Although the majority of the 12th Ward was flooded after Hurricane Katrina, it has been given new life by several cultural additions. The Fine Arts Theater has been newly restored, but still maintains its historic charm. Currently, the venue features the Children’s Dinner Theater once a month and each Sunday it features the Jazz and Gospel Brunch.
If your thirst for performance still isn’t satisfied, check out historic music venue Tipitina’s. The venue began as a neighborhood “juke joint” in 1977 and is dedicated to performer, composer, and pianist Henry Roeland Byrd (a.k.a. Professor Longhair).
