Additional Location Information

On a certain street in New Orleans, each night seems to bring a carnival of sights and sounds with music pouring out of barroom doors and sidewalks peopled with colorful characters. This street is in the heart of a dense, historic neighborhood filled with distinctive architecture and home to restaurants serving exotic food and Creole favorites.

If you think we're describing Bourbon Street and the French Quarter, you're wrong but actually very close. The Marigny is just right next door.

The Faubourg Marigny is the next neighborhood downriver from the French Quarter, just on the other side of Esplanade Avenue. Long a quiet residential neighbor to the celebrated Vieux Carre, the area has exploded in recent years into a vibrant destination for food, music and good times, with much of this activity concentrated on Frenchmen Street.

In our neighborhood, you won't see Mardi Gras beads, frozen daiquiri stands or T-shirt and feather boa shops. You are more likely to see New Orleanians who haven't set foot on Bourbon Street in years spend whole weekends romping around Frenchmen Street, bar-hopping for live music or eating out along its increasingly diverse restaurant row, strolling through art galleries or picking up crafts and fresh foods at the French Market.

In 1805, the nobleman Marquis Bernard De Marigny subdivided his vast plantation to create the Faubourg Marigny, the first suburb downriver from the original settlement that we now call the French Quarter. As Americans settled the area upriver from the French Quarter, immigrants and free people of color populated this downriver neighborhood.

The streets of this part of town, following a sharp curve in the nearby Mississippi River, branch out from the French Quarter's orderly grid into triangular patterns that create something like a labyrinth. Around each corner of this intriguing neighborhood lies something else to discover, whether it's a Creole mansion, an aromatic coffeehouse or a jazz band playing for a packed dance floor at a small club.

You will love the peace and quiet of the street, which is still so close to music, dining and the arts. La Peniche, a neighborhood 24/7 favorite is right across the street. Mule carriages clip clop past our front door on their way to Jackson Square.

The Inn is located at 735 Touro Street between Royal and Dauphine.
