Venerable gay institution offering a two-tiered double-whammy of fun..
The Bourbon Pub and Parade is actually two clubs in one. Downstairs, the Bourbon Pub video bar is a frenzied singles hangout, with crowds often spilling out onto the street; upstairs, the Parade offers a serious dance experience with nationally known DJs, an impressive laser-light show and a state-of-the-art sound system. Throbbing high-energy beats blast from both, dominating the airwaves of the entire street corner.
As the epicenter of gay nightlife in the French Quarter, this is the place to be for big gay holidays like Mardi Gras, Southern Decadence and Halloween. And it doesn't lack for customers the rest of the year. While women and straights are welcome, gay men of all ages and races are the predominant clientele.
The never-ending carnival. Bourbon Pub & Parade is quite an intense place, offering a variety of entertainment. there is always something going on, and if you can get your way to a bar seat, you never know what you'll see.
Dorothy, get out of Oz and come here!. I come to NO at least twice a year and after being told by the "Marys" at the concierge desk of my hotel to go to Oz (which is across the street) I practically ran over to this place! Nice, friendly down to earth clientele and staff. Mixed crowd, not the snotty pretty boys of Oz....music is better and prices are cheaper!
The Place To Be. I have been to New Orleans a few times and have always enjoyed going to the Pub and Parade. The Pub is a great place to sit and chat while watching music videos and later on in the evening, when it's time to dance, head on upstairs to Parade. Parade captures you with the music and my favorite, the green laser lights. If you want a great place to dance, skip Oz and go to the Bourbon Pub and Parade.
Great Gay Club. Simply the best overall gay club in New Orleans. Video club with plasma monitors and great sound downstairs; Incredible dance club upstairs...some of the best sound I have heard (and I've lived in both New York and Los Angeles). The dance floor lighting is superb...not overdone like many dance clubs. Well thought-out installation. Bartenders are the most friendly of any club. Security is present, but not overbearing.
10. At the Bourbon Pub I felt comfortable sense I am just coming out. Other places I have felt uneasy.
Hottest gay pub in the South. The Bourbon Pub at 801 Bourbon Street has proved itself to be THE hottest gay pub in the South! With that southern charm, French Quarter atmosphere, open arms for gays and straights, and some of the BEST BARTENDERS wrapped up into one pub, how could you go wrong? Great music and great personalities line the downstairs awesome video bar. Upstairs in the Parade Disco, you can dance till you drop with the "high octane" music spun by some of the greatest DJ's in New Orleans. To NOT visit the Bourbon Pub while in New Orleans would be a mortal sin. A MUST SEE, when visiting the Big Easy. Cheers! And hats off to The Bourbon Pub & Parade Disco!
