I passed this shop last time we visited New Orleans and it was closed so I was looking forward to visiting it today. We were too late to catch the glassblowing but browsed the store. The guy at the till has got to be the rudest person I've encountered in this wonderful city. To start with he did not acknowledge... More

I was first exposed to glass art, while stationed on Okinawa 8 years ago. I've since been mindful of glass art of WA in addition to places I've visited. We stumbled upon this tiny glass gem coming back from the WWII Museum. They'll have glass blowers in on Saturday, but we're flying out so we'll miss them. This world traveler... More

The glassblowing artist was awesome. He was kind, safety-minded, and an excellent teacher. He made the class fun and exciting. The management, an older lady, was another story. We were greeted rudely and she interrupted our class twice and yelled and berated our instructor for his "lack of safety". Unfortunately, her interruptions, while we were handling molten glass, made the... More

My daughters took a two-hour glass blowing workshop and were so inspired that now they want to continue studying this. The instructor was patient and showed them how to blow 4 different pieces each. Well worth the expense.

Two hours flew by while my husband and I made 3 glass ornaments, 4 glasses - 1 highball, 1 tom Collins, 1 wine goblet stemware, 1 wine glass and a fancy glass bowl! Ok, Craig, our super instructor does a lot, guiding your hands holding the tools and lots of close supervision, but it was the best class ever!!!!!! It... More

Easy on the street parking $6 for 2 hours, may use credit card. Great facility and instructor to blow your own beautiful glass work of art. This should be on your bucket list. It may seem expensive but you can blow 3-5 items in the 2 hour class. You could keep your work of art or make them for presents.... More

While walking our pups (stayed at a hotel in the Warehouse District for holiday vacation time), we were thrilled to find this studio and enticed by the lovely works of art in the front windows. We are quite familiar with glass art, both blown and stained foil/lead. This is the first studio we have been to, that allows visitors to... More

I visited New Orleans glassworks two days ago with my aunt and cousin. We had an AMAZING instructor, Kyle- who was so kind, patient, helpful and skilled. We each made three glass pieces.

We happened on the store in front and then found that they had an active studio in the back that was open to the public. It was great and the works these artists produced were phenomenal. They had chairs set up so you could safely watch them creating their masterpieces from a glob of glass to a work of art.... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
