Street-art murals cover the facade of juke joint Bar Redux, marked by a 1936 glowing “BAR” sign. It’s a 2014 addition to Bywater’s robust bar scene, serving traditional rummy NOLA cocktails like One Love (rum and pineapple), alongside Creole-Caribbean eats like chicken-andouille sausage gumbo and Cuban sandwiches. Inside, movie memorabilia and pop culture ephemera dot the space while outside features a partially-covered smoking patio. Live music is a fixture here, with comedy, trivia, movie nights and burlesque dances draped in live snakes making performance cameos.
