Julia Street Galleries
In New Orleans, cutting-edge culture lives on Julia Street in the Warehouse District. Nearly twenty galleries can be found in the area, and most focus on contemporary art. The best galleries are Arthur Roger, LeMieux (332 Julia St.), Bienvenu (518 Julia St.), and Heriard-Cimino (440 Julia St.). The area is also filled with bars and restaurants. It’s easy to make a transition from an afternoon of contemporary art to an evening of fashionable food.
