North of the historic French Quarter is the New Orleans neighbourhood referred to as the Marigny. The relatively small area – about a third of a square mile, depending on which map you consult – contains the majority of the world-renowned Frenchmen Street. With a multitude of live music and dining options and art markets, Frenchmen Street is a slightly more relaxed nightlife alternative to the potential chaos of Bourbon Street. Immediately downriver of the oldest part of the city, the Marigny was New Orleans' second developed suburb, established in 1806. With an abundance of traditional and restored architecture, performance spaces and artist exposés, the Marigny is where the locals go for their nightlife. After you've had enough of the touristy French Quarter, hop on Decatur Street and follow it all the way down to the mouth of the Marigny.
