Where Local Rock Lives!

What: Restaurant / Bar

Where: 3244 Severn Ave., Metairie, LA
Draw: Great food, great music, local music memorabilia
Next Show: VINTAGE LIVE Unplugged, Wed. Feb 2nd, 8 PM

Today I'm am going to wander out of The French Quarter/ Marigny Triangle and into Metarie. OK, hold up...before you rip me a new one for venturing into suburbia, bear with me would ya? Metarie happens to be home to one of THE coolest places in all of New Orleans musicdom..,The CAFE - Where Local Rock Lives. Owned and operated by none other that Scott Redmond aka Scoot in the Morning...legendary New Orleans Radio personality, The Cafe was designed to cater to local musicians and the folks who love and support locaal music. So much so in fact that they will be open before the big weekends shows, close for the shows then re-open afterward for the after party...these folks are seriously dedicated to local music! They have great service behind the bar (Thank you Tori) great food coming out of the kitchen (Thank you Joe!) and walls covered in instruments, memorabilia and signatures from local bands. So next time you are looking for a great gathering spot to meet friends before a local show, head over to The CAFE for a bite and a beer or two then after the show wraps up, head on back for the best late night meet and greet in NOLA!
