6 sexy off-the-beaten-path gay bars in New Orleans

New Orleans is a top destination for partying, known for its 24-hour bars and clubs and laissez-faire attitude towards open containers. So long as you're respectful (and don't pee on the streets!), anything pretty much goes.

The city's most popular area for gay bar hopping is The Fruit Loop, a section of the French Quarter near the intersection of Bourbon Street and St. Ann where all the most popular bars are located.

But travel just a few blocks out and you'll find plenty of other friendly and welcoming venues where the boys are just as cute and the drinks just as strong!
