This is a really cool neighborhood with great local restaurants tucked away throughout. It's great for a stroll and right next to the French Quarter.

This is a very interesting historic neighborhood with great examples of classic New Orleans style houses including the shotgun shack. Next to the French quarter but much quieter, it's a great place to take a tour of or just wander around for a while.

Just on the outscape of the French Quarter. Great new Jazz, good restaurants on Frenchman Street, interesting other shops and it is just off the last stop on the street car.

The Marigny is a beautiful - if a bit dingy - neighborhood that is just a short walk from the French Quarter. The architecture of the houses is worth the trip. They aren't mansions, but they're beautiful, and many are being renovated in great ways. Base your visit around the St Roch market, which has great food and drink at... More

This is the neighborhood where things are happening. The Marigny starts at wonderful Esplanade Ave. and runs downriver to around Franklin St. It contains a myriad collection of New Orleans Creole architecture currently in every stage of renovation. Lots of creole cottages and double shotguns all painted in the colorful hues of New Orleans. Restaurants, clubs and galleries can be... More

I love this area. It's quite but has that charm you can only find in Louisiana. It's has the beautiful houses and close to the F.Q.

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
