There are wonderful antique and jewelry shops on Royal Street. There is, also, a spinoff cafe like Cafe De Monde, that is called Cafe Beignet, where we had a killer chicken salad sandwich. A stroll down Royal Street is a must if you visit New Orleans.

When crossing the Quarter, do it on Royal. This street has less bars but more galleries and antique stores as well as nice restaurants.

Wonderful street to get lost in! The shops are great, and the live music that breaks out right on the street are fun.

When in New Orleans you will find yourself just wandering around every street, Royal St was fun and very diverse. You will find music, art and delicious food.

This street is an entertaining way to window shop ! Lots of great little shops on this street AND you get to see some buskers when they have the roads closed off. A lovely walk for a couple looking to pass the time.

We stayed on the corner of Royal and St Peter and it was such a great experience. I would say that corner has the best street music in the city. We especially enjoyed Doreen on clarinet and a wonderful band St Cinder. Galleries and great shopping kept me busy and this is a world away from Bourban. Very classy and... More

The shopping is fun, but every street corner during the day are entertainers of such wonderful music, street acrobatics, singing, and artisans.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
