Located in the center of Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square, the New Orleans has long been a centerpiece in Seattle’s music scene. It is housed in the Lombardy Building, the first building erected after Seattle’s Great Fire of 1889.
The New Orleans features live music nightly, with regular jazz groups performing on weeknights, usually with a Dixieland or New Orleans flavor. Wednesdays features the Legacy Quartet, led by Seattle’s eminent drummer, music educator and organizer, Clarence Acox. Music on the weekends leans heavily toward blues, zydeco and Dixieland, and the tables are more likely to be cleared away for dancing space. The New Orleans also offers a genuine Southern Creole-style menu and full bar to compliment the proceedings onstage.
