Description

LA Weekly's Description

Fais Do-Do is a Cajun dance party, as well as a phrase used by mothers to tell their infants to go to sleep. The Mid-City nightclub Fais Do-Do is very much a raging Cajun dance party, and a whole lot more besides, with its large bar and adjoining ballroom hosting a dizzying array of music and theater events. Based in a former bank building that was built in an Art Deco style in 1930, the club is now one of the main centers of nightlife in the Mid-City area once known as the Sugar Hill District. In the past, stellar musicians like John Coltrane, Billy Preston and the late Sam Cooke used to hang out here. More recently, a wide variety of influential rappers (including Scarub and 2Mex), Latin rockers (Quetzal), and world, jazz and blues musicians have made their mark on its stage. A large dance floor gives way to a wooden stage in the corner. A balcony above the bar looks down on the dance floor and toward the stage. The bar serves beer and wine, and the age limit is usually 21 & over. Street parking available.

    Oh man, what a ridiculous spectacle. And I mean that in the best possible way. These folks are funny, talented, ambitious, and extremely silly. We had a blast on Friday and will probably go see them again.
