Who DAT Nation HQ: Pre & Post Saints Game Parties that are legendary! Private Parties and Off-Site Catering History The bar that is now Handsome Willy's was originally called The Jackson Inn and operated out of a streetcar, serving patrons who worked at the newly erected Charity Hospital. Originally, this area was part of historic black Storyville, the center of New Orleans-style debauchery in the early 1900s. Legend has it that the neighborhood pimp Handsome Willy was friends with Mr. Jackson and lived above the Jackson Inn for years.
