3 Blocks to the French Quarter, but don't just stop there:
We are only 1 block to Frenchman Street!
A little history:
The most famous and frequently visited section of Frenchmen Street is a short section in the Marigny neighborhood, just down river from the French Quarter. This area was once the plantation of a wealthy Creole born man who made the dice game Craps popular in America. He influenced the city of New Orleans with his joie de vivre–or a keen enjoyment of living– and extravagance. In 1806 his property was subdivided. The area of Frenchman Street in the Marigny neighborhood slowly developed into a happening block with a mix of a unique European flair and cosmopolitan feel.
Now, Frenchmen Street is the thriving epicenter of New Orleans music, culture, and food. The street’s eclectic mix of people, clubs, restaurants, and venues come together like a gumbo to form one of the most energetic and vibrant cultural hot spots in the entire world.
Come to Frenchmen Street to immerse yourself with the locals, and have an experience of New Orleans that you will never forget!
