Pictures Of Two Famous Old New Orleans French Quarter Bars Now Gone La Casa De Los Marinos And The Seven Seas Or La Siete Mares

It is hard to find pictures of these places so I will put them on here. La Casa De Los Marinos was on the corner of Toulouse Street and Decatur Street. And The Seven Seas was on St. Phillip just off Decatur.
The above picture is the building that housed La Casa de Los Marinos back in the 1960s. It was right across the street from Jax Brewery on the corner of Toulouse St. and Decatur St. It is now a restaurant. Click to enlarge the photo.

Click and double click on the above photo to enlarge. The Seven Seas Bar is on the right hand side of the street. Photo by Eddie Hunter from 1965.

   In Mardi Gras of 1964 Bob Dylan was in both places among all the other bars in the French Quarter like Wanda's and Baby Green's. Click on the link below to read all about Bob Dylan at the 1964 Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
   Here is a link to an article about gone but not forgotten New Orleans watering holes of the past. Be sure and read the comments since they mention more places the author did not mention.
