Best new retail store
1. Swoon (130 Harrison Ave., 504-516-2770; https://www.facebook.com/swoonneworleans)
Once a boutique desert, Lakeview has in recent years become a boutique destination, with retailers like Swoon leading the charge. After only four months in business, this locally owned boutique beat out national chains to secure the coveted No. 1 spot. The bright, airy space features brands like Zoa, Wilt Apparel and Seven For All Mankind, as well as accessories by local designers including Brantley Cecilia. Though the prices fit a college student's budget, Swoon's appeal spans generations: Mothers and daughters often shop together.

3. Kendra Scott (5757 Magazine St., 504- 613-4227; www.kendrascott.com)

Best Costume Store
1. Uptown Costume & Dancewear (4326 Magazine St., 504-895-7969; www.uptowncostume.com)
It's no surprise Uptown Costume tops the list, but the store's current selection is unexpected, with some new (and hilarious) Pikachu and Pokemon costumes arriving soon. No matter who wins the presidential election in November, winning a costume contest will be a cinch with the store's abundant selection of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton costumes and masks ... just in time for Halloween.

Best hotel
1. Hotel Monteleone (214 Royal St., 504-523-3341; www.hotelmonteleone.com)
At the entrance to the Hotel Monteleone, a uniformed doorman will open the door for you, a welcome that signals the gravitas and glamour of this old-world property. From a rooftop pool overlooking CBD skyscrapers to the warm, golden glow of the iconic Carousel Bar, everything about the hotel embodies grandeur and a too-rare admiration for history. In the bar, generations of New Orleanians and their out-of-town guests have made slow revolutions around a cadre of bartenders serving the city's classic cocktails. If you close your eyes, you can almost see them mixing those same Sazeracs and Vieux Carres for the hotel's literary guests (Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner and Tennessee Williams) of decades past. (Truman Capote used to boast he was born there; he wasn't.)
   It isn't all old news at the hotel — in particular, its restaurant has been through changes and updates in recent years, becoming the Creole-inspired Criollo in its latest iteration — and the Carousel Bar was expanded as part of a renovation a few years back. But these changes feel like natural extensions of the 19th-century building, and the hotel remains one of the best places to raise a glass to New Orleans as it was.

Best locally owned bridal shop
Southern Bridal (1200 W. Causeway Approach, Suite 9, Mandeville, 985-727-2993; www.southernbridal.net)
Southern Bridal is a bit of a misnomer. It's not that the boutique doesn't have racks and racks of diaphanous white designer bridal gowns — it's just that gowns are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the gown, tuxedo and accessory destination's inventory. Southern Bridal can outfit every single person at the wedding, from the flower girl and ring bearer to the guests, groomsmen, mother of the bride and others. There also are frequent sales during which bridal gowns are priced as low as $199 and there's a $25 sale rack — practically unheard of in the wedding industry.

Best locally owned music store
1. Peaches Records (4318 Magazine St., 504-282-3322; www.peachesrecordsandtapes.com)
I remember biking to Peaches about 20 years ago to buy my first cassette tape (Whitney Houston) when the store was still on Gentilly Boulevard. The showroom was so small I think it was cooled by a single window air-conditioning unit and was practically bursting at the seams with new and used tapes and vinyl, as well as band posters documenting many genres of music (Vanilla Ice was on the wall too, although I doubt anyone will admit to that). Peaches has grown since then and it's new store Uptown has 15,000 square feet of space to display CDs, swag emblazoned with Peaches' distinctive logo and even more cool-again vinyl. The new location once was a Woolworths with a 1940s lunch counter, and Peaches is trying to raise enough money to buy the lunch counter and reopen it. The store also plans to host live music.

Pure Barre has amassed a cult-like following — if you're not yet among the devotees, here are a few things to expect at your first class. Thing one: you'll spend 55 minutes moving your "seat" (barre-talk for bottom) a fraction of an inch at a time, until lactic acid strangles your glutes into a quivering mass of defeated muscle fibers. Thing two: Participants wear leggings — even when it's hot outside — and these weird, grippy socks. Thing three: Even though it's so tempting to hate barre classes for the aforementioned reasons, you do so at your own detriment—because they actually work. The website promises longer, leaner muscles "in just 10 classes" and classes deliver results, spawning the lean-bodied, flexible corps that catapulted Pure Barre into first place.
