New Orleans

Saturn Bar


3067 St. Claude Ave.,
New Orleans,
United States,

This idiosyncratic bar may have lost its iconic jukebox to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but not any of its packrat personality. Founded in 1960, there’s more than a half-century’s worth of memorabilia, original artwork and neon signs plastered over its eclectic walls—including several pieces by acclaimed New Orleans folk artist Michael Frolich. The Saturn Bar (pronounced Sa-Turn) attracts a clientele not too particular about the nuances of a cocktail. Here, it’s a beer and a shot that wins friends.
