All of the food, culture, and revelry that lure travelers to New Orleans are within a short stumble from this comfortable Uptown apartment.
-Start your morning with croissants, King Cake, and and coffee at La Boulangerie
-Dine on Boudin meatloaf at Ignatius. Or if local fare doesn't strike your fancy, feast upon Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Burgers, Pizza, Middle Eastern, or Japanese - all within a few blocks of the property.
-Fancy an upscale dining experience? Please your palette at Upperline, La Petite Grocery, Dick and Jenny's, or Vizard's.
-The best live local music in town can be found at Les Bons Temps - one block away. The hallowed halls of Tipitina's are a five minute walk.
-Libations? We have them on every street corner.
The property was completely remodeled in 2008, and everything remains shiny and new. Cable and wireless internet are provided. Relax at the end of the day on the front porch swing. Sleep off the previous night's revelries in a comfortable queen sized bed. The property has one bedroom and one bathroom, hardwood floors, ceiling fans, central air and heat, and all of the comforts of home. The sofa folds out into a full sized bed for additional guests.
Magazine Street bus service and the St. Charles Streetcar provide easy downtown access.
Did someone say Mardi Gras? Uptown parades are just a block away.
I moved to New Orleans in 1993 to attend Tulane University. And the City that Care Forgot wasted no time sucking me in. As a young man, this Uptown neighborhood met my every want and need - a half block from Mardi Gras, a quick stumble to some of the best live music in the city at Tipitina's and Les Bons Temps, fine eats at Dick and Jenny's, and plenty of libations within striking distance. Now I am older, with three children, and though my needs have changed the neighborhood still provides - ice cream at Creole Creamery, snowballs at Hansen's Sno-Bliz, two playgrounds, a children's library, and pizza. And of course Mardi Gras.
I have moved three times in the last 15 years. Never more than 6 blocks.
