The Centro Cultural Sampedrano (tel. 504/557-2575, 3 Calle between 3 and 4 Av. NO) downtown frequently holds concerts and dramatic performances, usually for US$3–4 per show. The cultural center also has a small library, stocked with books in Spanish and open to the public.
The newer Teatro José Francisco Saybe (tel. 504/225-5117, Av. Circunvalación near 11 Av. NO) hosts the city’s most fashionable performances, with ticket prices varying widely depending on the event.
