Our preferred night destination whenever we are in New Orleans. Just a short walk from the Fr.Quarter, you'll find the best music selection in town. Many bars to wander in and out of - enjoy the music inside and outside on the street. Daytime - you may want to check out the new Crescent Park - long stretch of Mississippi... More

a funky, eclectic area of New Orleans....some parts are a bit shabby, but others are quite nice.....bars, restaurants, clubs, music, just outside the Quarter and to the French Market.

By all means if you're in town on any Monday, seeing her is the highlight of all my visits to New Orleans.

The Marigny has a colorful history. Look it up. It's a great place for walking, biking, eating and drinking. Here you will find quiet streets, cool restaurants and coffee shops and interesting shops. Clothing, antiques, art... It's all here. Great bars, too, mostly devoid of the douchebags and idiots that you'll find in the French Quarter.

This is the slightly grittier little brother of the French Quarter, containing Frenchmen Street and several little restaurants, coffee houses, and residences in colorful buildings. It's getting better all the time, as there are now few empty homes, the new park on the river, and the general improvement to New Orleans since Katrina. I would live there if I could... More

Most people who visit go to the French Quarter, which is fine, but you won't find locals there. The locals and smart tourists go to Frenchmen Street where you will find the best nightspots all in a row with local music and good food. You can walk the streets of the Faubourg Marigny and check out the eclectic old homes... More

These neighbourhoods are a treasure trove of quaint, opulent and beautiful architecture - a mixture of mission, Cajun/creole cottages, plantation style homes. Each has it's own unique characteristics, colours, gardens. They range in size from those that seem impossibly small to two storey mansions. Some are in wonderful repair, some renovated post Katrina and other hurricanes while others stand in... More

From all the construction going on and discussions with locals, the area is undergoing gentrification. Some nice places to eat. Great architecture of shotgun style house with gingerbread molding.

We stayed at a Bed and breakfast called the Lions Inn on Chartres Street. It Is walking distance from the French Quarter and a quaint old house with a wonderful host and beautiful tropical back yard. The neighborhood is nice with local café and restaurants.
