We know we can’t be everywhere, every day. But we sure try! For instance, you may have seen Ticketfly banners hanging from balconies on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras. You may have even seen our own Ellis Ranko, New Orleans native/Sales Guy extraordinaire, buzzing around with beads and brews on Fat Tuesday.
But don’t fret if you missed our presence during the festivities cause T’Fly and NOLA have a thing going on! The ‘Fly crew is excited to announce that we are now working with some of the best venues on the Bayou.
Often touted the music lover’s mecca, Preservation Hall was founded in 1961 to protect the honor of New Orleans Jazz which had lost popularity to modern jazz and rock ‘n’ roll. According to a fan on Yelp, “This is the only venue in New Orleans where music wasn’t blasted at us from speakers…there are no amps, mics, or ringing in the ears, just pure and simple jazz.”
You know those posh, fancy clubs in NYC and Vegas? Well that’s the vibe of The Metropolitan. What makes it even swankier is they also have live music shows. They hosted the Bacchus Bash 2012 the ultimate day party, that went into the wee hours of the night. We’re not complaining, we like their style!
In the oldest and most famous neighborhood in New Orleans, known as the Vieux Carre or French Quarter, Jax Brewery Bistro Bar is one to keep on your radar. The venue offers a nice mix with a laid-back bar downstairs and a club atmosphere upstairs. Take your drinks outside on the patio and enjoy the beautiful view of the Mississippi River. Oh, here’s a bit of interesting trivia, it used to be the old Ripley Believe It Or Not!
You are in for a special treat, when you visit Republic NOLA for a night of dancing or a live show. According to the locals, this is one of the best places to see a concert because it is both comfortable and intimate. Don’t miss their NOLA Funk JazzFest Series coming this spring!
