MAGAZINE STREET IS A PREMIER SHOPPING DESTINATION IN NEW ORLEANS’ UPTOWN NEIGHBORHOOD FULL OF RESTAURANTS, LOCAL ART, AND BOUTIQUES

Since the 1800s, Magazine Street has been the ultimate shopping destination in New Orleans. Although named for the French phrase “rue de magasins,” or shopping street, there was no master plan for the future shopaholic hub. Residential and commercial buildings began to spring up throughout the years, creating one of the country’s most eclectic boutique shopping and dining experiences.

Boutique, Clothing, and Accessory Stores to Shop

Every local knows the first spot to shop for boutique clothing is Magazine Street. Curated collections of clothing, shoes, and accessories are plentiful. Local favorites Mignon Faget, Trashy Diva, and Monomin never fail to invite shoppers in with shiny new inventory. The street also hosts vintage and secondhand shops, including Buffalo Exchange, Century Girl, and Funky Monkey.

Local Artwork and Crafters

The Crescent City’s support for local makers is part of what keeps its culture so eccentric. Magazine Street has shops that put local artists, jewelers, and makers on display for the world to admire. Artwork fills the walls of nearly every store on the strip, but a few build their inventory exclusively around local crafters. At Miette, Slow Down, and the Good Shop, people will find an array of locally hand-made paintings, greeting cards, stickers, and clothing. Some offerings even have a Louisiana twist that is impossible to replicate outside the city.

Drinking and Dining on Magazine Street

After popping in and out of dainty boutiques, happy hour with a glass of champagne makes a great New Orleans-style break. Within the six-mile stretch of Magazine Street, numerous restaurants and bars await shoppers. Each block hosts a handful of spots where people can indulge in spirits or full-course meals. Some popular places include Gris-Gris, the Bulldog, Dat Dog, and the Vintage.
