Johnny's Tavern

Johnny's Tavern is a pub in the center of New Orleans. It's located in a part of town called the Marigny, and its windows are all decorated with signs that read "The Old Blue House"or "The Old Red Rooster." This isn't really much of a bar, more of a tavern, though that doesn't really matter. Johnny's description It serves food and has drinks like beer, red and white wine, and even a few cocktails. It's all for sale by the drink in order to support the business. The building itself is a historic landmark. Its history dates back to the early nineteenth century when it served as a place to entertain French nationals. It was then turned into a saloon. In 1875, it was purchased by a man who was also a lawyer and opened the tavern as a general store. After that, it was re-named Johnny's Tavern and it eventually became a bar. When the Civil War ended, it was renamed the Hotel des Esquimaux in honor of a friend of the owner who died fighting for the Union. It still stands today, and it's in the same location as it was in its early days, and in the same building where the old saloon once stood. It also still serves the same types of food and has the same drinks as it did before it became Johnny's Tavern.

MLK's Sign
