not tap your foot or move to the music you are probably dead.
The band only plays from 2:00pm till 5ish, so be sure not to miss them! They are SO MUCH BETTER than the band that takes over for them in the evening. Hurry to see them before they are discovered and start touring!! They are THAT good!
Blown away! We watched for hours as the large crowds moving up and down Bourbon Street couldn't resist breaking into dance in the middle of the street in front of the Old Opera House as the music got in their ears. The best energy and most fun I have ever experienced while listening to live music. Matt on Drums Rocked. We didn't even bother to travel up and down the street that entire night, we just let it come to us. Great!
The rhythmic zydeco blues of Dwayne Dopsie and the Hellraisers wafted up Toulouse Street as we walked towards the action. Took a seat, and stayed for 2+ sets. Came back the next day, and the next, too. 3 for 1 drinks for happy hour, pretty good right there! The music was intense and electric. The best of all our entertainment (and we went to a lot of places) during our trip.
