What is special about Royal Street

The street begins on Canal Street and then passes through the French Quarter, Faubourg Marigny, Bywater and Lower Ninth Ward.

Part of the street in the upper French Quarter is known for its antique shops and art galleries. Prices in these stores are usually high - this is one of the most expensive places in the world. Shops sell not just old items, but also such a rarity as exquisite furniture belonging to the royal power of past centuries.

Every day, the three quarters of Royal Street between St. Louis and St. Ann Street are closed to car traffic to create a pedestrian zone. At this time, there are numerous street festivals. In the vicinity you can hear outstanding contemporary musicians.

Despite the disastrous consequences of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 in much of New Orleans, the devastation bypassed Royal Street because of its high location.

What to look at

  • Hotel Monteleone and Carousel Bar

Monteleone is one of the grandest hotels of the old school in New Orleans. Who just was not here - from Ernest Hemingway to William Faulkner. In addition, every year there passes Tennessee Williams Literary Festival.

Almost everyone who comes to New Orleans has heard of the Le Monde café, but it seems that Beignet will soon overtake him in popularity. French donuts are more bender and softer than competitors. This is one of the most romantic outdoor recreation places in the quarter. You will fall into a quiet kingdom, where the company will provide you with sparrows and pigeons.

  • 400 Block

Almost the entire street is occupied by the Supreme Court of Louisiana. This massive, marble building would be out of place in Washington, but amidst palm trees and a humid wind - it fits in well. The building was built in 1910, abandoned in 1958. and restored in the 1990s.

On the front steps you will see a statue of Edward Douglas White - Jr., the 9th Chief Justice of the US Supreme District, known for defending the right to shorten the working day.

  • Pedestrian mall

The space between St. Louis and St. Ann streets becomes a pedestrian mall from 11:00 to 16:00. Take advantage of this window and explore all the nooks of the street.

  • Court of the Two Sisters

Treat yourself to a classic Creole brunch accompanied by jazz in the beautiful courtyard named after this restaurant. Or arrange a romantic date here in the evening.

More Remarkables

  • Royal & Orleans

Although Royal Street is easiest to describe as a quiet alternative to Bourbon Street, there is Royal & Orleans - the place behind St. Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square is one of the busiest places in the city.

  • Fifi Mahony’s

New Orleans likes to dress up - and we are not one of those who refuse a costume party. Considering that no costume is complete without a gorgeous hairstyle or wig, we confidently declare that Fifi Mahony’s vital cultural heartbeat of the city. Seriously - the staff here knows how to pick up amazing decorations or choose the perfect wig. Before the Mardi Gras carnival, this place becomes especially popular.
