Mother-in-Law Lounge reopening endorsed by New Orleans Planning Commission
The word “iconic” was tossed around like Carnival beads Tuesday as the City Planning Commission considered a request to let one of New Orleans’ most famous music venues, Ernie K-Doe’s Mother-in-Law Lounge, reopen under the leadership of one of the city’s most famous musicians, Kermit Ruffins. To no one’s surprise, the plan won unanimous approval.
The planning staff said the requested rezoning and conditional-use permit would bring back “one of New Orleans’ iconic music and cultural venues” and help revive a Treme block ”that has been suffering from demolition, vacancies and neglect,” and that the reopening would “restore a landmark and historical site as a jazz performance venue and as a display of New Orleans cultural tradition.”
No one spoke against the proposal.
