Henry's Uptown Bar

Getting together to watch the New Orleans Saints play is a special ritual for New Orleanians, as important to us as the Jazz Fest and as essential to the character of the city and the region as Mardi Gras.

We live and die by our Saints, and our church is the Superdome. Well, it is for half the season — for the other half our beloved boys in black and gold are on the road, and we cram together in barrooms and living rooms to cheer them on… and to mourn their inconsistent ineptitude.
