In 1994, Ernie K-Doe opened the world-famous Ernie K-Doe Mother-in-Law Lounge at 1500 N. Claiborne Avenue in New Orleans, Louisiana. One of K-Doe's main reasons for opening the Lounge was to provide a place for New Orleans' living legends to come and perform. Don't be surprised if you find yourself rubbing elbows with some of the greats of the Crescent City when you visit the Mother-in-Law Lounge.
The Lounge is a shrine to the immortal legend of K-Doe. The walls are adorned with photographs and artwork of K-Doe throughout his life. Many pictures of K-Doe's family and friends can be seen as well.
When K-Doe was still with us, it wasn't uncommon to have the Emperor himself greet you at the door. Today, Antoinette continues to keep alive the warm, friendly, hospitable environment that K-Doe's fans have come to expect. You are nothing if not well-taken-care-of at the Mother-in-Law Lounge. Have a drink and play the jukebox, which has one of the best selections you can find of classic New Orleans R&B artists (including a great many K-Doe hits!).
The Mother-in-Law Lounge is located at the edge of New Orleans' historic Tremé neighborhood on the corner of N. Claiborne and Columbus:
Ernie and Antoinette hope to see you soon at the
Mother-in-Law Lounge, and they hope you come back often. If you
