Oldest gay bar in the U.S.!
Yep, you heard me. Cafe Lafitte In Exile is the oldest gay bar in the United States. Downstairs, this club features a video-bar along with a little room to cut a rug. Some of the signature French Quarter bartenders sling drinks from this post. Upstairs is a chic and sleek game room with pinball machines, pool tables, and plenty of mirror space. It is also the only gay bar to offer umbrellas on the balcony so we don't all burn to a crisp.
