THE MAIN ROOM
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 current 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 building’s 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 the city of New Orleans.
Over the years, The Howlin' Wolf has had everyone from Harry Connick Jr. to Arturo Sandoval, Jimmy Buffet, Dr. John. St Paul & The Broken Bones, Snarky Puppy, Dean Ween, The Foo Fighters, Matt & Kim, BareNaked Ladies, Allison Krauss, and Citizen Cope are just a few of the many musical luminaries that have graced our stage.
Right next door to the Howlin’ Wolf main room is The Den. The Den hosts a wide variety of events from concerts, to arts showcases, movie screenings, and comedy. Open for lunch and late night 7 days a week, the kitchen places an emphasis on local ingredients that are incorporated to find the perfect blend between authentic creole style cooking and mouth-watering bar eats. With over 100 beers in can and bottle as well as 25 beers on tap, the Den also plays favorite to many local breweries in it's beer selections with taps premiering the newest blends from Abita, NOLA Brewery, and more.
The smaller capacity venue within the Den (located on the corner of South Peters and St Joseph Street) has comfortable outdoor seating and features local and touring bands, art installations, private parties, comedy shows, and film screenings. Just a block from the Convention Center in the Warehouse District, The Den has emerged as a casual hangout for out of town visitors and locals alike, and is proud to host weekly shows such as The Grammy Nominated Hot 8 Brass Band every Sunday evening, as well as free comedy nights including “Comedy Gumbeaux” every Thursday, and “Comedy Beast” every Tuesday.
