The Art District

The Art District is one of my favorite places in New Orleans. I love walking around Julia Street and checking out new art exhibits, restaurants, and rooftops.

My favorite art gallery is MacGryder on Julia St. If you’re looking for local grub check out Auction House Market for all of your food hall eats. My personal favorite restaurants in the Art District are Compere Lapin and Otra Vez.

My favorite rooftop in this area would have to be at the Ace Hotel. The Catahoula Hotel also has movie nights on their rooftop bar and it’s always a blast! I typically bring my own blanket and order food from Midnight Noodle down the stairs. The Catahoula hotel is also super dog friendly so I bring my boxer with me all the time. Don’t forget to grab a Tipsy Parrot cocktail at the bar.

Pro Tip: The first Saturday of every month the art galleries have free wine. If you’re looking for drinks, tapas, and a sultry European vibe check out Bar Marilou.
