Leave the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street by strolling (something you can't do on crowded Bourbon street) down this pleasant thorough fair that cuts through the heart of the French Quarter. Restaurants and shops dot this street but the crowds don't. On Chartres you...More

Very nice and interesting street south of Royal Street which is more famous . Chartres is quieter and less popular but offers some nice architecture . Nice street to stroll along !

Napoleon House is our favorite for a Pimms and Sazurac. It's quieter than the Burbon street and a great walk.

This location is smack in the middle of all the great things in the quarter! We did a homeaway rental on this street and walked literally everywhere, to every attraction/restaurant/bar we wanted to go to! Love, love, love this place!

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely

out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
