Springtime in New Orleans is a vibrant celebration, and the French Quarter is the center of the action!
To get in the spirit of the season, we’ve created a special spring walking tour of the French Quarter. Take a leisurely stroll with us as we visit classic establishments, local favorites, and a few hidden gems!
Café Beignet’s Parisian-style storefront is just down the block from our luxury hotel. It’s a beloved local gem that has been serving delicious pastries and coffee for two hundred years!
Breakfast is available all day every day, and you can catch live music in the afternoon on Wednesday – Sunday.
Keil’s Antiques on Royal Street features three floors filled with incredible 18th and 19th-century English, French and Continental antiques. Established in 1899, it’s a major reason why Royal Street is considered one of the best antiquing spots in the world.
Whether you’re buying or just browsing, Keil’s is a must-stop shop for any antique lover!
The Court of Two Sisters at 613 Royal Street is an iconic French Quarter establishment that features all of your favorite Cajun and Creole dishes.
Try a cup of Creole seafood gumbo, or embrace your inner New Orleanian and go with the Crawfish Napoleon.
This Grand Dame restaurant is a staple on local and national “Best of New Orleans” lists, and has won Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence every year since 1994.
Jackson Square is one of New Orleans’ National Historic Landmarks and an instantly recognizable NOLA scene.
Take a stroll through the square and you’ll find fantastic local arts and crafts, live music, and a melting pot of bona-fide New Orleans characters.
The Square is also home to St. Louis Cathedral, the oldest active Roman Catholic cathedral in the United States.
Located at 625 Chartres Street, Sylvain is a stylish bistro that serves top-notch cocktails and refined takes on classic Southern dishes.
It’s the perfect spot to enjoy an afternoon with friends or an intimate meal with a special one.
According to Sylvain’s website, “guests should feel comfortable laughing loudly, having a shot of whiskey, and lingering amongst friends.”
The New Orleans Pharmacy Museum honors the legacy of America’s first licensed pharmacist, Louis J. Dufilho, as well as the history of pharmacy and medicine in Louisiana.
This off-the-beaten-path museum is a fascinating treat. Pop in and explore the countless oddities on display and learn about the fascinating (but questionable) medical practices of years past.
The renowned Carousel Bar & Lounge, located just inside our front doors, is New Orleans’ only rotating bar. And with a colorful, magical facade that brings a smile to anyone’s face, it’s one stop on the tour that you won’t want to miss!
But the whimsical atmosphere is just one of the many reasons to visit the Carousel Bar. The weekly live music, the world-class bartenders, and the cocktail creations make our beloved hotel bar a vibrant local hotspot!
