The Maple Leaf isn’t a bar you’re going to randomly stumble upon, but if you’re looking for the best place to check out some local brass bands, make the trip to the Carrollton neighborhood in Uptown. This place hosts shows nightly, which usually go until 4am at least, and if you want to dance with a bunch of locals and Tulane alumni trying to relive their college years, this is the place to go. Try to come on Tuesday night, when Rebirth Brass Band, which is one of the best in the city, has a weekly show.

Go to the Sazerac Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel to start the night with a cocktail, or whenever you need a break from nearby Bourbon Street.
