Really interesting neighborhood to explore on foot, interesting and colorful houses, wonderful local bars and restaurants; has a real arts community feel to it.

Wrapping up my trip NO by visiting the Marigny turned out to be a fantastic idea. The neighborhood offers so much: a cool vibe, cool bars/restaurants and best of all, music. If the latter is what you're up for, you'll not be disappointed. I walked...More

Yes they have moved all the jazz music down here, and music is great, but the venue nothing special.

We always stay in Marigny as it's away from the cluster of the Bourbon Street area but close enough for easy walking access. There's plenty of nice restaurants, bars and shops and you'll only notice a little less crowds. It can be very busy at...More

This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, sitting right next to the French Quarter (THE oldest). As happens in many cities, this area previously was in serious decline, and was basically a dingy, dangerous slum. However, when the World's Fair came, investors...More

Want to know what it's like to really live in New Orleans? Visit "the Marigny". Fun, funky, with great eats and cool music. You can't go wrong. Way, way better than Bourbon St. (as any local will tell you.)

We stayed with some friends in the Marigny. I can tell you that it is the place to be! Close to everything and relatively quiet. We had a marvelous time. There is a little restaurant called Horns on Touro that is a must try!

This neighborhood is very residential. We stayed at a B&B and felt right at home. There are lots of lovely homes and some works in progress. There is a street car line going in on St. Claude. We were happy with the proximity of the...More

This area was unknown to me so I wasn't sure of what to expect. The old, original homes, the cafes and the walkability of all of it made it a great location to stay in.

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

Hi, We are visiting New Orleans in May and cannot wait. We have been advised to get out and visit the Faubourg Marigny area - we are not hiring a car and will be getting about under our own steam - mostly walking and buses etc. Can you tell me how easy it is to get from the City Centre out to Faubourg marigny on the bus and how long it would take? Thanks

From Canal St (Central Bus District) you would follow the river and first you hit the French Quarter, then the Faubourg Marigny and then the Bywater. They are all built along the river, the original city. Short distance... More
