      Great place but always lacking people. They need find ways to pull in people from around the city.

      Great Hangout
      Had a great visit to New Orleans which most of my highlights all happened at John Paul's. Met some great (and cute:) locals each time I wanted a break from the quarter and stopped in for a cocktail. Bobby (HOTTIE!!!!!) the bartender was incredibly entertaining, witty and attentive to everyone. Thank you John Paul's..I'll be back in April !!

      Paul is a fake
      As a business person I do bot put people on the back burner. I treat a person the same way i am treated and do not let my GM or otherv people make my decisions for me. I may have a handicap but i do not allow it to interfere with my business. If I tell a person that after three days you will have your refund I dont shoot a movie and put my friends to the side or tell them to stay away from my office. If somone pays me upfront and leaves before their lease then I will take care of them and not create bs. Bobby needs to figure out that he is not god and that he is jepordizing my business and my stature,

      great club
      This year, I was able to spend more time at this club and found it to be a very welcoming, friendly club. I saw 2 drag shows, both benefits and both shows were excellent and fun!! The clientele is very friendly.

      Best Bar in Nola
      Two friends and I absolutely loved the drag show! Every employee, performer and owner Paul were incredible. We all decided if we lived in Nola we would be at John Paul's every night. What a delightful find!!

      Treated like royalty
      this place has kind of an alternative vibe, with a traditional setting. Very friendly staff and the lady bartender has a smile that is genuine and absolutely beautiful. The owners John and Paul are lovely to get to talk to. BTW they don't even tell you that they are the owners. I spent an hour having great conversation and cocktails with Paul before one of the performers came up to him with an issue he needed to fix. Not pretentious at all.

      SISTER'S BACHELORETTE PARTY!!
      Went to New Orleans for my sisters bachelorette party. And we were staying down the road at the Olde Town Inn. The whole weekend we practically lived at this bar! We had gone all over New Orleans, Bourbon St., the French Quarter, all over. But out of all the places we went, we loved JohnPauls the most! John, Paul & Manny were soo friendly and we had sooo much fun!! Keep up the good work fellas!! WE MISS YOU!!

      You HAVEN"T visited New Orleans without it!
      I recently took a long awaited trip to New Orleans and met Paul at an open house. He was so friendly and easy going that when he invited my friend and I to his bar that evening, we new we had to go. We never expected, however, to have the time of our trip at JohnPauls. During my stay in N.O. , I did the usual tourist stuff....Bourbon street, French Quarter, Cafe Dumonde, Maspero's, power shopping, various tours etc. Out of all of it, my absolute favorite was the night I spent at JohnPauls. I have been to several bars/clubs in my area (D.C.) and none have been as friendly and fun as JohnPauls. I couldn't believe how good the drinks were and the prices were quite fair. It was easy to meet people as the atmosphere lends itself to good conversation and if that wasn't enough reason to go....I was then handed a bowl of freshly popped popcorn at the beginning of the most darling drag show! Marcy and the ladies were wonderful! JohnPauls is one of those places you hope to find on vacation...the kind of place that locals enjoy and keep secret for themselves. Well, no more...I say YOU HAVEN'T VISITED NEW ORLEANS WITHOUT IT.! Many thanks, John and Paul.....from Kristi

      WOW
      Check out the upstairs of this place. It's like a Bayou mansion, classically decked out in a Victorian interior design. The owners and staff are so friendly, it will blow your damn mind. I went to this place during Southern Decadence, and I can't stop thinking about it. They served a great barbecue pork dinner. All the food in this town is great.

      Mardi Gras 2009
      Went to John Paul's several times during the last Mardi Gras and had a great time especially during the Krewe of Olympus' Houston's social/party. I look forward to going again during Labor Day weekend's Southern Decadence 2009. They also had excellent Bloody Marys.
