Snug Harbor (jazz club)

Snug Harbor is a popular jazz club, bar, and restaurant on Frenchmen Street in the Faubourg Marigny section of New Orleans, Louisiana.

It has been described as "the classiest jazz club in New Orleans" by The New York Times and as a "musical landmark" by Rolling Stone. It features live performances by both noted local and touring national jazz performers. Regulars include Charmaine Neville, Ellis Marsalis, and Irvin Mayfield.

The club was started by Glenn Menish and later sold to George Brumat. Brumat owned the club until 2007, when he died of an apparent heart attack at the age of 63. While the club was not flooded, Hurricane Katrina forced a temporary closure, which was noted as a significant blow to the jazz heritage of New Orleans. The club reopened October 14, 2005. As of 2014, Snug Harbor remains a premier venue in the regional jazz scene.
