New Orleans is known as a party town, but it's also home to a large and frequently very flamboyant gay community.
In the French Quarter, you'll find the gay clubs to be located primarily on Bourbon Street, past the 800 block.
Don't be afraid to check out the clubs - the music is fantastic and the atmosphere is always...dark, sweaty and...
Good Friends-740 Dauphine St at the corner of St Ann- is a gay bar that offers one of the best treats in the Quarter, a drink called a Separator. It's a frozen, ice cream drink made with Crème de Cassis and Brandy, served with whipped cream and a cherry on top. Perfect for those hot New Orleans days and nights. It's called a 'Separator' as in it separates you from your senses.
