Le Bon Temps Roule Le Bon Temps Roule is a bar that Pepper co-owns in New Orleans. It's a place where many young, unknown bands are given an opportunity to play. It's been around for years & years. And Pepper clearly loves owning this place based on interviews he's done where he's spoken about the bar.
Here are a couple of pics of Le Bon Temps Roule that I found on the COC board:
Unfortunately, the bar suffered some damage during hurricane Katrina. Here's the bar after the hurricane hit:
Pepper did make it back into New Orleans to board up the bar shortly afterwards, though. And from what I hear - the bar is up & running again. Just barely. But still - it's open for business.
Pepper speaks of Le Bon Temps often - so I'm going to be posting info/quotes/interviews from him about the bar in this thread.
If ever you're in New Orleans - remember to stop by Le Bon Temps Roule - check out the band playing, make sure to try their infamous Po'Boy's (never had one myself, but per word of mouth - Le Bon Temps makes one of the best Po'Boy's out there )
