If you go into Faubourg Marigny from Frenchmen Street you see some wonderful parts of the city with stunning houses - some being sold by Southeby's. Some good eating places too.

The area is certainly up and coming with new bars and great restaurants. One may feel the neighborhood is a bit seedy, but it is safe. There is alot of restoration going on and you can tell this will be the NEW place to be.

The other reviews of FM speak to all that is so right on with this side of NOLA. From the best music to the best BBQ (see The Joint reviews) all set amidst architecture that matched the late October 2016 weather...oh so Caribbean. Just perfect....More

This area is kind of where the locals go at night type of area. It is right next to the French Quarter and has a lot of nightlife and shopping, just not quite as fast as the FQ. Check it out!

Block after block of traditional wooden houses, with little traffic or noise and even less pretension. I stayed at an Airbnb shotgun house on Dauphine Street and thoroughly enjoyed being in this area. Drinks and cheap eats can be had at Mimi's nearby.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
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
