The Old Absinthe House


The most well known of the French Quarter streets, Bourbon Street, or Rue Bourbon, is known for its drinking establishments. Most of the bars frequented by tourists are new but the Quarter also has a number of notable bars with interesting histories. The Old Absinthe House has kept its name even though absinthe was banned in the U.S. from 1915 to 2007 because it was believed to have toxic qualities.

フレンチ・クオーターの中でも最も有名なブルボン通り(ブルボン通り)は、飲み屋街として知られています。観光客が頻繁に訪れるバーのほとんどは新しいものですが、クオーターには興味深い歴史を持つ注目すべきバーもいくつかあります。オールド・アブサン・ハウス(Old Absinthe House)は、アブサンには毒性があると考えられていたため、1915年から2007年までアメリカでアブサンが禁止されたにもかかわらず、その名を守り続けています。


This is a 5 1/2” x 7” Vintage Slate with  a painting of The Old Absinthe House Bar on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Features a beautiful painting of an old Absinthe house bar on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. The back of this slate has paper that reads that these slates came from the late 1700’s. I’m not a professional in identifying anything this old, so I’m just going by what this says. It’s possible this could be a reproduction, which is why I’m starting the auction at $5.

This is an online auction starting at $5!
