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!

Tip the Band

Our Virtual Tip Jar!

Show our musicians how much you enjoy watching them on our web cam! Drop a Lincoln or two in our virtual tip jar! We'll see they not only get the tip, but that they know who it's from (unless you tell us not to).

Don't Tell Them Who It's From…

Every Thursday, Friday & Saturday

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.

Thursday at 7PM and 9PM

Friday at 7PM & 9PM

Wabi Sabi Trio


Ray Moore, Ed Wise and Larry Scala
