I have a friend asking me what was on the corner of Poydras & Claiborne in the 40's & 50's? It was a bar & she said the lake downtown corner.... Anyone know the name?

I remember a bar and restaurant on that corner, but the name escapes me. When I first went on the NOPD I worked in The Auto Theft Bureau which was under the Claiborne Overpass and right across the street from that place. It was great to be able to sneak over there and have a few beers and a sammich.

Looked in the 1965 Yellow Pages with no success. But I did find some interesting names:

Boom Boom Room -- 6233 S. Claiborne
Golliwog Lounge -- 119 S. Claiborne at Canal ("Meet the Golliwog Girls").
The Out House at 6233

And I found Lou & Bob's on Nursery.

Also re: Magazine St., there was an Ell Bar at 4336 Magazine BUT in the 4500 block was Silver Slipper Lounge at 4520.

And that's all she wrote.

Thanks Lake & Cop

My friend just told me she was looking for the odd number addresses on Magazine in the blocks mentioned. I appreciate your research! She's going to write to Julia Street & Poydras the parrot if she can't find her answer.

I remember

the Boom Boom Room on Claiborne. I thought the name was hilarious when I was a kid. Also, we used to go to the Elbow Room on Tulane when I was in college.

Apparently there was a White Kitchen...

...at Poydras and Claiborne.

Yay!

I never knew that! I took a ride past there on the way home from lunch today and the building is basically the same, except they closed off the corner entry and plastered over it and the oval windows that used to face both Claiborne and Poydras Streets. The place looks like a warehouse now. When we used to sneak over there at night to drink beer while we we were working across the street it wasn't a White Kitchen.....this was in early 1964.

Hey, news to me, too.

Only one I remember was the one in Slidell, too.

That's where we'd stop when we'd all get carsick on the way to my uncle's weekend home in Clermont Harbor (ain't dere no mooah since Hurricane Betsy in '65).

Me and Buffy took a ride thru there a while ago and it's sad to see all that devastation.
