New Bordeaux is a city on the Gulf Coast of the United States that serves as the setting for Mafia III. It is known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene, and spicy, singular cuisine. With ten districts featuring a mixture of ethnicities, the city is a true melting pot of French, Irish, Italian, Haitian, Cuban, African, and American cultures.


New Bordeaux's status as a major port for the Southeast United States has made it one of the most important waypoints for smuggling between the U.S., the Caribbean, and Latin America. Pirates, bootleggers, and smaller crime rackets have tried to hold on to the city's ports and its rackets, but Sal Marcano was the first to gain total control after his 1934 takeover.


It is a vast and diverse city ruled by the mob and corrupt officials with the richly detailed sights, sounds, and emotionally-charged social atmosphere of the late sixties era. It is loosely based on New Orleans, Louisiana with an added bayou complete with alligators and superstitions. Like most cities of the era it includes both wealthy and poor neighborhoods, a large industrial presence, and shipping ports that take advantage of its coastal location.

  • According to the Mafia III promotional map, the city was founded in 1718.
  • The Bourbon City Blinder is the city's signature drink.
  • New Bordeaux apparently shares the same series of zip codes used in the real New Orleans, as seen on a postcard shown in the leaving New Bordeaux ending.
