One of the most historical stops in the French Quarter is the Old Absinthe House, a landmark located on the corner of Bourbon and Bienville. The bar was named the Absinthe Room when drinking absinthe grew in popularity in New Orleans.
We felt obligated to at least give Bourbon Street a shot, but in reality we were simply getting it out of the way. What I wanted of Bourbon street, I found to be just a few blocks west in the Marigny. If you want to get an authentic New Orleans experience, skip Bourbon Street and head straight for Frenchman Street, and never look back.
The 2nd oldest restaurant in New Orleans! Located in the heart of the French Quarter, facing the historic French Market, Tujague's has retained its reputation for providing an unforgettable dining experience in the original Creole tradition. Tujague's has been a favorite for over 150 years, entertaining and satisfying the delightfully robust appetites of French Quarter patrons.
