The Palm Court Jazz Cafe is housed in
a fully restored early 19th century historic building on Decatur Street in the
French Quarter. Decatur Street is where it is happening these days and the
Palm Court Jazz Cafe is the focal center for live traditional jazz in the French
Nina Buck opened the Palm Court in
1989, to provide an enjoyable and interesting atmosphere where one can
listen to live traditional jazz while dining on fine Creole cuisine. Since its
inception the Palm Court has become a Mecca for jazz greets and their fans.
"Where can we dine and listen to live traditional jazz?" is a question
most asked at the Concierge desks. The Palm Court fulfills this need with
quality food and music in an elegant but relaxed period atmosphere. Our
cuisine has an impeccable New Orleans pedigree and includes recipes
dating back for several generations. This is fine Creole cooking in its most
subtle and authentic form.
The decor and theme of the Jazz Cafe reflects the elegance of old New
Orleans with, high ceilings, a classic mahogany bar, mosaic tiled floor,
Steinway grand piano, ceiling fans, and the Bistro area which is decorated with
a wide selection of compact discs and LP's of famous and not so famous jazz
The musicians appearing at the Palm Court include some of the Legends of
New Orleans Traditional Jazz who continue to play with equal vigor and
enthusiasm in their seventies and eighties. We have a different jazz band
performing every evening, each bringing their interpretation of true New
Orleans style jazz. Records from the GHB family of labels are available and
can be played on request. A magnificent collection of jazz photographs, by
celebrated photographers, grace the old brick walls.
Meet you at the Palm Court!!!
