NOLA Voodoo Tavern and Perks in the Cole Neighborhood is, as the owner Henry Batiste describes, “a bar with great food.” Visit their website but better yet go visit them for some drinks & good food!

Why did you choose Cole to do business in?

I chose this neighborhood because it’s a very friendly, diverse and multicultural environment. I would describe my customers as middle aged, very friendly, and intuitive regarding the art and atmosphere in the bar.

What about this neighborhood jives with your business culture?

Customers love the food, the drinks, and the music. They bring to the table the atmosphere that we need for our business to thrive.

Why are you passionate about your business? What’s the story?

My passion is to be knowledgeable about our customers – in how we connect and in what their needs are. As I say, “Customers are the profit that I need to run my business”. We aim to run a smooth business with lots of energy and excitement.

What inspired the look of your business/ the design?

My business inspires me a lot from back home, New Orleans. I wanted to bring my taste of culture from back home all the way to the city of Denver.
