1940s era French Quarter Jazz club on corner of St. Louis & Bourbon: 441 Bourbon Street (now Bourbon Street Blues Company): From the New Orleans Jazz History Central Vieux Carre Walking Tour brochure: “One of the early jazz spots on Bourbon St., Prima’s 500 Club was operated by Leon Prima, Louis’s older brother and himself a trumpeter of some repute. Prima and Frank Federico were highlighted at the opening in 1946, and music historian Hank Kmen later played in the band here.”
