The Best Place You've Never Been!

We hear it all the time: “I always pass by that place and think about stopping in.” Does that sound like you? Well, think about it no more.

On the Border of the Quarter since 1939, Buffa’s Bar & Restaurant is the quintessential New Orleans style neighborhood bar. We're open 11AM to 1AM seven days a week!

Buffa’s is committed to paying our musicians fairly while we ramp up to full capacity again. To do this we will be selling full tables instead of individual seats. This insures musicians fair pay and puts no pressure on our guests to have to give up their table due to upcoming reservations.
