#2481 - Buffa's, New Orleans - 3/22/2014

Buffa's is a neighborhood dive in front, but better known for the backroom, accessed from a narrow doorway, hosting jazz and mostly locals of the widest variety of ages. The white stucco exterior with oval windows look like some touristy submarine themed attraction, but inside it is classic mid-century roadhouse. They used to have music six nights a week and weekly open mike comedy, but I believe the entertainment schedule has been cut down in some noise disputes with some of the neighbors in their residential neighborhood. Buffa's has been here since 1939 and had live music since at least the mid-1980s, but apparently before the current owners purchased it in 2010 the music was confined primarily to weekends. "Some Like It Hot" at 10:30 a.m. Sundays is particularly popular.

They are open 24 hours and serve a mix of standard tavern food and local standards (crawfish, jambalaya, red beans and rice, shrimp and grits, etc.)

Buffa's is currently trying to raise money for legal fees and sound-proofing improvements.
