One fine visit

Spent time enough to visit the city play a little poker and but a Setson from Meyer. Everything went well save the WSOP event. But I had a killer hat.

I left my beloved Australian drover hat on a train in Japan (where I live). It never showed up in the Lost & Found. A business trip a few weeks later took me to New Orleans, where I spotted Meyer the Hatter. I thought a hat store might have something similar to what I had lost. In fact, it had... More

We make this a stop on all of our visits. The multi-generational owners treat visitors like guests. Michael was great to us and fun to chat with. And what a selection! It's hat heaven.

Listen I come here every time I come to New Orleans and I always leave with a hat. Today was no different. I bought a nice little bleached straw for the spring. These folks know hats and have a large selection to choose from. I like Biltmore but they have many top brands on hand. They are very knowledgeable and... More

Everyone around here wear hats. The selection is second to none with a very knowledgable staff and a vast stock. If you are looking for a high quality hat, go here.

I'd been meaning to visit this store for years and I'm so glad I finally had time. This is a great store - a one-of-a-kind experience. Michael Meyer took care of us, and expertly fit me with a Stetson fedora. My wife wasn't shopping for a hat but still found a uniquely-New Orleans purple porkpie for Mardi Gras. Michael re-did...

Staffed by people whose families have been there for generations, you will find hats of every size and color, both mens and womens. Pictures are all over the wall of celebrities who have bought hats there in the past. Its a fun place to go but if you like hats, you must go. We did buy a "few!"

Buy a hat and become part of history. When I asked the Bell Hop at the Royal Soonest Hotel where I could purchase a good hat, he sent me to Meyer The Hatter. Only a couple blocks away, Meyer The Hatter is a four-generation hat store that is amazingly famous. You'll be amazed at the stars that have visited this... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
