Faubourg Marigny, Bywater, and Tremé Feature


Top Reasons To Go

Explore Frenchmen Street: This bustling strip of bars, clubs, restaurants, cafés, and shops is the heart of the Marigny. At night, this is the place to hear live music and watch eccentric street artists.

Experience the birthplace of jazz.: Tremé is fertile ground for New Orleans musical traditions. Visit the site of Congo Square, where jazz was born (now in Louis Armstrong Park), or drop by the Backstreet Cultural Museum.

Discover the Bywater arts scene: This neighborhood is an enclave of artists, musicians, and creative outliers, and you'll see it in everything from the decorated cars and funky boutiques to the intricate street art that adorns the sides of warehouses and buildings.

Enjoy the Marigny architecture: In 1974 the entire Marigny neighborhood was added to the National Register of Historic Places, and 25 years later was awarded the distinguished "Great Places in America" designation by the American Planning Association.
