Best Bar Neon




With the departure of Big Daddy's, UniSEXXX's neon rules Bourbon Street with its groovy '70s font promising "World Famous LOVE ACTS."


Old-school, dignified neon that beckons you in and adds beaucoup atmosphere to a Decatur Street walk on a foggy night.

Saturn Bar

The anachronistic Atomic Age trim on this ramshackle St. Claude Avenue tavern draws hipsters like moths to a neon flame.

Sandpiper Lounge

This gorgeous mirage on Louisiana Avenue features a 1940s font, an illuminated martini and a speedy arrow pointing to the door.

Lamplighter Lounge

Turquoise '50s-style script and darkened windows make this a place where Mad Men's Don Draper would take his mistress — if Draper lived in Metairie.

It's hard to miss the oversized marquee of the Sandpiper Lounge. - PHOTO BY GARY LOVERDE
