R Bar straddles the line between being a dive and party bar. Weekend evenings and Mardi Gras season easily and often become madhouses, with a mix of locals, service industry types, and drunk tourists stumbling in from the Quarter. Weeknights and afternoons, however, are another story entirely, when R Bar takes on its original divey feel with a pool table frequented by neighborhood sharks, and a killer jukebox in the back. The bar also plays some of the best b-horror movies on a projector, so it’s easy to post up and lose track of time laughing at the absurd schlock on the screen. There’s also the famed Royal Street Inn upstairs -- thus making it perhaps the only bed and breakfast dive in town.
