Originally a chess and music club (a couple of chess tables are still on the premises) and later famed as the site of respectively, poetry readings and some of pianist James Booker’s most incendiary recitals, the Maple Leaf is still the place to go if you’re craving funky New Orleans music (brass bands, blues and funk, usually) that sometimes doesn’t cease until sunrise. A patio provides somewhat fresh air.
