You could mistake Kermit’s for any neighborhood corner store selling fried catfish or chicken, but this is one of the best bars to see some excellent live music. This place is literally always a party—owned by a New Orleans jazz legend, it’s where you’ll find some of the city’s top musicians playing a solo piano set and big brass bands doing their thing on Sunday. The drinks are dive bar quality, but you’re here for the music and to eat some chargrilled oysters, hot sausage, or gumbo, possibly cooked by Kermit himself. The outside colorful mural pays homage to the former owner, the late Ernie K-Doe, another New Orleans legend.
