Uptown is a great place to live if you like festivals and enjoy walking to your favorite restaurant! Uptown has many fantastic streets with many different types of food and shopping. Three streets that are particularly good are Magazine Street, Oak Street and most recently on the radar is Freret Street.
Freret has really grown in the past few years and had improved the property values in the surrounding area. You will see a lot of renovation and new builds surrounding this area. A few great restaurants and bars on Freret Street would be High Hat, Wayfare, Mint Bistro, and the Publiq House Bar (which offers live music through the week.) There are also monthly fairs every first Sunday of the month with music, crafts, and food!
