This wonderful, cozy apartment with your own private entrance and shared front porch in an 1889 Eastlake Victorian House is your gateway to the heart of one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in the world.
In the Lower Garden District historical section of New Orleans, this house is just two blocks from satisfying your craving for antiques of the finest kind, the best roasted coffee, food at some of the most amazing restaurants, and booze at an incredibly eclectic collection of bars on Magazine Street.
It is just three blocks from the Convention Center (if you, unfortunately, have to work), and Mardi Gras World, where you can see how that party started, and where many of the parades start during Mardi Gras itself. As a matter of fact, between Mardi Gras World and St. Charles Street, 30... Yes... THIRTY parades go within six blocks of this house (but not right in front of the house). That's good, see? You won't find anybody sleeping it off on your porch in the morning.
Speaking of St. Charles Street, a six-block walk, past some of the most beautiful and elegant houses, between Magazine and St. Charles, gets you to the streetcar. The closest stop is St. Charles at Felicity. $1.25 (exact change please) gets you a ride on the best way to travel in the U.S.A.!
You say you want to party... Hmm... No problem, but remember that this is a residential neighborhood, and I like my neighbors, so the real partying will be done out in the city. If Magazine Street and its pleasures are too sedate for you, head down Annunciation Street toward the Warehouse District, CBD, and the French Quarter. a 10-minute walk gets you to The Rusty Nail, Bellocq, Ugly Dog Saloon, Dino's, The Circle Bar, Republic New Orleans, and on and on...
Feeling more thoughtful... The wonderful National WWII Museum, one of the most popular attractions in New Orleans, is a ten-minute walk away as well, and is great for kids, too. The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and the Confederate Memorial Hall Museum are right next door. By the way, if all the walking starts to bother you, and you have taken full advantage of the streetcar, a phone call will get a cab to the house in 5 minutes.
Food... Well, what can I say? Cochon, Annunciation, Eleven 79, Mayas Nuevo Latino, HiVolt, and Half Moon are some of our favorite places within short walking distance. there is no limit to where you can eat, and we will be happy to give you a list, suggestions, and so forth.
To sum up, in terms of location, you have it all right here at your fingertips! Enjoy!
