Music!

Great music, great bars. More authentic than Bourbon Street. Home of the post-college and young professional, but still partying, crowd.

this neigborhood is just below (downriver) the french quarter after crossing esplanade ave. it is the spot to go to for truly local music. there are several excellent joints, both newish and old, that offer a steady diet and mix of the music we locals go for. scattered throughout the music venues are several very casual eating establishments as well....

This is where we stayed. A reasonable walk to so many attractions, nightlife and restaurants. It's nice to be off the beaten track of Bourbon Street...the walk did us good too since we ate and drank soooo much.

The Marigny has changed since I first stumbled on it back in 1992, but it still maintains a unique charm that cannot be tainted but the over-commercialism of the French Quarter.

If you like to experience the life as a local, this is the area to stay. Rent a shotgun house and enjoy NOLA like you leave there. Enjoy the little cafes and restaurants and get lost among their streets.

We rented a House thru Air BNB, and really enjoyed being in this neighborhood. Lot's of places to walk to, beautiful homes, and near the Quarter. Plus Frenchman Street Clubs and Music.

It's still a little bit funky but it's got a lot of nightlife, it's a neighborhood in flux and there's Frenchmen Street...THE reason to go to the Marigny ...and of course The Spotted Cat! Oh and it's a close walk to Bourbon Street and The French Quarter if you want to play tourist!
