Den of Muses

Den of Muses

Architect Street (Lakeside), New Orleans, LA 70117

The Den of Muses is a huge warehouse where Mardi Gras floats are stored and made for the mythically outrageous Krewe du Vieux. The high ceilings and fantastical surroundings (colorful, off-color, themed floats line the walls) make it a truly fringe-y venue. Audience enters through Architect Street entrance.
