    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
