About the book
New Orleans has a big reputation. Known for the partying on raucous Bourbon Street, the lavish parades of Mardis Gras and as a haunted city chock full of ghosts. Though the Big Easy has that reputation for a reason, it’s much more than nightlife and voodoo – a decade after Hurricane Katrina, the city has survived and thrived, and is now a vibrant city of musicians, artists, artisans and chefs that honor New Orleans’ history while also innovating and creating. We’ve curated the most exciting spots this city has to offer from costume shops to outdoor oases, the most creative cocktail bars far from the tourists on Bourbon Street and the live music venues that can’t be missed.
This beautiful little guide fits snugly in the back pocket of your jeans, or neatly in your favorite clutch, and is packed with the inside scoop on old-school favorites, offbeat gems and hip newcomers to New Orleans.
The HUNT is a tightly curated travel guide series that focuses on the most unique eating and shopping destinations, as well as memorable lifestyle experiences and activities in each city. The HUNT editors are always residents who know their home turf inside out. We don’t list everything and the kitchen sink – who has time to sift through all that? Instead, we carefully select around 100 venues that are truly worth visiting. The places we support are the ones that add soul and character to their neighborhoods, making the city truly vibrant.
