Huck Finn's is well located, close to both Canal Street and the French Quarter, and the building itself has character. Inside, they seemed to be in the middle of some work, with buckets, tools and materials tucked against one wall in the dining room. I...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and

offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
