The trendy, hipster neighborhood that's just five minutes downriver from the French Quarter. Food & Wine Magazine calls the Bywater New Orleans Hottest Neighborhood. Artists and musicians relocated to Bywater when the French Quarter became too pricey. Now joined by professionals and young families, its high elevation has allowed it to thrive post Katrina as it never flooded. The Bywater along with neighboring Faubourg Marigny are historic districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places. They are two of the most colorful neighborhoods in New Orleans. The Architectural styles borrow heavily from the colonial French and Spanish and have elements of the Caribbean. This unique blending of architectural elements over the last three centuries has resulted in an architectural style unique to the city of New Orleans. There are many incredible restaurants, hip bars, lively pubs and art galleries scattered throughout the neighborhood.
Like Satsuma Cafe & Coffee House – it’s a favorite breakfast and lunch joint featuring some of the freshest and most innovative choices in town – like their sweet potato pancakes – the tattooed and pierced wait staff really know how to cook. Oxalis is a whiskey focused bar that is also an amazing restaurant. Food includes Korean bo ssam (pork belly, mushrooms or shrimp served) and Cajun-spiced buttered rum popcorn. There are also chicken wings, a amazing burger, steak frites and duck confit. In addition to the restaurant there is a great back bar with a fireplace. Elizabeth’s restaurant is very popular for breakfast, lunch and brunch - their praline bacon is a cross between praline candy and salty pork, truly amazing and not to be missed. Mariza is another great restaurant. It's in the Rice Mill Lofts on the corner of Chartres Street & Press Street just a 10 minute walk from our house. It’s a beautiful hip space with an Italian influenced menu - incredibly fresh and delicious.
There is an amazing local pizza place right around the corner from our house called Pizza Delicious. Amazingly great pizza, voted Best in New Orleans for the past several years. Their Peppadew & Arugula Pizza is my favorite. It’s a quick three-block walk from the house. Piety Street Sno-Balls is directly across the street from Pizza Delicious.
It’s an adorable snow cone stand in an old ironworks. They features flavors like kaffir lime, made with citrus from a neighbor’s tree, and Vietnamese coffee, the secret to which is a big can of Café du Monde ground coffee. Plus six flavors of Kleinpeter Ice Cream.
Euclid Records is a vinyl music store with a funky ambiance – it has a huge selection specializing in jazz, soul and New Orleans music. It’s next to Pizza Delicious and across the street from Piety Street Sno-Balls. They also do live music events from time to time.
The Joint is an amazing BBQ restaurant on the Corner of Royal Street & Mazant Street, 7 blocks from our house, an 8 minute walk. Great ribs, chicken and pulled pork. Delicious sides. And the Peanut Butter Pie is hard to resist for dessert. Great homemade iced tea & lemonade and also a full bar. Lots of tables and a bar inside.
Bywater snowballs and snacks are next door. Serving some of the best sandwich wraps, snowballs, nachos, hotdogs, and various other snacks.
The Country Club is an elegant retreat that offers a lushly landscaped saltwater pool, a hot tub & a sauna. Plus an amazing restaurant with two bars (one inside & one outside). It’s the perfect setting for a relaxing afternoon – memorable meals, poolside cocktails, poolside dining and the friendliest staff in town. Saints and LSU games are screened on a 25-foot projector at the pool. Saturday brunch features a bottomless mimosa and a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar with 50 ingredients. And it's happy hour any time it rains.
Thursday night in Bywater is the night to go to Vaughan’s Lounge as it is Kermit Ruffins's night. Go early and get some of the barbecue Kermit is often cooking up before a show. Another popular place for dinner and music seven nights a week is Bacchanal, a funky wine shop on Poland Street. Here a cast of rotating chefs turns Bacchanal’s back courtyard into a food destination by showcasing their multicultural cooking. Guests sit at picnic tables and enjoy the great food, fine wine and top-notch live music.
The historic renovation business is also booming in the Bywater. Attracted by the neighborhood’s gorgeous architecture and “high and dry” elevation, many projects are already completed or underway. World-renowned architect Andres Duany recently completed his Bywater Cottages – four newly built, hurricane-resistant houses designed to blend perfectly with the neighborhood. “Ninety percent of Bywater’s architecture is gorgeous and historic; my new Bywater Cottages harmonize perfectly with that centuries-old architecture,” said Duany.
The Bywater Art Lofts were completed in November 2008. This old garment factory has been rethought and reconstructed as 67 live-work loft-style apartments reserved for working artists of all disciplines. The second Saturday of every month is Saint Claude Arts District Night - all of the art galleries in the neighborhood are open from 6PM - Midnight. The Bywater Art Lofts always puts on a great event as do the many other galleries throughout Bywater & Marigny.
