Loved the music surrounding the area and Loved being just a smidgen off the French Quarters. We stayed at the Jazz Suite in the middle of Frenchmen Street. The Mideastern Restaurant down the street took good care of us. And the music, ohh the music.

This was my favorite neighborhood to walk around in, and not too far from the French Quarter. Lots of great, colorful houses full of personality. People were quite friendly. I'm told this area is gentrifying, but I didn't see much evidence of it (I live in the land of gentrification). Maybe it's become safer over the years? I generally wouldn't... More

The neighborhood is a potpourri of shops covering many options. Food, drink, coffee, bakery, deli, booze, music, clothing, art, bed and breakfast, scenic views, record store, all night grocery, and wonderful homes covering the gamut of styles native to NOLA! Walk over and check it out !!!

It feels like a real piece of old New Orleans...but being gentrified fast. Good clubs, nice restaurants, wonderful homes. We toured on bikes and that was especially fun.

More local talent plays on Frenchmen Street. Several clubs have food and music. This is where you will find more traditional New Orleans music than on Bourbon St. The restaurants are also excellent.

Everyone knows about the French Quarter in New Orleans, but the real mavericks that venture outside of those tourist saturated walls are first to discover the Faubourg Marigny. Originally, the neighborhood was a “suburb” of the Quarter as folks walked home from work in that commercial area. But, over time, the Marigny has evolved into a destination in its own... More

WHat can I say - hugely disappointed with this area. Run down, vagrants hanging around at street corners, as a lone female traveller I never felt comfortable - I normally go to Miami and Key West every year and certainly have never felt unsafe and I am not your average 60 yr old who goes to bed early with a...

Frenchman St is a more laid back version of Bourbon St, with great music, food and bars. The surrounding neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, and still within walking distance of the French Quarter. Book a stay at the Marigny Manor House - you will love it!
