The Red & the Black

This New Orleans-themed bar and concert venue is smaller than the Rock and Roll Hotel but attracts top-notch musicians just the same. The intimate space has a small room upstairs that hosts indie-rock acts and singer-songwriters. Downstairs, you can hang out in the cozy space and order some Louisiana beer or jambalaya. Even if you’re not there to take in a show, it’s a friendly spot to spend an evening.
