Category Archives: Magazine Street

Outside of the French Quarter no street in New Orleans beats Magazine Street, for shopping, dining or just casual strolling. Magazine Street is six-mile-long stretch through the Garden District and Uptown featuring some of the best antique stores, art galleries, craft shops and classy boutiques to be found anywhere in the New Orleans.

Named for a “magazin,” a warehouse that was built in the late 1700s to house products awaiting export. Today Magazine Street features eclectic architecture from the large columned Greek Revival style of the mid-19th century to the colorful Victorian cottages trimmed in quirky gingerbread millwork. This vibrant street spanks the visitor with its energy.

For generations, Magazine Street has been a mecca for bohemians and the well-heeled alike. Specialty and chain coffee shops offer Internet hookups for laptops and outdoor tables for those who prefer a more amiable atmosphere for casual and business conversations. Magazine Street restaurants featuring a wide variety of cuisines are open long hours along this stretch, as are a number of nightclubs offering a wide variety of live musical genres.

But it is the antiques and artwork that draw aficionados to Magazine Street. Whatever it is you’re looking for in home décor – fine China, exquisite handcrafted items, used and new books, imported rugs, jewelry, ornate furniture, silver utensils and other tableware, crystal chandeliers and other 19th and early 20th century home furnishings – there’s an excellent chance you will find it on Magazine Street. A wide selection of galleries are open for business, offering paintings, sculptures and other artistic media that rank on a par with galleries found in other American cities.
