Frenchmen's Apple Barrel To Close Nov. 1
Iconic Frenchmen Street jazz & blues club, the Apple Barrel will play its last tune on November 1. Staff and sources have told NOLA Defender that the institution will close its doors on All Saints Day, after a lease renewal was refused.
The club has been an institution on Frenchmen St. since the mid-seventies. Owners Liz Montoya and Douglas Hopper have been running the hole-in-the wall blues club for over 20 years, and have seen the block transform around them.
The blues programmed on their small stage represented an oft neglected part of the city's music tradition, and the locals who congregated on the bench in front represented the city itself. Generations of musicians came up in the small room, most notably the late Coco Robicheaux.
Robicheaux suffered a fatal heart attack inside of Apple Barrel, and he later died at a local hospital. The gravelly voiced Cajun musician was a regular at the bar, and some accounts of his death include him uttering the words "I'm home" before he passed.
NoDef reached out to Montoya for comment, and the co-owner said that she would comment at a later date. NoDef called Adolfo's, the Italian restaurant upstairs (611 Frenchmen St.), and an employee said they will remain open.
