Welcome! The Okra Inn is a renovated Camelback cottage in historic Mid City area on the Canal Street Car line. Each side rents as private three bedrooms suites or the full six bedrooms can be available. Enjoy a 10 minute walk to Bayou St John and City Park (home of New Orleans Museum of Art), and a 15 minute street car ride to the Historic New Orleans French Quarter. Around the corner from the famous Angelo Brocato’s and many other restaurant options. Blocks away from many other famous New Orleans restaurants, such as Mandina’s, Liuzza’s, and Katie’s.

About the neighbourhood
Mid City is the heart of the City! We are close to the French Quarter, Uptown , and the Lake. City Park, the most beautiful park around, is minutes away. And Bayou St John meanders right through the neighborhood. We also have, hands down, the best poboys at Parkway Bakery and Tavern. And within 5 blocks we have over 15 restaurants, a seafood market, two groceries, a cute neighborhood coffee shop, and several bars. Ya'll are going to love it!
