If you've done the Quarter, why do it over? This area has great music and a nice atmosphere without the crazies. Highly recommend Three Muses for good music and super drinks

I just hope Frenchmen Street never becomes another Bourbon Street. But if you want to hear great music you have to stop in and see the likes of Linnzi Zaorski and The Tin Men and Charmaine Neville. dba lounge has a beautiful tap beer ensemble and the spotted cat is a hopping place! There's a new restaurant called Dat Dog,... More

I stayed in a little B&B here, and it's a great neighborhood. Far enough from the French quarter so you don't feel or see the tourists, but close enough so it's an easy walk. It's full of charm, the houses are mostly small and close together, with lots of hidden gardens. Very quiet in the mornings, a good walking and... More

lots of bars with live music. We heard wonderful jazz at a place called The Spotted Cat. One drink minimum, but no one came to enforce this. Seating along the side was great. View of the musicians could not have been better.

I was in my home city for Carnival and Mardi Gras. On Monday, March 3, we took some time to drive through the old neighborhoods. Its' wonderful to see all the renovations being done in Marginy. One of my younger cousins purchased a home in the area and has done so much work on it. I'm proud of the younger... More

We stayed in the neighbourhood and it is within walking district of the French Quarter. There are lots of little cafes and Frenchman Street and interesting homes to look at.

The architecture in this area is so charming. It is quiet, yet vibrant. I love walking around here & checking out the beautiful homes & gardens. There are plenty of coffee shops and restaurants. People are friendly.

We stayed here during the week before Mardi Gras and loved the vibe, the architecture, and especially the great music clubs on Frenchman St. Even better was the brass band on a street corner and a large group of folks dancing in the streets!
