After countless childhood visits and several on-location film shoots, actor Channing Tatum, along with long-time friend and business partner Keith Kurtz, fell in love with the Big Easy’s laissez les bon temps rouler attitude and colorful history in a big way. Styled after the famous red-light district bordellos and burlesque halls of New Orleans’ Storyville era, Saints & Sinners is Tatum’s tribute to the city’s ribald, good-time reputation. According to the designer of the new restaurant/bar, Saints & Sinners will be fully decked out in contemporary bordello-chic décor. Think: Victorian furnishings, red velvet drapes trimmed in gold, and red faux snakeskin covering the bar/restaurant walls and ceiling.
By day, Saints & Sinners will operate as a restaurant classic Cajun and Creole menu, including famous dishes like oysters Rockefeller and jambalaya (dishes are also named for notorious New Orleans madams and dance hall girls). Upon opening, Saints & Sinners will be the only venue on Bourbon Street offering outdoor, street-level patio dining. By night, the restaurant will transform into a music venue and nightclub with a VIP lounge – a new hotspot on Bourbon Street for catching a game on one of the bar’s flat-screen TVs or partying on the city’s most famous street …‘til.
Like many before him, actor Channing Tatum fell for the Big Easy in a big way. Saints & Sinners is the star’s new restaurant/bar tribute to the city’s famous Storyville red-light district on Bourbon Street.
