It's got the character of Treme and Frenchmen St is the best blocks in NOLA for live music. Still has a walking culture and the most obnoxious of the tourists don't tend to make it there. You can't go wrong.

This is a very nice quaint neighborhood and well worth a visit. I suggest a quick read about Bernard Marigny and James Humble.

We stayed at a B&B (Auld Sweet Olive, see my review), which was lovely. Faubourg Marigny is outside of the French Quarter, but close enough to great music and good restaurants, with the benefit of a quieter, calmer vibe.

If you want good food and music in a young, vibrant atmosphere, then cross Esplanade and venture through the Marigny. The fun begins later in the evening.
