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!

I disliked taking a cab to FBM. I loved getting there. There are interesting places to eat and the people are very friendly and service oriented. There is an excellent restaurant in the Rice District, named so because of the unloading of rice history named Maritza.

On earlier trips, this was a spot to be avoided. Not so much any more. The streets are safe and clean, and it's a nice little neighborhood. Local restaurants and bars, so you can hang with the locals, who tend to be welcoming and laid back. It's a nice break from the Quarter, and a great area to get the... More

You'll save several dollars and avoid the crush of Frenchmen's Street if you do this. Found several pubs and restaurants with a real neighborhood feel. At about 10 p.m., everyone with dogs is out on the streets, talking at the corners, and relaxing outside.

Over the last 6 years since Katrina this area has been transforming into a new area of lots of restaurants bars and cool residential settings. Use to be shaky at night- now 25-45yo people walking everywhere at all hours.

After a little too much hustle-bustle of the French Quarter, just go 'round the corner for instant relief of the path less traveled. The neighborhood seems a bit cleaner than the FQ & quiet, relaxed & safe. No pushiness here; feel free to linger. No nonsense affordable food is available. Enjoy!

Quieter, safer, and beautiful, a close walk to Frenchmen street and not far from the french Quarter.
