Bud Rip's

Bar in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

One of the oldest bars in Bywater (and Bywater has a lot of old bars), Bud Rip's clientele is at the junction of the old Bywater working class crowd and the new hipster kids who are moving in around them. Drinks are strong and cheap, and DJs spin on weekends.

According to the bartenders, the edge of the floor by the bar still bears traces of a small indentation – an old urine trough used back in the days of the early 20th century, when no women were allowed here. This bar closes when it wants to.
