This area was a downer for me though I imagine that maybe in my 20s this would be a bit more tolerable. Homeless people were everywhere begging for money and the majority of the bars are super dive-y, borderline dilapidated and not much to look at. Do not go here during the day unless you are looking to be depressed.... More

Lots of mediocre bars and drunk college students. Add in an excessively large homeless population and you get 6th St. There are a few great restaurants and bars, but they're surrounded by a mess.

If I am not mistaken we had a lot of fun during our first visit to 6th Street! Just kidding, we remember it... mostly. They had the streets shut down when we were here on a Saturday night so there was no fear of cars or crossing the street. A lot of really good people watching and a ton of... More

Its great once you're in a bar. The bars themselves are fantastic and met some great people down 6th. I think i was asked about 9 times for money just walking down the street through.

Run down, dirty with abundance of unsavory people all around. Really gone down hill the last 3 years.

While I understand the music and bar scene (having spent a great deal of time in the French Quarter) this area is a little more seedy than I expected. Many people looking for handouts (had four people ask for money in one block) and a scammer trying to give unsolicited information for "tips". Unless you go in a group and... More

Please, Please don't walk 6th street during the day. I learned that the hard way....BUT at night, it is the happening place. People, food trucks and bars for day! I had a great time. My favorite bar was chilling on the rooftop of Maggie Mae's!
