The Pythian

Central Business District, New Orleans

Welcome to The Pythian, where the rich history of New Orleans’ music scene is infused from foundation to rooftop. Rumored to be the first venue where a young Louis Armstrong performed publicly, every floor of this unique building is named after a famous musician. You’ll quickly memorize them all as you make your way from the marketplace filled with an array of vendors on the ground floor to your private apartment. Inside, rich eclectic styling, arched windows with an abundance of natural light, and Chromecast streaming make for spaces that balance aesthetic, function, and comfort. Start the day with a quick workout in our fitness room. It’s cozy but has all the essentials to get your blood pumping. Afterward, head outside to find yourself in the perfect location to start your exploration of the city. Canal Street is a couple of blocks away, with the heart of the French Quarter just a mile to the east. The tram system makes it easy to meander and down streets filled with jazz clubs, museums, and all the Southern dining you could hope for. Whether you make your way back tonight or while the sun is breaking tomorrow morning, rest easy knowing that The Pythian is waiting to welcome you with open arms.

The neighborhood

Central Business District

Anchored by restored theaters and new arenas, like the Orpheum and Caesars Superdome, each street of the Central Business District promises unforgettable experiences with glittery lights and spectacular libations. Once referred to as the “downtown” of New Orleans, this historic city center now balances 19th-century architecture with sleek new high rises, housing an array of new restaurants and retail stores. After shopping along Canal Street or in the South Market District, savor the delectable Southern eateries found on each street corner, featuring Cajun-Creole favorites and mouthwatering seafood delicacies. As the sun begins to set over the Bayou, grab a cocktail and enjoy the live jazz and blues spilling from the doorways of some of New Orleans' most popular bars and nightclubs.
