I definitely recommend this street, in my opinion it's second only to the Third Ward. There are tons of restaurants and shops for daytime outings and when evening comes it develops a vibrant night life. There's a pretty young crowd, especially as the night goes on.

This is a fun area but very busy. More of a younger crowd that's still into the packed bar scene. You'll see all ages and types of people.

Brady Street used to be all about shopping and nightlife, but in 2015, you can do all three. There are many great restaurants in the area, including the delicious Casablanca. Dragonfly, Art Smart's Dart Mart, and Green Fields are among the niche specialty shops offering interesting wares. Many fine bars and nightclubs are in the vicinity, too. Try the area... More

Old Italian neighborhood with some ethnic stores and restaurants. There are some interesting shops and bars, as well as a neat vibe. Good to stroll along and absorb the atmosphere.
