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

It is off the beaten track and what I would call a real 'local joint'. The band, Treme Brass was great! It was interesting in that the singers had no microphones and the singers would walk around the dance floor to sing their songs. It...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!

Went on Wednesday night as suggested and it was closed down. There was yellow tape surrounding the building. Not sure what is going. Call before going.

Luckily, we arrived in New Orleans on a Wednesday, which meant that the Tremé Brass Band was playing at the Candlelight Lounge. I was in town with my 18yo son, who's been playing jazz since middle school, so I could think of no better welcome...More

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere

streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered

their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods
