  • Classic NOLA jazz joint. The concert is always excellent, and even waiting in line is classic French Quarter experience. Shows at 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. Get in line 45 minutes before the show you want to see if you want a seat on a bench, 30 minutes before the show if you don't mind standing. Pay $20 cash on your way in the door. Be nice to your fellow patrons, the staff and the musicians - life is good in The Big Easy!

  • This was a really enjoyable evening listening to a good jazz band. There were no frills, just great music! In the session we attended, there was a trombone, trumpet, clarinet, bass, piano and drums. The trumpet player was their leader and he even sang some and we had audience participation. They were all really good! I happened to be there at a time when the audience were all great participants too, so that was a great experience!! They won't let you take pics during the session, but they let you take some before. So there are none with the actual musicians. You can buy reserved seat tickets online (you just get seated first at the session- so you have an up front bench is really all that means) for like at least double what it costs at the door. Or you can get in line before the show (be there to get in line at least half hour prior) and pay at the door. You have to have cash - they don't take cards! It's $20 at the door. They also sell some small stuff in there - t shirts, little trinkets saying Preservation Hall.

  • Most amazing live jazz venue. As the name states, Preservation Hall preserved the venue and music style resembling that of when the hall first opened in 1961. They let in only about 30 people, tickets can be bought early for reserved seating through their website. For door tickets, come about 40 min early to line up. They do not sell any beverages inside not have any restrooms, this is a place where you strictly listen to music for 45 minutes, but completely worth the wait. Highly recommend checking out when in NOLA.

  • Excellent music! Top notch musicians, very authentic environment the hall has been around since mid 1700s. Be prepared to pay the musicians to play songs you request. It's a fun process to watch.

  • Pride of New Orleans - it's a truly classic and authentic experience! Takes you back in time when life was unhurried and gracious. Great show with talented artists. Fair priced and entertaining. General admission wait is usually 45mins and is well worth it. $20/per person. Cash only. Must see!
