Have a seat and kick back on the( temporary) final resting place of one of New Orleans most famous bar owners, all in the comfort of the classic uptown shotgun home of carpenter and artist, Sarah Burton.  Sarah likes to reuse and up-cycle funerary equipment, including Ms. Mae’s temporary casket, which has been converted into a one-of-a-kind sofa in honor of a one-of-a-kind woman.

Who is Ms. Mae? Well, she was the beloved owner of The Club Ms. Mae’s on Magazine Street. One of new Orleans most famous bar owners, during her years at the popular watering hole, where drinks are cheap and the doors never closed, she was known as a tough-as-nails manager who didn’t tolerate cursing or other activity she deemed inappropriate.
