A stop at Spirits on Bourbon isn’t complete without a shot on Edward’s Barber Chair! Why a barber chair? Spirits was formerly owned by Edward DeBoire who had a rather successful tonsorium business here.
Unfortunately, the free flowing drinks and beautiful Creole ladies called to Edward in a most unnatural way! He met a rather tragic death at only 33 years of age.
It is said that his spirit enjoys our bar. In fact, what is now our stage was where his barber chair stood. It was clear when the stage was erected that Edward did not appreciate having his barber chair removed. To pacify him, we added the Barber Chair to pay homage to Edward in a fun way, that we thought he would appreciate. Hope you enjoy it too!
