Magazine Street is our address—downriver of its meandering six mile stretch along the Mississippi. It is our home and maybe we take it for granted; its diverse delights, however, captivate millions of visitors a year. It almost never feels crowded though, wending its way through several New Orleans neighborhoods, demarcated by avenues. Everything is sold here from New Orleans inspired artisan jewelry and NOLA pride clothing to silver, antiques and bespoke suits and hats. Not far from the Inn is a gentleman’s grooming emporium where your fella can get a real shave and not your average department store products.
Canal Place & River Walk Outlets
A different feel altogether is Canal Place where national and international stores are housed in a mall on Canal Street. Downriver apiece are the only outlet stores in New Orleans, featuring recognizable names and brands.
French Quarter/Marigny Triangle
The Quarter has many charms and offerings, shopping among them. Apart from the world of delights at the oldest market in the United States, you’ll find antiques on Royal Street and a Depression-era perfume shop; there’s a hat maker and cigars to be had, paintings to be savored and no fewer than four indie book shops.
Dividing the lower Quarter from the Faubourg Marigny is Esplanade Avenue. Just a few steps from Esplanade Avenue, on Frenchmen Street is the internationally beloved Louisiana Music Factory. It made sense to move to one of the densest music streets in the city.
