#2480 - R Bar, New Orleans - 3/22/2014

R Bar, New Orleans, LA
The R Bar is the beverage part of the Royal Street Inn "bed and beverage." If you stay in one of the inn's five rooms here you will receive some free drink tokens for the lively bar on the ground floor (although it appears the Bukowski Suite no longer exists?). The B&B is part owned by Greg Dulli, who started to grow fond of it when he and the rest of the Afghan Whigs spent considerable time here during the recording of their album "1965" in 1998, and it played a significant part in the revival of Frenchmen Street.

R Bar, New Orleans, LA
The bar has a pleasantly dark and intimate interior, and much of it resembles a fairly typical neighborhood dive except that it is so lively in the evenings. There are lots of chaotically collected artifacts, without being too kitschy, and various weekly events. On Mondays you can get a $10 haircut with a free shot. On Fridays there is a crawfish boil. On other days there are pig roasts and Paint Along With Bob Ross nights. The crowd is fun and it's yet another bar in this city that could be your absolute favorite in virtually any other town.
