Prefer Royal. The shops are nice and the street entertainment was fun. There were plenty of places to get a drink. Stop at the carousel bar. The moving bar is unique.

We used this street most of the time instead of Bourbon to walk from our hotel to the river, French Market, etc. It didn't stink like Bourbon Street!

If you can stroll Royal on either of the gallery nights you are in for a special treat! Over a dozen shops and galleries are open and welcome you to peruse their wares and art works.

This is one of our favorite rest. We eat at the bar and people watch. Fantastic oysters and friend green tomatoes.

Take your time and wander Royal street - the only reason for 1 star off is that most places close by 7pm. We were lucky enough to be there on Dirty Linen Night so all the stores were open late. Clothing, art, decor - you name it and you'll find it on Royal Street. Danger alert - drinking while shopping... More

Start your stroll at Hotel Monteleone's Carousel Bar for a Sazerac drink, then go to Royal Oyster House for great seafood, then walk passed the cornstalk wrought iron fence #915, see impressive balconies on Gallier House #1132 and don't miss the spooky LaLaurie House #1140..lots of history there. Nicholas Cage owned it once upon a time.

Nice building. A walk on Bourban, Royal and Chartres through the French quarter will show you the charme of New Orleans. Bourbon's classic music bars from Jazz to Pop and Rock, the art on Royal and the street music at Jackson square is just unique in this country.

You must visit the French Quarter & you must visit Royal St in the quarter if you love antiques. Some of their collections are among the best in the world!

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
