The building at 1032 St. Charles Ave., has a history as interesting as its current look. One of the oldest structures on Lee Circle, it was built around 1883, replacing an antebellum frame house. Its unique look comes from the various periods of architectural styles - including Greek Revival, Italianate, Second Empire and late Victorian - all joined together to create a look unlike any other.

One of its earliest uses was as the office of Dr. Elizabeth Magus Cohen, who wasn't only the first female physician in New Orleans but also the first woman licensed to practice medicine in Louisiana. After graduating from the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, Dr. Cohen came to New Orleans in 1857. Though she was faced with recurring epidemics of smallpox and typhoid and yellow fevers, she was known as one of New Orleans' leading surgeons. At the end of her 30-year career, she claimed that she never lost a patient during surgery.

  • Give five stars on energy and the crowd there. Place was packed. Local hangout with all ages. When I first walked in I wasn't sure about the decor, red with black ceiling and black trim. The wall behind bar I loved. Lights were dimmed.The group, Iguanas, were playing and they kept the crowd in it. It was hot because of the large crowd
  • Amazing, blink and you might miss it. Great people, great music, very unassuming. Love you, Wendy :-)
