Lesbian New Orleans for Newbies – Go Girlfriend

Visiting lesbian New Orleans for the first time? Prioritize your agenda – lots of play, a good amount of eating and maybe a little sleep. From girlfriends exploring, bachelorette and bachelor parties, to couples wandering hand-in-hand looking for amour en Vieux Carre, the French Quarter is alive at all hours of the day or night.

Experienced Nola travelers pace themselves but it’s newbies get overwhelmed and enjoy some things a little too much (like Bourbon street after midnight) and completely miss the magic of other things (like beignets at Café du Monde). If you’re planning a trip to the Big Easy, pull up a chair and learn how to strategize your Nola travel time like a pro.

It’s no secret how Nawlins, also known as Mardi Gras City got its name – lavish celebrations, wee-hour partying and drunken rowdiness is just another day (or night) in this city. Bourbon Street captures more than its fair share of attention, but there’s so much more this city has to offer – historically, culturally and architecturally.

Whether you’re chasing bawdy carousing after dark or memorable moments with your lover, start your day with a beignet and chicory coffee at Café du Monde. The restaurant is always busy so we suggest using the to-go window and crossing the street to the quieter Jackson Square. From there, you’re ready to experience all the French Quarter has to offer…

Rolling down St. Charles Avenue in a vintage 1920s streetcar. Sampling fresh beignets at Café du Monde. Dancing to live music at Tipitina’s. Sipping Sazeracs on Royal Street.

One could try to summarize New Orleans through a particular place or dish or sight. But there’s no single experience that can explain the magic of the Crescent City. It’s a collective atmosphere, a blend of food, music, heritage, and revelry that feeds the senses and inspires the soul.

The city’s vintage is key. New Orleans celebrated its 300th year in 2018, and over three centuries it’s played home to legends that span every kind of archetype—from pirates and heroes, to artists and chefs. Queers and dandies, of course, are among the colorful characters too, led by natives like Truman Capote, Lillian Hellman, Big Freedia, and so many others whose legacies are inherent to the homegrown community.

Visiting lesbian New Orleans is a chance to join the effervescence. To start, head to the French Quarter and let the gaiety take you on a journey. Jackson Square and the French Market are major landmarks from which narrow streets branch out, leading to Bourbon Street’s open-air music venues and bars. Around St. Ann and Dumaine streets, flirty gay spots like Good Friends, Bourbon Pub & Parade, and Oz make this the city’s main LGBT hub. While there’s no lesbian bar, the third Saturday of each month brings the wild GrrlSpot party to various clubs around town.
