Lonely Planet review

In the solar system of New Orleans’ bars, Saturn is planet punk and yet much more. Originally, it was simply an eclectic neighborhood bar where a working-class crew of regulars appreciated, in an un-ironic way, the outsider art and leopard- skin furniture. Then the hipsters started moving in. Today the Bywater community, punk scene and hipster enclaves live together in peace and camaraderie, united by neon lighting, flashy gambling machines and great live music.
