This gutted brick cottage claims to be the oldest operating bar in the country and is certainly one of the most atmospheric in the Quarter. Rumors suggest this spot was once the workshop of pirate Jean Lafitte and his brother Pierre. Whether true or not (historical records suggest ‘not’), the house dates to the 18th century.
