Where to Go: St. Claude Avenue (2016)


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).
