It used to be that Frenchman Street was where only the locals went - but not any more. Tourist flock here now but it doesn't detract from the wonderful and intimate music venues which populate every block of this lovely neighborhood. The food and drink...More

Good music and fun people watching! Fun place to hang out that is more interesting than some better known places in New Orleans.

Great Music all along the street. Checkpoint Charlie's, Snug Harbor and many more. Also great food. Affordable parking lots nearby. Also a few blocks away is the U.S. Mint site of New Orleans Jazz Museum. And Frenchmen Street is very close to French Quarter but...More

SOOOO much better than Burbon Street, not as crazy, better music and excellent places to eat. Check out the spotted cat if your on Frenchman Street.

This is what you thought NOLA was really like. Not the bawdy, smelly bars of Bourbon, with rock music at a decibel level that can kill, but smaller bars/clubs with jazz and small combos putting out the music that made the city famous. The restaurants...More

Love this street. Lots of music and things to do! Bring some cash and your walking shoes. There are local artists, selling their creations and everyone around is friendly.

Music in bars , clubs and on the street itself. Superb atmosphere. Snug Harbour and DBA are especially recommended.

Great place located at end of French quarter for art and music. Lots of neat bars to see great local performers play. Close to French Market and easy parking at the Elysian Fields lot. We enjoyed our stroll down this street.

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

Jackson Square is much more lively in the day time, lots to do. Frenchman is much more lively in the evening with lots of great music. Enjoy
