My niece and I had a wonderful time listening to the "dirty" blues by Dick Deluxe! This bar is one of my favorite late night haunts in the French Quarter. Great people and good times in a gay friendly environment.

We had a night in this place and it's so relaxed - no pretence here whatsoever. Booze is cheap and strong. Good dive bar, I'll be back.

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
