Howlin' Wolf Night Club
Location & Contact:
The Howlin' Wolf has a long history as one of New Orleans' finest locally owned and operated venues. Named after the legendary bluesman Chester Burnett, New Orleans was introduced to the Howlin' Wolf in 1988, when it opened up in Fat City. After outgrowing its' space in a cotton warehouse, the venue relocated to what was previously the New Orleans Music Hall, in the Warehouse District.
The new location's exterior is a mural masterpiece created by renowned artist Michalopoulos. The Mural is a recreation of New Orleans neighborhood scenes that tell the story of the undeniable music history, from its' Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, to a second line with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Not to be out done by the buildings exterior the interior is every bit as dynamic. The bar is as unique as you will find anywhere, made from hand carved mahogany; it was taken from Al Capone's hotel The Lexington during demolition in the 80's. The detail on this piece is extraordinary, down to the Fleur De Lis that adorn its' face. In another nod to preserve New Orleans history, the black theatre curtains that line the inner walls were salvaged from the Orpheum Theatre prior to being gutted. The Classic shotgun houses that flank the stage are a perfect contribution to the continuing theme of New Orleans.
Over the years, The Howlin' Wolf has had everyone from Harry Connick Jr. to Arturo Sandoval, the Foo Fighters, Bare Naked Ladies, Dr. John, Allison Krauss, Jimmy Page, and Jimmy Buffet are just a few of the musical Luminaries that have graced our stage.
