#2470 - Bourbon Pub and Parade, New Orleans - 3/19/2014
When I come in the TVs are replaying Pink's version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" from the Oscars show and the entire bar area is entranced -- with most of the patrons are gesturing and mouthing the words.The Bourbon Pub, along with rival Oz across the street, are party central for clubbing gays in New Orleans. "Michael Paul Castrillo, who worked as a bartender at Oz in the early 2000s, recalls a rivalry between Oz and Bourbon Pub and Parade that was so heated that each of the bar's managers would send over customers or staffers to the other's place to spy on the crowd, get a head count and report back." (nola.com) They are both large clubs (this one slightly larger), with multiple bars on two floors, and both open 24 hours.
