The Marigny, as known as the Faubourg Marigny, was founded in the early 1800s on an old family plantation. It is located along the Mississippi River between the French Quarter and Bywater neighborhood. In recent years, this neighborhood has become very coveted real estate. Homes for sale in the Marigny offer quick French Quarter access, as well as many venues off the beaten path to enjoy. It is home to one of the most visited streets in New Orleans, Frenchmen Street. Frenchmen Street is a hub for live music and a second home to many local musicians.
Frenchmen Street features 8 well known venues for live music, most of which have musicians almost every night of the week! The types of music can vary from New Orleans Jazz and Blues to Reggae, Rock and Funk. The atmospheres are eclectic, the crowds are diverse, and visitors are sure to find a spot that speaks to them.
The Maison, 508 Frenchmen St, offers a gourmet menu and a variety of cocktails at a moderate price. The venue is not huge, but definitely offers enough space to enjoy the tunes and can also be rented for private parties and special events.
