Hidden gem next door to the New Orleans Marriott. The pulled pork sandwich and Korean chicken satay were scrumptious. The female waitress/bartender was a rock star running the entire front side, friendly and efficient.

Lovely little bar away from the madness and prices of Bourbon Street. It was in the next road down from where we stayed so not far to go. Did not try the food, but what people had looked good. Very chilled, bar staff very friendly.

A really cool place which I thought I wanted to check out, however anyone that brings kids under the age of 21 with them will be rejected at the door, I wish I knew before going there.

One you find this cute friendly bar, you will continue to stop in. The bartenders are friendly, the bar is well stocked and the food is really good. Not the Bourbon Street Scene, which makes it even better.

We went to a place down the street to find a late bite, the kitchen was closed but bartender recommended BackSpace. It was awesome ! Fun bar, awesome cheeseburger and fries and reasonable ! Worth getting off the beaten path to find.

This was one of our nearest bars to our hotel at the Quarter House. The staff were good, we were able to get seats easily enough and the beer selection was different and all good.

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
