What you'll do
We'll be heading to Frenchman and Decatur Streets to check out the best jazz clubs in the French Quarter, but we will be starting the night off right - with a mystery shot at an absinthe bar where the ghosts of pirates in times past still walk! Once we've had a chance to introduce ourselves, we'll move on to check out the best music the Quarter has to offer. This is an especially great tour for travelers who are visiting for the first time! I'm a novice dancer, and we can cut a rug together or separately - I'll also give you some background on the history of jazz, the lowdown on different styles of dance that you'll see in New Orleans, and put my colorful city's culture towards dance in a bit more context. This city has such a rich history, and I love sharing old legends and historical facts about this storied place. So come on out - and see how the locals do it! PLEASE NOTE: my normal group size is about 3 people, but I do take requests for larger groups, so please don't hesitate to ask for me to change the limit if you'd like :)
Hi! My name is Cristy and I fell in love with this city the first time I visited - you never know who you'll meet or what you'll see! I'm a DC native who moved here three years ago; I work in IT as a tech support advisor and am very passionate about traveling. I am also a rookie sailor, beginner-level swing dancer and have a love of cultural exchange and learning. One very important part of my life is hosting couch surfers (look it up, it's awesome!), so I have many years of hosting under my belt and enjoy teaching folks from other places about the history and spirit of my lovely city :)
One welcome shot! :)

Where you'll be
Frenchman Street is where all the awesome jazz clubs are - Spotted Cat, BMC, Checkpoint Charlie's, Blue Nile, Maison and others are basically next to each other, and it's where the locals go; I like wandering until we find music we like and rolling with that!
Things to keep in mind
Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 3 guests ages 21 and up can attend. It's nearly impossible to find a club in the Quarter that doesn't ID, so please make sure you are of age and have either a valid driver's license or a passport handy!
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
This experience includes alcohol. Only guests who meet the legal drinking age will be served alcoholic beverages.
It's good form to bring some cash to tip the bands at each venue if we stay for any significant period of time. Drinks/food are up to you!
