Certain neighborhoods in New Orleans sometimes feel as if they never sleep. This can be particularly true if you walk down Bourbon Street on a Friday or Saturday night in the summertime. You’ll see people crowded into jazz bars and people walking up and down the street, and you’ll hear people behind walled terraces eating, drinking, and laughing.
Talk with the innkeepers of your New Orleans Bed and Breakfast, and be sure you know where you can safely walk at night and areas it’s best to avoid. Then put on your walking shoes and go. A nighttime stroll is a great way to get a feel for a city that is unlike any other on the continent.
Such an activity is bound to stimulate the appetite; fortunately, New Orleans is a city that knows how to feed its people no matter the hour. Read on for a few suggestions of where to find late night eats in New Orleans:
- Bouligny Tavern on Magazine Street. Late night snacks are reasonably priced, varied, and delicious.
- Delchaise on St. Charles Ave. A great spot to find an award winning glass of wine or an unforgettable cup of coffee.
- Arnauds on Rue Bienville. Patrons may enjoy dinner in the Jazz Bistro until 10:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. This may not be late by New Orleans standards, but for some guests of New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts, it is plenty late indeed.
The innkeepers of your Bed and Breakfast New Orleans may be able to suggest a great spot for a night cap close to the inn. Don’t hesitate to ask.
