From WWL-TV: “Margaritaville on Decatur St. not closing, just moving”
It appears a story that Margaritaville New Orleans would close is erroneous, as a spokesperson for the businesses says that the club will move instead of closing.
The Jimmy Buffett-themed restaurant, bar and live music venue will move from its current address at 1104 Decatur Street to a new unnamed location on upper Decatur.
“We will always have a presence in the city that gave Jimmy his start. Margaritaville has had an awesome 22-year run on Decatur Street and we are not done yet,” said Bret Brown, Margaritaville’s Director of Domestic Operations. “We have made the decision to vacate our current location on lower Decatur before completion of our new property in the interest of making way for another namesake live music venue, BB King’s, to become the next tenant at the historic Storyville Music Hall location.”
