Sometimes called the "St. Claude Cultural District," this busy avenue stretches from the Marigny to Bywater, and is in various stages of rebuilding and gentrification. On the Marigny end, you'll find clubs like The AllWays Lounge, Hi-Ho Lounge and Siberia that feature live music and performance, while small restaurants, galleries and secondhand shops dot every other block or so. The New Orleans Healing Center is a large communal space with shops, a food co-op and another concert/theater space (Cafe Istanbul).
The old St. Roch seafood market now is home to an eclectic array of food stalls.
The New Movement Theater presents stand-up, sketch and improv comedy nightly.
At Red's Chinese, try the kung pao pastrami.
