If you haven’t experienced Faubourg Marigny, you’re in for a treat. This is the fastest growing spot to experience the best food, drink and fun in New Orleans. And Elysian Fields Inn is right in the heart of it.
Elysian Fields Avenue, named for the Champs-Élysées in Paris, is the main street of Faubourg Marigny, or what the locals call “The Marigny”. It was the first street in New Orleans to connect the Mississippi River to Lake Pontchartrain, and according to ancient Greek mythology, Elysian Fields is where the Gods go to play in their afterlife.
The Marigny is heaven on earth for architectural buffs, music lovers, and foodies. Just a short block from Elysian Fields Inn is festive and historic Frenchmen Street, home of over 60 fabulous restaurants and bars, and a delightful local artists’ market. Enjoy delicious local creole cuisine, quaint bohemian shopping, and live music every day of the week.
The famous French Quarter is just five short blocks up river as the locals say, or southwest to be clear. When you decide to venture out of the Marigny to experience the legendary sights, sounds and tastes of the French Quarter, Elysian Fields Inn is your perfect launch pad.
