La Dauphine – New Orleans Gay Owned Bed & Breakfast

 La Dauphine New Orleans Gay Bed and Breakfast

You might have heard people say that New Orleans is like San Francisco, Savannah, Charleston, Paris, or Marseilles. It’s not. The biggest difference is that the streets are exploding with live music all year round. You’ve never seen such “street theater.” Our most cherished visitors come for our food, music, architecture, history, artists, and writers. The ambiance is most like the French Caribbean.

We live in the old French area, much like my Creole ancestors did, coming from France and Spain in 1715 and 1793, respectively. My mother and father grew up speaking French just a few houses away from us. Our district, Faubourg Marigny, is a quieter version of the adjacent French Quarter-the main difference being that you can actually sleep at night here. It’s the safe, artist/gay residential area with about 70 bed and breakfasts. The city attracts one million visitors each month, so accommodations fill up quickly.

Within a couple minutes walk of our front door, you have access to restaurants such as Marigny Brasserie, Belle Forche’, Cafe Negril, Feelings, Santa Fe, Marisol, La Peniche, Mona’s, Wasabi, Adolfo’s, Santa Fe, and bars such as Spotted Cat, Cafe Brasil, d.b.a., Checkpoint Charlie’s, Phoenix–not to mention an over abundance of galleries and antique shops. There’s a Cuban grocery store right across the street. Jackson Square is a mere 20-minute stroll through the adjacent French Quarter.
