Neighbourhood: French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the place to go if you want to see what the local artists are producing. There are so many different styles on display. If you are lucky enough, you can even chat with the artists themselves. From the outside, the building doesn't look that much (it is only when you go inside that you find the treasure trove) but there is some interesting artwork to be found as you approach the building.

We bought a few items and enjoyed seeing the various styles and media. We had an item custom made (a variation of an item on display) and the artist made the item in time for us to pick it up before we left New Orleans.

This place was almost a palate-cleanser after our brief visit to the French Market a block or so away. Dutch Alley held all the things we were hoping to find in the Market, with the added bonus of having friendly and welcoming staff and some of the artists on hand.

We stepped into the - blessedly cool - building and were immediately greeted and welcomed. The nice man who said hello didn't attach himself to our sides, just asked us to let him know if we had questions or needed help.

It's a moderately-sized space, filled with hand-crafted art ranging from paintings to sculptures to furniture to jewelry. We took our time roaming the aisles, stopping at a few intriguing pieces (there was a lamp made from Cypress knee that fascinated us) and admiring the creativity of the artists.

I spent a good deal of the time in front of a large jewelry display, which was full of pieces designed and made by local artisan Sabine Chadborn. We were there so long Sabine had time to stop by, introduce herself, and let us know she was over on the other side of the building if we had questions about any of her wares.

I ended up buying two pairs of earrings from her stall and have worn them with pride - and received lots of compliments - since coming home.

I'm glad we found this little building, tucked a bit back from the main street. We like to support local artists as often as we can, and it's nice to know that we met and supported an artist who took the time to strike up a friendly - if brief - conversation with us.

This little place has so much to see and a nice variety of work by local artists. Had a chat with Caren Nowak, a photographer whose work I love. I like Dutch Alley because you can find really unique gifts at different price points while supporting the real artists of New Orleans. I stop in here every time I'm in New Orleans.

I make a point to stop in the shop each time I visit New Orleans. There’s always something new and unique to discover. The artists are welcoming and friendly. Great spot to find gifts or a memento of your visit.

Lots of very interesting artwork from local artists. Some creative ideas and unusual work. This is a co-op and is run by the local artists.

25 local artists take turns working in and selling their art in this amazing venue. All types of art from prints, to paintings on wood, to wood puzzles, jewelry to leather work. I ealked Bourbon street, Ducarte street into the French Market... this is by the most original store in the French Quarter. One of a kind art. Something for every collector... from a $25 print to a $500 masterpiece. This art co-op is a must see for anyone that appreciates the arts!!

IF you want to buy wonderful art and you are not particularly rich go to this store. All kind of artists gather talent, all kinds of crafts and pieces of art, there is something for everyone, and very original. It is run by the artists themselves. The best store in New Orleans, in my opinion if you are looking for elegant and artistic gifts to self or others.
