The Central Business District was once a ghost town after work, but not anymore! Today, the neighborhood has become a destination location for those who like trendy restaurants, concerts, bars and theaters. The New Orleans CBD offers top notch urban living for less costs than other urban centers. Evenings now bring crowds to historic Lafayette Square for free concerts, and numerous other restaurants, bars and theaters come to life after dark. The restaurants Willa Jean, St. James Cheese Co. and The Ruby Slipper draw hungry locals and tourists.
