Last Call for Johnny White's Sports Bar This Weekend
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
FRENCH QUARTER - Tomorrow, June 30, Johnny White’s Sports Bar is closing its doors after over 20 years of serving as the only neighborhood bar on Bourbon Street, as well as an occasional home for some of its most loyal patrons. Although the owners of the building will reopen the bar after it undergoes renovations, those who frequented the local watering hole are mourning the loss of Johnny White’s as they know it. Most describe the 720 Bourbon Street dive as the bar that never closes, even for Katrina.
Bourbon Street Dive Johnny White's to Close at End of June
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
It’s hard to find a local on Bourbon St., at least one that isn’t on the job. The majority of the time, natives leave the hand grenades, t-shirt shops, and strip clubs for the tourists. But one corner watering hole bar sets itself apart as “the bar that never closes,” and NoDef is sad to report that Johnny White’s Sports Bar is losing that title after 22 years in its current location. On June 30, the bar will shut its doors. There may even be a lock involved.

The Hangar Raided
Another New Orleans bar was raided by police and state alcohol control agents last night. This time, it was The Hangar (1511 S. Rendon), a Gert Town bar that is mainly known for shows featuring rock and metal acts. On Saturday night, state agents entered for an inspection and ended up handing out a bevy of summons for underage drinking, fighting in the presence of police, for a total of 15 summons, according to New Orleans police. It wasn't immediately clear if a show was going on at the time of the "inspection." Click through to see all the summons issued.
Jackie Clarkson Wants Underagers Out of Bars
Here in the Bayou State, you have to be 21 to drink, but you can get into the bar at the same time you can get into a voting booth. Well, City Councilwoman Jackie Clarkson got wind of this, and despite all the concerts and bar games that don't require she doesn't like it one bit. On Thursday, she's bringing an ordinance before City Council that would make it illegal to go into a watering hole before you're old enough to water. WWL-TV has the story.

FRENCH QUARTER - Quarter rats and downtown y’ats may know that the Hotel Monteleone's famous Carousel Bar quietly reopened for business after an extensive renovation. However, the gentle murmur became a paradegoer’s shout yesterday when the historic venue “officially” reopened. the Monteleone has done an excellent job making the place feel as if it were new, but new in 1950.
