Uptown Neighborhood History
The Uptown New Orleans Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, defines Uptown broadly: from the Mississippi River to South Claiborne and from Jackson Avenue to Broadway. Using this broad definition, Uptown would thus encompass several other historic neighborhoods, such as the Uptown and the Irish Channel. Another, more restrained delineation of Uptown’s boundaries is offered by the Greater New Orleans Community Data Center, which defines the neighborhood as bounded by Napoleon Avenue, Magazine Street, Jefferson Avenue, and LaSalle Street.
Starting with the Uptown neighborhoods closest to the Faubourg Ste. Marie, which was New Orleans’ first suburb and is now known as the Central Business District, Uptown was developed following the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, when prosperous Anglo immigrants sought to move out of the city center, thus creating a market for what were then plantation lands adjacent to the Mississippi River. As these lands were sold off and subdivided, separate upriver communities were formed that were subsequently annexed by the City. The first of these communities was the City of Lafayette, which was incorporated in 1833 and included the land that would later become known as the Uptown.
The City of New Orleans annexed Lafayette in 1853, and in 1870 the City annexed Jefferson City, which encompassed several communities further upriver, including Delachaise and Bouligny. Uptown developed rapidly as streetcar lines were installed, which enabled residents to commute to their businesses downtown.

Uptown Real Estate Market Stats
The Uptown contains one of New Orleans’ most lively thoroughfares, Frenchmen Street, which is lined with music clubs, bars, and restaurants.
Clancy’s – a classic neighborhood restaurant, Clancy’s has been serving expertly prepared Creole cuisine since 1983.
Lilette – opened by young, rising-star chef John Harris in 2000, Lillette quickly gained notice for its elegant dining room and refined French and Italian-inspired bistro fare. As the years have rolled by, Lilette has become an Uptown mainstay, while Harris continues to gain recognition for his culinary efforts.
Patois – a relative newcomer to the Uptown dining scene, Patois opened in 2007. Since then, Chef Aaron Burgau has garnered widespread acclaim for his French-influenced cuisine with a local accent.
Boucherie – Chef Nathanial Zimet’s Boucherie was born of a BBQ obsession stoked in his native North Carolina and a post-Katrina food truck experiment in New Orleans. His food truck was such a hit that Boucherie, where the focus is on cured meats and locally sourced ingredients, soon followed.
Gautreau’s – Patrick Singely, Gautreau’s proprietor, has a reputation for spotting nascent culinary talent and developing it. In fact, Food & Wine magazine has named three of Gautreau’s chefs “America’s Top Best New Chefs,” an honor granted to only one other restaurant in twenty years. Be sure to make a reservation and witness Uptown dining at its best.
St James Cheese Co. – St. James opened on Prytania Street after Hurricane Katrina and quickly made itself indispensable to cheese lovers. With an exhaustive selection of the world’s best cheeses, excellent sandwich offerings, and a solid beer and wine by the glass selection, St. James is actually more than a cheese shop: it’s a gem of Uptown casual dining.
Company Burger – If you’re a burger connoisseur, then you’ll want to check out Company Burger, part of the recent revitalization of Freret Street and a major draw for the carnivorous.
Uptown District Bars and Music Venues
Bouligny Tavern – Located next door to its proprietor’s original restaurant Lillette, Bouligny Tavern is Uptown’s wine bar par excellence, not to mention a major draw for Chef Harris’ small plates, and also a paragon of historic renovation and interior decoration.
Kingpin – considered by many to be the perfect neighborhood bar, Kingpin offers shuffleboard, craft beers, knowledgeable bartenders, and, right outside its doors, a curb next to which the city’s best food truck frequently park.
Monkey Hill – located on Magazine Street near Audubon Park, Monkey Hill offers an extensive cocktail list and bartenders who know how to make them.
Delachaise – like Bouligny Tavern, Delachaise offers small plates, an excellent wine and beer selection and an inviting, sophisticated atmosphere. What it also provides is an excellent view of St. Charles Avenue and the passing streetcar.
Oak Wine Bar – Located on an increasingly revitalized Oak St., the Oak Wine Bar offers an excellent by the glass and cocktail list, live music and delicious small plates from Chef Aaron Burgau of Patois.
St. Joe’s – situated snugly on Magazine St. across from Whole Foods, St. Joe’s is a welcoming neighborhood spot to enjoy a well prepared cocktail.
Tipitina’s – Legendary doesn’t do justice as a descriptor for Tipitina’s, which is named after a Professor Longhair song and was in fact founded as a place for him to play in the late ’70s. Since then, Tips has hosted innumerable greats and has served as a home base of sorts for such local legends as The Neville Brothers, The Radiators, and Galactic.
Le Bon Temps Rouler – an Uptown institution, Le Bon Temps offers a classic New Orleans bar in the front and a tight, shoulder to shoulder local music hall in the back. Catch The Soul Rebels here on a Thursday night for a taste of the best of New Orleans’ diverse music and cultural scene.
Maple Leaf – Just as Tipitina’s served as home base for Professor Longhair, The Leaf was the go to performing space for New Orleans’ other keyboard genius, James Booker, in the 1970s. And the club is still going strong today, particularly on Tuesday nights, when it hosts the Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band.
Uptown Bars and Music Venues
d.b.a. is one of the true gems of Frenchmen Street and a major nightlife draw with its rotating lineup of New Orleans music legends, world-class selection of beer and spirits and beautiful wood-paneled interiors.
Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro, also located on Frenchmen Street, is the spot for live jazz in New Orleans. With a line up ranging from local legends such as Ellis Marsalis, who holds court weekly, to renowned national acts, and a menu of New Orleans bistro classics, you can’t go wrong grabbing dinner and a show at Snug.
The R Bar is a popular watering hole in the Uptown Triangle that’s famous for its ten dollar haircut and a shot special on Mondays (and yes, they do have an antique barber’s chair in the bar) and its Friday crawfish boils.
The Spotted Cat is a delightfully ramshackle jazz club on Frenchmen St. where you can hear traditional jazz at its bohemian finest from such renowned local artists Meschiya Lake and the Little Big Horns, the Jazz Vipers, and the Panorama Jazz Band.
Three Muses is an intimate and well regarded Frenchmen Street restaurant and music club where you can sample sophisticated cuisine, imbibe expertly prepared cocktails and catch such local favorites as Glen David Andrews and Luke Winslow King.
Mignon Faget – New Orleans’ premier jewelry designer.
Billy Reid – Mr. Ried hails from Florence, Alabama, but he’s well respected in the more urbane environs of New Orleans, not to mention New York and Paris, for the men’s and women’s clothing line he founded in 2004.
Scriptura – Your Uptown source for all things paper and pen, when elegance counts.
Octavia Books – In the top ranks of local book shops, Octavia offers a wide selection of literary fiction and history, as well as books of all stripes by local authors.
Martin’s Wine Cellar – Recently reopened on Baronne St., Martin’s offers an impressive selection of domestic and imported wines, cheeses, liquors, and an excellent deli.
