On a ramble across the Upper 9th Ward in New Orleans we stumbled upon a long-shuttered old drinkery called Dan’s Bar.

We haven’t been able to find out a whole lot about this concern, but we did discover a music listing in the October 9th 1943 edition of Billboard Magazine where Joseph Robichaux is listed as the contact for the bar which is coded/described as being a nightclub.

We believe the owner’s name may be Dan Peterson but we are not certain.
