    • This is one of my favorite bars in New Orleans. Everyone is always friendly, the drinks are cheap, the music's good, and there's never any drama. Grab a table outside on the balcony if you can. It's a great place to relax and people watch from above.

      Great neighborhood bar
      Downstairs is a great place to play a game of pool or sit and have a drink. Staff is friendly and likes to talk plus drink prices are reasonable. Upstairs has a beautiful balcony. They also have go-go dancers/strippers upstairs on some nights

      Great place for a drink.
      If it is football season, when the saints score free shots for all. ( although it is not the best quality ) Great bar to hang out and have a drink. They have a pool table.

      My favorite!
      Decent drink prices for the French Quarter ... plus the upstairs bartender may be the best in the city!

      Always a fun time
      I can literally say, that each time I visit New Orleans, one of my memorable nights happens upstairs here. Well, let's just say (this time), the 3 brazilians were quite yummy. Most people are generally friendly here. And yes, as the other reviewer said "The Separator" - I was introduced to it this past weekend-refreshing. Oh, If you don't want to hang out, just make sure you do a walk through downstairs and upstairs. You don't want to miss anything.

      Bourbon and Coke at 11:00AM - Can't Beat It!
      The name says it...Good Friends is just that, a place to relax, have a drink and get to know some good friends! It isn't the best gay bar in New Orleans but if you are in the area (which, of course you are!) stop in and have a drink!

      Beautiful Bar! Bitchy Bartender
      Don't let that stop you from checking it out though. I think he was just having a bad day. Beautifully done bar. I loved it.

      Friendliest place in town!
      All of the bartenders here are incredible, love chatting with each one! Even on busy nights, they always have time for a smile, and always remember my drink (at least after the first)!

      Extremely friendly during Mardi Gras
      I do not know when the people with the other reviews visited, but I have been for Carnival ad Decadence and always enjoyed this bar. I really enjoyed the dancers upstairs. They seem to do a LOT more than the ones downstairs.
