Behind Pub Crawls in New Orleans: The French Quarter

Whether on a bar crawl in New Orleans or seeking the city’s haunted parts, you will pass through the French Quarter — the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans.

The French Quarter was established in 1718 by the French-Canadian explorer Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville. Throughout the 18th century, it was the center of economic, political, and social life in New Orleans.

It remains an iconic location today, with its bustling narrow streets, wrought-iron balconies, and gorgeous courtyards. Besides the party ambiance surrounding the area, the architecture is an ode to the city’s French and Spanish colonial past. Many of the buildings date back as far as the 18th and 19th centuries.
