This is a real unsung gem in New Orleans

Plan to spend at least a few hours along Julia Street -- the galleries, the restaurants, and the museums.

Julia Row used to be ramshackle. After the 1984 World's Fair, it became part of the Historic Warehouse District renovation and today houses top restaurants like Emeril's and a plethora of terrific art galleries. It is pleasant to walk and convenient to reach. It lies within walking distance of all kinds of cafes and restaurants.

Not knowing it was Open Gallery, I walked through Gallery Row during the afternoon, found my favorite painters, and returned that night with my husband for the openings. Callan Contemporary was featuring Michael Kessler, a truly gifted and organic painter and Allison Stewart's large and colorful botanicals were at the Arthur Roger Gallery. Ariodante was the most fun, crowded with... More

We took the Riverfront street car to this part of town and had a fun few hours. The galleries are pretty much grouped together, so you didn't have to walk very far in between (get a map from one of the galleries). Owners were friendly and the art was good. Unfortunately, the two art museums we wanted to visit were... More

LLove this street in NOLA. Great revitalised influx of wharehouse-turned-condos. Abundance of artists and galleries. Fantastic retaurants. A few little outdoor cafe coffehouses. This street caters to many travelling in from 'awa'y in the Hollywood crowd shooting films in NOLA. Several of the condo buildings have longer term executive rentals which are let out to those in the industry. Who... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
