The place to see and be seen with a pumping dancefloor, two bars upstairs, and a giant video bar downstairs.

      I've had so many fun nights at this bar. Usually attracts a younger / clean cut crowd. Downstairs is great for meeting new people and ogling the hot bartenders and gogos. Upstairs has a fun but sometimes too crowded dance floor. My favorite is hanging out on the upstairs balcony hearing the dance music waft out of the doors on a hot night. Oz across the street is probably better for dancing, but I've always made new friends here. It just seems the crowd is more there to meet, chat and well, whatever.

      Derogatory slurs by staff
      I will never set foot in Bourbon Pub again, and will do everything in my power to continually spread the word about how my group was treated in this establishment. I have been coming here multiple times a year for over a decade. This trip, for Easter, we brought a straight couple with us who hadn't been here before. She got up to use the restroom, and someone, later found out to be an "off duty staff member" decided to jump up and start dancing on her seat. When our friend returned, the "staff member" wouldn't give her the seat back, and when we asked what's up, she and her boyfriend were told to leave the bar by security with no explanation. On top of that, a woman who identified herself as the owner, who was herself inebriated beyond belief, started calling us "fucking faggots" and several other derogatory slurs. At a gay bar, no less. So much for supporting your customers and you community.

      Best gay bar in New Orleans
      This is by far my favorite bar in New Orleans and one of the main reasons I keep going back time and time again to this city! Downstairs has a friendly neighborhood bar feel with large televisions that play everything from music videos to clips from popular movies and TV shows. Upstairs has a large balcony overlooking Bourbon Street with a dance floor, stage and beautiful VIP area. The bartenders and go-go dancers are incredibly beautiful and sexy. Drinks are strong and reasonably priced (try the cherry bomb)

      Fantastic Bar!!
      This was the first bar I ever entered and that was in 1980. Its still just as interesting and exciting today. Never know who will walk in the door!! Drinks are cheap but it does get crowded and hot down stairs. Its a wonderful happy hour bar and fun to watch the tourist walk by.

      most popular, why?
      I just don't get why this place is so popular, very pricey drinks ($21) for two call drinks and they didn't even have popular brands like Stoli and Jameson. Mis-poured mix on top of that. We spent most of SD at the other bars where we could get what we wanted and at prices more competitive.

      NOLA Gay Staple
      Great place to go if its your first time there. Two floors with an upstairs dance floor. Great outdoor patio for people watching! Better bartenders tend to be downstairs versus upstairs!

      Another great stop on Bourbon
      This bar is right on the corner of Bourbon St & St Ann.... the start of the gay district. They have a dance floor upstairs and they have a great balconies. This is more like your neighborhood bar. They have lots of TV's to show videos.
