At R Bar, cult movies play silently on televisions. An entire rock group’s gear, including guitars, amps, and a drum kit, is suspended from the ceiling, along with a human skeleton fronting the band. The punked-out atmosphere attracts artists and off-duty musicians from the Marigny and Bywater neighbourhoods. Sit in the recycled airline seats, surrounded by the glowing red walls, and enjoy a drink in first-class style. R Bar looks more like an art installation than a watering hole.
