Preservation Hall of Jazz
Enjoy admission for two to Preservation Hall, the French Quarter’s internationally recognized home of Traditional New Orleans Jazz and headquarters of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. As guests of Preservation Hall, you’ll be entitled to “skip-the-line” status. Simply check in at the door and avoid the long line. This iconic American institution was established in 1961 with the intention of preserving this uniquely American art form and providing some of its earliest practitioners the opportunity to earn a living performing the music they had pioneered and kept alive for so many years. Preservation Hall’s evening performances are recognized as some of the world’s last “pure musical experiences,” presenting authentic, traditional New Orleans jazz, played by the city’s finest. Experience the living legends that won Preservation Hall the Zagat award for 'Best Appeal' for 2009 New Orleans Nightlife. There is no bar service, air-conditioning, or other modern updates, Preservation Hall is a truly unique experience for kids and adults alike. In the words of Louis Armstrong: “Preservation Hall, now that’s where you’ll find all the greats”.

Commander's Palace Restaurant
Enjoy a jazz brunch or 3-course dinner with wine pairing for two, including tax and gratuity. Every Saturday and Sunday, the jazz brunch features a Cajun and Creole-inspired menu with both traditional and unique breakfast items. As you bite into one of their Creole poached egg dishes or Bananas Foster Pancakes and take a sip of your Ramos Gin Fizz or Bloody Mary, live jazz musicians fill the room with “good, happy jazz”. If you feel like dancing, join the “second line” that often forms behind the band, a passionate and joyful New Orleans tradition! Or you can choose the 3-course dinner with wine pairing any night of the week, which starts with their World Famous Turtle Soup and ends with Creole Bread Pudding Souffle.

This beloved Garden District restaurant is New Orleans at its finest. Owner Ti Martin, daughter of Ella Brennan of the famous New Orleans restaurateur family, carries on the tradition and spirit that have given Commander’s Palace its magic and charm since 1880.
