HERE’S THE STORY
Created in 1897, New Orleans’ famous red light district entertained many a well-heeled gentleman and nearly shoeless men alike. Dubbed “Storyville” after Sidney Story, a city councilman who designated it as an area where brothels were legal, it was a haven for jazz musicians, risqué women, and men of questionable morals until 1917 when it was shut down. With its inviting interior and alluring atmosphere, Saints & Sinners harkens back to the days when bordellos were where you went for heavenly company and a sinfully good time.
HEAVEN ON EARTH
After countless childhood visits and several on-location film shoots, actor Channing Tatum, along with longtime friend and business partner Keith Kurtz, fell in love with the Big Easy’s laissez les bons temps rouler attitude and colorful history in a big way. Styled after the famous red-light district bordellos and burlesque halls of New Orleans’ Storyville era, Saints & Sinners is Tatum’s tribute to the city’s ribald, good-time reputation.
