ELLEN & HER SQUAD

Quite possibly the most star-studded selfie ever taken, Ellen DeGeneres's 2014 Oscars snap brought together Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Pitt, Meryl Streep and a slew of other actors for the ultimate photo op. It may have been a crowded impromptu shoot, but we'd have zero issue trying to squeeze in next to Channing Tatum in the back there. In fact, that would make this coveted selfie an absolute dream come true.

It's hard to imagine a time when PEOPLE's 2012 Sexiest Man Alive wasn't ruling the box office (and our hearts). While Tatum famously worked as a stripper after he dropped out of the University of South Florida, fewer people know he played the role of deejay in a 2002 Pepsi commercial. (Backstory: He didn't know how to deejay. That's the power of Channing Tatum.)

You're either a saint or a sinner at Tatum's restaurant-bar, a tribute to New Orleans nightlife and the city's Storyville red-light, Burlesque district. A good time is certainly in store for the bustling crowds of the Big Easy: The restaurant (which is decked out in contemporary bordello décor) provides a lengthy cocktail menu with sections dedicated to specialty drinks and dirty martinis.
