The Snake and Jakes Christmas Club Barn at Bonnaroo is a phenomenal tribute to the infamous dive bar of the same name located in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The original Snake and Jakes has made its way onto Anthony Bourdain's television show and is a hit with such celebrities as Quentin Tarantino and George Glooney, so its no surprise the southern dive bar with a cult reputation has a full-fledged homage at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.

True to the original, the Snake and Jakes incarnation at Bonnaroo is lit with only strings of red Christmas lights and plenty of other kitschy holiday decor, creating one of the many unique places for festival goers to experience in between sets.
