Great place and great show. Very authentic. Good level musicians: the Tremé brass band is really something! Bartender Gladys is simply super: she really makes the people feel at home and won't let you go until you get into the dance floor. Worth the trip....More

The Candlelight Lounge has re-opened in full effect and has live music on Sunday's also. The Key Sound (a mixture of Jazz, R&B, and Blues), is there from 2-6 P.M. and there's a band following that. Come through!

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
to be the very best of New Orleans culture and

their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
