6 fun New Orlans hangs for GAYS & LESBIANS


Bourbon Pub

801 Bourbon St., 529-2107

Booze downstairs, bop upstairs at this venerable house of dance and music video. Tuesday is lesbian night (with drag kings!).

Rubyfruit Jungle

1135 Decatur St., 373-5431

New Orleans' lesbians got their own bar again when Rubyfruit opened earlier this year on Lower Decatur Street.

Café Lafitte in Exile

901 Bourbon St., 522-8397

Open 24/7, Lafitte's has a great balcony, hi-def video and packs 'em in for Sunday "trash disco."

John Paul's

940 Elysian Fields Ave., 948-1888

Bears, drag queens, lesbians and straight folks make this club fun. Did you know about the tiny candelit bar upstairs (open weekends only)?

Big Daddy's

2513 Royal St., 948-6288

Part friendly Marigny neighborhood bar, part live-action John Waters film, always a good time.

AllWays Lounge

2240 St. Claude Ave., 218-5778

The name of this Marigny Theatre adjunct has changed, but it'll always be Cowpokes to the guy in assless chaps sipping PBR at the bar.
