From the release:
Bourbon Street: the bars, the dives, the haunted places . . . the blacksmith shop? New Orleans was very much a working city, and its French Quarter the hub of a vibrant commercial district in the early days. Through their lives, buildings get re-purposed, so the blacksmith shop became a tavern where pirates, smugglers, ne’er-do-wells, and even a few honest businessmen came to make deals and wet their whistles. The New Orleans Pirate’s Tavern is based on the infamous LaFitte’s Tavern in the French Quarter.
