The costumes were definitely more eclectic than those I saw on Bourbon. I have been on Frenchmen before the recent Halloween and it is a foodie and gallery paradise. Enjoy.

The music venues on Frenchmen street are definiitely the place to be. Bourbon is loud and obnoxious where Frenchmen venues are fun and inviting. BMC is my new favorite hangout !

Everything is the same but less expensive than on Bourbon St. Lots of music, great shops, and great people!

We had such a fun time bar hopping on Frenchmen Street. Within a few blocks there are so many options for hearing a wide variety of musical genres. All the places we went did not have a cover charge, but they do ask you to...More

Took our two 21 year old boys to enjoy the music! Got every flavor of sound you can imagine. If you like a full band at every stop on your bar hop tour, this is the place for you.

Wow, is this place over-rated. Maybe it's better than Bourbon Street, but mostly dirty, crowded, and unpleasant. I'd pass it up and find a good restaurant were you could get a good meal and a Jazz group.

Frenchmen St went from being an “underground” area for many years, to now a bustling “must see” area of New Orleans. At what was once a place only the locals frequented, bc tourists were unaware of its location, it has now quickly become a hub...More

I found the music venues, food options and general vibe of this street to be the best in the area. It starts “waking up” around 2pm on a weekday.

First time visitors to NOLA for the Saints vs LA, some friends that live local took us to some clubs and bars on Frenchman. A little quieter than Bourbon but we liked the less touristy vibe as well as the local artisan displays. Looking forward...More

I think this area must be great on the weekends. We were there during the week, during the day. Basically a sleepy area at that time. Nice feel and must more pleasant than the French Quarter. We ate at Horn ( fantastic!) and read that...More

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

We didn't travel with children, so I can't advise too much regarding family activities, but I would steer clear of Bourbon Street especially at night. It's very dirty and some of the shops may be inappropriate for kids... More

yes, they are. The music it varies from blues, to jazz, just enough to make you listen, and enough to make you dance.
