Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

Hi! I'm sorry, but we have a no-pet policy. I would suggest checking out the website bringfido for some wonderful, dog-friendly alternatives - including the Lookout Inn in the Bywater!
