People can get wrapped up in the main attractions of NOLA and forget that people actually live there. We stayed in the Marigny for a long weekend and fell in love with New Orleans a little more. There are some great restaurants like Who Dat Cafe and The Three Muses as well as musical hot spots on Frenchmen Street.

Beautiful neighborhood, filled with colorful shotgun houses, and great restaurants. Very close-knit community. Do yourself a favor, and venture outside the French Quarter to see this neighborhood!

After Frenchmans and before the Bywater, may be the Treme and the Marigny. An area encased in little cafes, corner stores and small bars. A world away from the hustle'n'bustle of New Orleans, this is where we've stayed on our visits these past four times. A place were as a tourist going through the streets mid-morning, everybody's very neighbourly and... More

This area is very pretty and although very near the French Quarter,it seems as if it's a million miles away. It isn't tourist at all, we enjoyed strolling done the streets and listing to the jazz coming from the establishments along Frenchman Street.

a night visit to this section of town an absolute must .. Find a music club and enjoy. try to find the washboard man. He is a regular but moves from club to club. The Spotted Cat is worth a visit. Also they have a night craft market that you can find crafts you cant find elsewhere

You have to go here just to feel it and absorb the atmosphere with the sounds changing step by step as you walk through.

I love the architecture, the coffee shops, the quiet and charm of this neighborhood, and the proximity to the French Quarter. Really enjoyed staying here.

We walked east of the French Quarter and came upon this neighborhood. Great place for hipsters. Aldofo's restaurant was a pleasant find, located above The Apple Barrel on Frenchman street. Great place for people watching and fewer tourists.

This is the place I go to hear music in New Orleans. The French Quarter has its charms, but I love this place for music and there are some good restaurants in the area too.

This is a beautiful, quiet neighborhood with easy access to the interstate but away from the noise of the Quarter. We walked every day through Frenchmen Street and felt totally safe going to the main attractions on foot. We found a quaint neighborhood bar, deli and daiquiri place :) Do be aware that the side streets can be a bit... More
