Gay bar in the French Quarter that makes some really strong drinks! Fully crowded with men (which stunk for this gay girl), but everyone was really nice and the drinks were just right! Right in the heart of the French Quarter on Bourbon St., so...More

I like this place a lot. Friendly staff. Beer and cocktails. Relaxed atmosphere. It's kind of like a gay Cheers. At night, the upstairs has a dance club, or drag show or whatever is on for the night. Tip:if you plan on going upstairs, pay...More

With the average $10-$15 cover per night just to get in, and then absurd inflation of drink and beer pricing with typically a $20-$30 minimum tab for credit card transactions, I cannot recommend this gay bar. It's 2017, everyone pays with CC, deal with the...More

Can usually get a seat upstairs and watch the crowd. Prices were ok. This is a rainbow bar but not pushy and had no problem with us being there. Looking for a place to sit that you can get into. Here's your place

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
