The proprietor and his team provide a locale that is a "Home Away from Home" for Jazz aficionados from around the globe. Whether you want to play or just listen, there is always a warm welcome awaiting you in Fritzel's relaxed atmosphere. So come and share the best traditional Jazz New Orleans has to offer and dance the night away.
Advertised 4 dollar draft. When I got my change the bartender gave herself a 4 dollar tip. When I questioned it her response "that's the way it is" easiest job in the world is taking money from a drunk, but that was my first drink...went on down the street...and got my drunk with better hospitality.
Most people just go to Preservation Hall to hear a bit of jazz then check it off their to-do list. If that's not enough jazz for you, I'd suggest coming here as well! It's smaller and feels like a well-kept secret... plus the jazz is awesome, duh! And their one drink per set minimum is totally reasonable, especially since there's no cover. Oh, and get a seat on the balcony if you can!
