We've been having Julian make us Mojitos and shots for a number of years now during our annual pilgrimage to Bourbon Street. His mojitos are the best around, as are his other bar drinks. A twinkle in his eye, you're in good hands with him....More

Came in out of the rain, urged by Tiny, to get a drink until the rain subsided. No, we didn't know, it was a gay bar, but the bartender informed us he wasn't gay... We had not idea why he would say that. Their hurricanes...More

Julian makes this bar!! It’s very clean and the bartenders know how to make a mojito. The bartenders are inviting so all these returning customers want to linger and visit. It’s one of my favorite New Orleans drinking spots!

This is a fantastic little joint, with high quality hand-crafted cocktails and friendly bar staff. It doesn't accept cards but has an ATM and plays a nice mix of cheese and 80 Europop. Between opening and around 9pm it is quiet, but great for a...More

The location is quite good, it's the first gay bar you come to on Bourbon. However, walk inside and it's quite dead with a run down bar and decor. Don't expect to use their bathroom without purchasing a drink and then submitting a ticket to...More

On a Friday night during the eternal frat party that is Bourbon st, this was a nice little oasis. A well decorated and clean gay bar, the staff was nice and they know how to make a drink.

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
