Hours: Open 24/7
The Bourbon Pub is reportedly the oldest, continually-run gay bar in the nation. It has been in operation since at least 1973. The last residence of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau is directly across the street.
A former owner is believed to haunt the bar. He is said to be unhappy with recent renovations and changes. Another spirit, dubbed the Bastionado Ghost, strikes patrons on the soles of their feet with a stick. Staff members have reported the apparition of a small Creole woman, called "Mam" by employees, wearing a plain cotton dress and bandana wandering the establishment during the late hours.
