Preservation Hall, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review

  • A great experience for sure. I'm not a huge jazz fan but I do appreciate it. The show is definitely unique and will give even the non-music lover something to appreciate in the show. Get advance tickets though - it's worth the better seats.

  • Ready to experience jazz like it was yesteryear? Think of a smoky jazz hall, without the smoke. Yes, it is a smallish room; more like 25-30' x 35-40'. A very personal experience. Three rows of open seating on cushions up front at the feet of the musicians; two rows of reserve seating on benches; two rows of open bench seating (each row, two sets of benches, seating 8-10 each row) and standing room only for the rest. Reserve seats run $35-50 and general admission is $15. Show up 45-60 minutes early, if you want a seat. Unamplified jazz is played for approximately 45 minutes. The audience can request songs. . . . if they want to give a little something to Philip the Hat up front - $5 for traditional songs, $10 for 'other' and $20 for 'The Saints'. They did pass on playing a few requests, saying they were not traditional jazz. We'll with going!

  • Great live jazz! Very cozy and intimate space. Get there early if you want to snag a seat (or pay for the VIP reserved tickets). Otherwise you will have to stand.

  • Must-do in NOLA! Came here because saw the Preservation Hall Jazz band pls with Arcade Fire a couple of times and loved them. Seems to be a very authentic jazz experience. They don’t allow photos or filming, so the crowd is usually very into the music and connected with the musicians. Arrive early to avoid long lines, buy tickets in advance online to cut the lines.

  • This was a really neat experience. The musicians were so talented and really brought me back to the 60's. You have to go to a show to truly experience the jazz in Nola!
