Saint Claude Avenue

St. Claude Avenue emerges as bohemian arts sphere

Rebecca Todd

The St. Claude Corridor has quickly emerged as an alternative street scene filled with equal parts ambition and alternative living. Rooted in the city's Post-Katrina influx of artists and new residents, this emerging avenue, known as Good Children until 1850, hugs the "New Marigny" and Bywater into the Ninth Ward. In recent years, an exploding number of pubs, theaters and restaurants have joined institutions like Saturn Bar to create a dining and entertainment destination. An offshoot of North Rampart just upriver from Esplanade on the border of the French Quarter, St. Claude crosses the Industrial Canal, traversing the Holy Cross neighborhood into the town of Arabi in St. Bernard Parish. But in the less than three miles St. Claude Avenue reaches from Esplanade to the Industrial Canal, you’ll find an approachable neighborhood chock full of action.The corridor is home to the beautifully restored St. Roch Market food hall, affordable local restaurants like Sugar Park, The Sneaky Pickle and Red’s Chinese and artful little galleries and performance spaces.
