The old Jax Beer Brewery is now home to a collection of shops and restaurants. When I was there, it appeared that a lot of the shops were unoccupied. I was disappointed at the amount of empty space available in this historic building.

This is the old JAX brewery. They have some shops that focus more on local souvenirs. It is certainly worth a visit, as it is convenient to a lot of sites in the French Quarter.

There is a lot of renovation going on at the old brewery these days, so the shops are not as extensive as they used to be, but still worth a visit. Mostly tourist stuff these days, though We missed Chico's which has moved out, but at least we got a nice refrigerator magnet.

There are not many shops, but they did have a ginormous gift shop. Another plus is that they have public bathrooms, which are limited in New Orleans.

I didn't visit the brewery which looked quite cool, but I walked thru both floors of the mall. The shops seemed to be full of tourist goods -none of which looked especially inviting. There is a small food court on the upper level with a river view which is good. The eating choices are limited. At c11am on a weekday... More

The shops are typical of a mall. Restrooms could be cleaner, best part is view of the waterfront from the second floor shops.

It was threatening rain the day we arrived in New Orleans and JAX Brewhouse proved to be a good find on the riverfront. We had a couple of drinks and struck up a very useful conversation with the bartender, who gave us some great tips for sightseeing and eating out in the city. We enjoyed pulled pork and shrimp Po'Boys... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
