"There is... a house... in New Orleans... they call the Funky Butt...."

Next time you're in New Orleans, be sure to check out a little joint called the Funky Butt



"Reminiscent of a by-gone era when Rampart Street was the street for music and the area was filled with swingin' joints and elegant bordellos, the Funky Butt is an off-the-beaten-path jazz and blues club, only three blocks and a world apart from the flash and hustle of Bourbon Street.

"Named after the original turn-of-the-century hall where the first man of jazz, Buddy "King" Bolden, held court and led the band, Funky Butt serves up hot music and creole cooking in an atmosphere that is swanky, intimate, laid-back and has been compared to the great music clubs of the 20's and 30's."
