About the neighbourhood
Mid City is the heart of the City! We are close to the French Quarter, Uptown , and the Lake. City Park, the most beautiful park around, is minutes away. And Bayou St John meanders right through the neighborhood. We also have, hands down, the best poboys at Parkway Bakery and Tavern. And within 5 blocks we have over 15 restaurants, a seafood market, two groceries, a cute neighborhood coffee shop, and several bars. Ya'll are going to love it!
Getting around
We are located on the Canal Streetcar line. It's a 10 to 20 minute ride to The French Quarter (longer during rush hour). We are also located on the Carrolton Ave bus line (to get to Uptown).
