Faubourg Marigny Tours and Activities

Faubourg Marigny
A hotbed of musical talent, this historic New Orleans neighborhood is one of the best spots in the city to catch a live show. Dating back to the early 1800s, Faubourg Marigny is a nightlife destination popular with locals looking for authentic jazz and blues without the French Quarter crowds.

The Basics
The biggest draw of Faubourg Marigny is Frenchmen Street, a lively 4-block stretch studded with characterful bars and live music venues. Many don’t have cover charges, so go ahead and hop from bar to bar with a to-go drink in hand, enjoying the neighborhood’s music scene and watching impromptu street performances. By day, Faubourg Marigny is a fun place to stroll among colorful Creole buildings or sip chicory coffee at one of the inviting independent cafés.

If you’d like the insight of a guide, several city tours explore the neighborhood along with other top New Orleans sights.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Check out St. Roch Market on St. Claude Avenue for casual Creole cooking in a revitalized food hall.
  • Top-rated music venues in the area include the Spotted Cat, Blue Nile, Three Muses, and the Maison.
  • Faubourg Marigny has become a popular place for short-term vacation rentals and can be a great option for budget travelers—just be sure to respect the residents.

How to Get There
A triangular area between Esplanade and Elysian Fields avenues, Faubourg Marigny is about a 10-minute walk northeast and downriver from the French Quarter. 

When to Get There
For a sleepier scene, take a daytime walk through Faubourg Marigny to admire the historic Creole architecture. The neighborhood really comes alive after dark, when music acts take the stage. 

The Art Garage
A new incarnation of the former Frenchmen Art Market, this hip Faubourg Marigny event space on St. Claude Avenue hosts art exhibits, music, comedy, and DJs. Check the calendar online to see what’s happening during your visit.
