Ruby’s Roadhouse

Hours may not be accurate

New Orleans

Don't judge a book by its cover. Ruby's might look like an old southern blues joint, what with its quintessential tin roof and ramshackle roadhouse decor, but it showcases both country and city. Just north of Lake Pontchartrain, a trip here will afford you NOLA-style brass and funk, as well as Cajun music born on the bayou. The building is over 100 years old, and has been known as a popular venue for African-American performers since the 1930's.
