If Elvis lived in New Orleans and was a little down on his luck, he would certainly frequent Kingpin. The leopard-skin walls are lined with a thrift-store collection of saint statues, funky lamps, and concert posters. In any other city, Kingpin would be the exclusive territory of cliquish hipsters. In New Orleans, the bar attracts a crowd of friendly eccentrics. Irregularly scheduled events range from rock shows to spelling bees, crawfish boils to car washes benefiting the local roller derby team. A game of darts or shuffleboard can be found any night of the week.
