Buddy Guy's Legends

As Buddy himself has become more of a household name, so has his nightclub become an icon of the local music scene. Although its large size may be less welcoming than many of the city's older clubs, it offers amenities that are a factor of that size: a tasty menu (shrimp Creole, jambalaya, barbecued ribs) and a great collection of blues memorabilia on the walls and bars. The sight lines are good for a large room, although seating can be hard to come by if you don't get there early. Live blues is presented seven nights a week -- generally local acts during the week and national touring acts on Friday and Saturday nights. There's a jam every Monday and an acoustic blues artist on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The talent level is consistent, and the waitstaff is cordial.
