Back in the days when the future of traditional New Orleans jazz seemed dim, this is the place that kept the music alive. Today, over 40 years later, the hall is still going strong. On any given night it's filled to capacity with people eager to hear authentic New Orleans jazz, played by both veteran and younger musicians. There's no bar or climate control, and a line usually forms outside about a half-hour before.
