Pizza Place
“ AMAZING pizza. Its my personal favorite and it’s super quirky and definitely a hipster spot. Next door is Bratz y'all, Down the street is a cool beer brewery called Parleaux Beer Lab and Bud Rips & markey's bar (Probably the best hipster dive bars, quite the eclectic New Orleans crowd but so fun)”

Market
“This is a food hall on the outskirts of the Marigny neighborhood, with a variety of local food truck turned brick and mortar vendors, so there is something for everyone. This place is great for breakfast, lunch or a quick bite between events. We love to grab a dozen raw oysters and wash it down with a nice glass of Rose.”

Neighbourhood
“If your searching for creativity, color, culture and good vibes head on over to the bywater! Just past the Marigny. Once you see the train tracks you'll know when you cross them that you are now in the Bywater! The bywater is a hip and favorable scene. It is known for its local artists and colorful homes, large murals, and eclectic feel. The bohemian neighborhood is similar to the marigny but more quirky. Lots of outdoor cafes, boisterous dive bars and hip restaurants! Breath taking views of the Mississippi River and City can be seen from the Crescent Park. ”
