Explore the Irish Channel. Originally known as the home of the working class that worked at the city’s ports and breweries, today it’s a mainly residential neighborhood that once again has a vibrant brewery scene.
Visit the Opera Guild Home, a historic house in the beautiful Garden District, built in 1859. You’ll learn about its previous owners' history. Now owned by the New Orleans Opera Women’s Guild, the house has found a new life by providing a home for the supporters of opera, and also as a location for feature films such as Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained.
