What’s in store: Treasure Tattoo

If passersby don't look carefully, they might miss Treasure Tattoo (2350 St. Claude Ave., 504-344-7989; www.facebook.com/treasuretattoonola), a vibrant little tattoo shop nestled on St. Claude Avenue.   "We got lucky," owner Jamie Ruth says.

Canal Furniture Liquidators

At Canal Furniture Liquidators (3534 Toulouse Street, 504-482-6851; www.canalfurnitureliquidators.com), customers can spend hours in the large warehouse store browsing everything from exercise machines to designer rugs. The majority of its furniture comes from area hotels.

Breaux Mart

At Breaux Mart (citywide; www.breauxmart.com), hundreds of locally sourced products, including craft beer, coffee, jams and jellies line the shelves. All five Breaux Mart stores offer grocery staples, meats and produce, and each location is specific to its neighborhood.

Hi-Brow Beauty Bar

Hi-Brow Beauty Bar (126 Sierra Court, Metairie, 504-325-2222; www.hibrownola.com) is located in an unassuming house on a quiet street. Inside, the atmosphere is soothing, with music, scented candles and conversation.

Blue Frog Chocolates

Nestled inside a nearly 100-year-old cottage, Blue Frog Chocolates (5707 Magazine St., 504-269-5707; www.bluefrogchocolates.com) brims with sweet treats. Shiny packages of chocolates and candies cover the tables and a glass display case reveals an assortment of gourmet truffles.

Bywater Clothing

Stocked with screen- printed bamboo T-shirts, locally made soap and art depicting shotgun houses, it's clear that Bywater Clothing (4432 Magazine St., 504-502-6206; www.bywaterclothing.com) is an homage to New Orleans. What's less obvious is why the Magazine Street boutique is named for a downtown neighborhood.

Aloft New Orleans Downtown

Aloft New Orleans Downtown (225 Baronne St., 504-581-9225; www.aloftneworleansdowntown.com) curates a live music series featuring local bands including Renshaw Davies, Dana Abbott, Alexis and the Samurai and Andrew Duhon.   "You never know who you'll find here," says New Orleans sales manager Maureen Greany.

Cadillac of New Orleans

Joey Hogh, general manager of Cadillac of New Orleans (3100 Lime St., Metairie, 504-885-3000; www.neworleanscadillac.com), says his dealership's brand is on a journey. Long a part of the American vernacular as shorthand for quality and class, Cadillac is coming into its own as a top-of-the-line contemporary automobile, he says.

Lakeview Brew

Regular customers at Lakeview Brew (5606 Canal Blvd., 504-483-7001; www.lakeviewbrew.com) might be surprised to learn the cafe's owner doesn't drink much coffee. But Randie Porobil didn't open the coffee shop and restaurant in January 2008 because she had a passion for lattes.

Rantz Law Firm

Eddie Rantz Jr. is the sole attorney at Rantz Law Firm (110 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Suite 205A, Metairie, 504-684-2165), which means he does everything from filing lawsuits to filling the copier. "The biggest challenge is adjusting to handling every aspect of the business," he says.

Daisy Dukes

First a fictional character and later an iconic shorts style, the name Daisy Duke rings familiar even for those who have never set foot in the 24-hour breakfast spot Daisy Dukes (121 Chartres St., 504-561-5171; 123 Carondelet St., 504-522-2233; 5209 W. Napoleon Ave., Metairie, 504-883-5513; www.daisydukesrestaurant.com). For his restaurant concept, owner and founder Robert Kagan wanted a Southern name no one would forget.
