The Club Ms. Mae’s

This classic Uptown dive received a new wave of attention when New Orleans’ Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan (and his flowing locks of hair) made a pilgrimage to the bar after a Saints win to buy a round for everyone. Cavernous, dark and sticky, Ms. Mae’s—open 24-hours—is cash-only and the kind of place where drinks are simple and cheap. (Seriously, don’t ask for a cocktail.)
