... blues/jazz clubs, strip clubs. Street art and generally all other late night attractions.We went to a club called the swamp which plays regular house music until the early hours and bar hopped between great clubs, then got a shrimp po boy sandwich and headed home. It is a very very fun street, but it didn't satisfy my need for authentic blues/jazz clubs and the true New Orleans experience.
Earlier on in the day, Gus and I were walking the streets and ...
... when we were walking down the street we saw another shoe shiner get arrested by police. After a quick look around Jackson Square we headed back to the hotel to freshen up before heading out to dinner.
We hadn't had any southern fried chicken which is famous in Louisiana so we decided on a restaurant and headed out for our chicken. We ended up at Coops place, which didnt look all that flash but the chicken had been given a good review on tripadvisor. We all ...
... of the cruise is to give you just about long enough on land to get out and spend whatever money you have on souveniers that say you have visited a place, when really all you've seen is the souvenier shops! Still tho, nice to get a glimpse. As we're kinda on a budget we didn't do much shopping, but did splash out on three sets of rosary beads to protect us for our travels through south america. We've heard that you're less likely to be robbed if you're prominantly ...
... only 2 blocks from the French Quarter and it had fantastic (and clean) facilities. It was a little disconcerting to see that the entire place was surrounded by high brick walls- topped with some vicious looking barbed wire. It was also interesting to hear that the place had a guard on duty every night so that it was staffed 24/7.

TravelPod Member ReviewsJoe & Flo's Candlelight Hostel New Orleans
Really felt like I was just living in Joe and Flo's home.
It is about 15 minutes from Bourbon Street and the rest of the action in a quiet part of town. Close to a couple of really great places to eat (Lil Dizzy's and Cajun Seafoods). Across the highway at night is a little sketchy but no real issues. The rooms are generously sized and comfortably air conditioned. Small common areas and quite a small population of stayers meant the place was nice and quiet. Though they do have 24 hour access and always someone a phonecall away for the night owls. Staff were super friendly and helpful in organising tours and suggesting places to hang out.
Would definitely recommend, gives you a little escape from the hoopla of Bourbon without being isolated.
