The always rollicking Bourbon Street Pub
(724 Duval St
, 305-294-9354) opened in 1995 is a full gay entertainment complex, with a friendly pub on the ground floor and the gay-male clothing-optional New Orleans Guest House
on the upper level. The same owners also operate the 801 Bourbon Bar and One Saloon, across the street. Bourbon Street Pub is fun and exceedingly friendly (if cruisy) just about any time of the day (it opens at 11 am most days, and Sundays at noon, remaining open until 4 am), and it has an especially popular T-dance on Sundays at 6 pm. This is a mostly male hangout - in fact, the Garden Bar and pool section are men-only after 6 pm. Two-for-one drink specials are offered all day long, until 8 pm, for one of the longest happy hours you'll ever find.
