Wanna taste of true New Orleans? The "Nitty Gritty" bar tour is a chance to experience the magic of Black owned bars and juke joints that are off of the beaten path--all legendary, unique, and guaranteed to make for an amazing time! We’ll visit three to five bars, jazz clubs, and landmarks hidden away in the historic Treme neighborhood. We'll meet and mingle over our first round of drinks (which is on me!), while getting in some local fun, neighborhood and bar history, and culture. You'll have a chance to meet bar owners and kick it with some of New Orleans' finest! Transportation is provided from the pick up point and as we go from bar to bar. Guests must arrange their own transportation after our last bar stop.
I’m a world traveler, cultural worker, and storyteller who is absolutely in love with the majestic city of New Orleans! Hospitality and good vibes are a priority. I make sure my guests have the absolute best time on "The Nitty Gritty" tour and experience the delight and richness of history and culture through a local lens. This tour will give you a greater love of the best tucked away Black owned bars and juke joints the Big Easy has to offer.
All guests will receive one drink! (mixed drink or beer). Remember the first round is on me :)
We will meet at a designated place and from there, I will provide transportation as we bar hop.
All bars on the tour will be within the historic Treme (America's oldest African American neighborhood and birthplace of jazz) and 7th Ward neighborhood. We'll visit some of the most highly recommended, underground spots in the area.
