Best Dive Bar in New Orleans

by Rachel Baker on September 9, 2013

If you are in the New Orleans area and looking for the best place to relax, look no further.

Your reward is a small, dark room — lit by only Christmas-tree lights — with a few scattered tables and a narrow bar extending into the red and green glowing depths of what you’d swear is little more than an old shack.

This is a dive bar — the casualness in which it presents it’s condition attests to that fact — but there’s something about Snake and Jake’s Christmas Club Lounge that elevates it above other, grungier joints in the city. It’s the reason Bourdain drank here. It’s the reason Clooney drank here too.
