Hot Time in the Big Easy
Conveniently located above Lucy’s Bar and Grill in New Orleans’ Warehouse District, Lucy’s Lofts was the perfect place for young, struggling, down-on-their-luck or up-and-coming, destitute, unknown artists. Or bohemians. Or anyone who could swing $250 a month and didn’t mind living above a 24/7 bar infested with vermin – human and otherwise.
Initially drawn here by his avaunt-garde artist pals, Quintus eventually was able to elevate the level of tenants. He’s come to an understanding with Lucy, the owner of the building: he can stay here rent free if he’s able to continue to find artists willing to pay now-premium rents. Since then, rent has skyrocketed and the lofts have become a minor artistic hub in New Orleans.
