One of New Orleans' Best Kept Secrets. Nestled away just walking distance from the famous St Charles Street Car line is Le Roux a Supper Club and Banquet facility that is available for both public and private affairs. During it's earlier years, The famous Nite Cap, once stood where Le Roux now stands and was one on the spot s to give birth to the New Orleans Funk we hear and admire today. "If these wall could talk" you could hear many famous and infamous artists that have grace the stage at this historic site, explains Kurte Pellerin, it's current owner. " From R&B Superstars Stevie Wonder, the groups the Chi Lites, The Manhattans, to countless other local greats like Deacon John, The Meters, and The Nevilles 1700 Louisiana Ave has alway provided an enviroment for great entertainment"' Pellerin continues. In keeping with the tradition, Le Roux now offers Live Entertainment weekly on Friday nites. Dining is also available during shows and reservations are encouraged, but not necessary. There is also now a Restaurant section upstairscalled Ray's on the Roof @ Le Roux that features lunchtime dining. The menu is traditional Soul Food. The area is quaint and has a spacious outdoor deck adjacent to the dining room.

My husband and I and our 3 friends stayed at the Crescent Palms last Christmas. I can't speak highly enough of the place, especially the staff. Managers Kendall and John were amazingly sweet and helpful. They went out of their way to help us in many occasions - even when we were stranded without a rental car and no more reserved nights on new years eve, they found us a room and a car! The area gets a really bad rep, but we never felt unsafe, and its nice to be away from all the tourists and stay at a place with real character. We took the bus and the tram into town and never had a problem. The room was clean, warm in the chilly winter nights, showers worked perfectly, and there was always plenty of clean linen. The bar was cozy, and Kendall and John would come hang out with us on their break. Very very nice people. We missed them after we left! I will go back to New Orleans, and I will stay at the Palms again! I highly recommend the place: comfortable, great atmosphere, and affordable. By the other reviews that I see on this site, it looks like I'm not the only one who felt that way: when you are treated so well by such lovely people, it shows. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

One late evening out at Frenchmen's on a rainy night-where the music is great and more of the locals hang out-having spent much time wandering the music venues while ignoring our hungry stomachs, we looked to the bartender for a restaurant suggestion. Knowing we weren't that familiar with the area and were walking, he told us of a couple of places which were close. "But, if you don't mind walking a bit there's a place we all go to after work called Coop's Place..." He was right! We'd been to several places during the several visits to New Orleans from the 5 Star to the funky and Coop's served up the best Cajun food we had ever tried. The Jambalaya was so good, we went back the day we flew out just to pick up an order to go for the classic leftovers at home. The cook even came out to thank us for "the compliment" as we had told the server of our takeout plans. The place is not the suit and tie kind of place but it is a place you can sit and take in the ambiance of outer French Quarter. No, you won't find the finest tableware and starched table cloths, but you will find the finest food of the that region. I can't wait to go again!
