The most common definition of the French Quarter includes all the land stretching along the Mississippi River from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue (12 blocks) and inland to North Rampart Street (seven to nine blocks). It equals an area of 78 sq. blocks. Some definitions, such as city zoning laws, exclude the properties facing Canal Street, which had already been redeveloped by the time architectural preservation was considered, and the section between Decatur Street and the river, much of which had long served industrial and warehousing functions. Any alteration to structures in the remaining blocks is subject to review by the Vieux Carré Commission, which determines whether the proposal is appropriate for the historic character of the district. Its boundaries as defined by the City Planning Commission are: Esplanade Avenue to the north, the Mississippi River to the east, Canal Street, Decatur Street and Iberville Street to the south and the Basin Street, St. Louis Street and North Rampart Street to the west. Bourbon Street is a famous and historic street that spans the length of the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. When founded in 1718, the city was originally centered around the French Quarter. New Orleans has since expanded, but 'The Quarter' remains the cultural hub, and Bourbon Street is the street best known by visitors.
The most popular section of Bourbon Street is 'Upper Bourbon Street', an eight-block section of popular tourist attractions. Bourbon Street begins at Canal Street (across Canal is Carondelet Street in the New Orleans Central Business District). The straight street continues downriver, southwest to northeast a few blocks from and roughly paralleling the Mississippi River, and comes to its terminus at Pauger Street in the Faubourg Marigny. (In the 19th century, Pauger was named as a continuation of Bourbon Street.) Bourbon Street was named in honor of the House of Bourbon, the ruling French Royal Family, at the time of the city's founding.
From Dumaine Street to Pauger, Bourbon Street is largely residential with scattered businesses still catering to locals. Also on this stretch of Bourbon exists (Jean) Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, which is a very popular bar, showing the style of the original French buildings (before the Spanish iron balconies) which burned in the first Great New Orleans Fire (1788).
Though largely quiet during the day, Bourbon Street comes alive at night, particularly during the French Quarter's many festivals. Most popular among these is the annual Mardi Gras celebration, when Bourbon Street teems with hundreds of thousands of tourists. Local open container laws in the French Quarter allow drinking alcoholic beverages in the street in plastic containers (drinking from glass or cans is prohibited). The streets are packed with tourists drinking Hurricanes, Hand Grenades and Huge Ass Beers - a large plastic cup of draft beer marketed to tourists at a low price. Other festivals and events focusing on Bourbon Street include French Quarter Festival and Southern Decadence.
One of the oldest and most popular restaurants on Bourbon Street is Galatoire's, which was founded in 1905 by Jean Galatoire. Known for years by its characteristic line snaking down Bourbon Street, patrons would wait for hours just to get a table — especially on Fridays.
Two couples stayed at this condo over Mardi Gras season. The condo is in a great location, is within walking distance to the parade route, bourbon street and great restaurants. The place is nicely decorated with 1 large bedroom and bath and another smaller bedroom and bath. The beds are comfy. My husband and I got the larger room and although it was beautiful, the noise level from the street made it hard to get a good night's sleep. Bring earplugs. I think the owners could improve guest experience by having decent toiletries and water and coffee available for guests.
Great location! Great set up. The place was immaculate. It was wonderful to have our own rooms with private bathrooms. The living room kitchen area was perfect for just hanging out. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. I would definitely book this place again!
Great stay. We will be staying here again on future trips. Very good area everything is accessible from here.
Yes, there was some noise at night, but the location makes up for it a million times. The apartment was beautiful. Beds were so comfortable and everything was just right there. We had a wonderful stay!
This condo was exactly what we were looking for in New Orleans. Two couples shared the unit, and the two beds/baths we nicely separated and private. We also enjoyed the common spaces. There is a nice tv and comfortable furniture. So nice, that we got take out and had our own Super Bowl party!
The location is fantastic, and easy to access. The owners are friendly and accommodating.
I would definitely recommend this unit to others, and/or return myself.
