NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — For the second time during the 18-month-long pandemic Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro will close its doors due to spikes in COVID-19 in Orleans Parish.

“Due to the current state of the pandemic, we feel we are unable to keep staff and patrons safe at this time. For the safety of everyone and their families, we will be closed through at least Aug. 14. Please check back for updates and stay safe!”
