The Place To Be

While Bourbon Street has been a tourist mainstay, the big buzz location that is purported to be the only way to truly experience the Big Easy, Frenchmen Street has consistently provided its visitors authentic historic architecture, incredible local live music, and an unforgettable nightlife.
Originally the plantation of Bernard de Marigny, a Creole famous for not only his vivacious love of life but also for bringing craps to America, the areas was broken up into a neighborhood in 1806. Many of the house along the street have been occupied for more than a century and just walking along its length will let you relive the past in just the collection of historic buildings. In the ’80s, bars and live music venues began to pop up, mostly in a three-block section in the Fauborg Marigny neighborhood. It was these locales, such as Snug Harbor, the Spotted Cat, and the Maison, that gained the street the distinction of being the place for those who know to go for their music, food, and excitement. Even though that secret is a little less secret today, a reservation at the hotels near Frenchmen Street in New Orleans will still give you your best chance to eat, party, and live like a true local.
