Café Lafitte in Exile is the oldest continuously operating gay bar in the United States. Café Lafitte is a must see if you are interested in visiting an incredibly unique landmark in New Orleans’ historic French Quarter. Dating back to 1933 and the end of Prohibition, Café Lafitte has always been welcoming. Both Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote used to frequent the bar----and the famous, infamous, locals and visitors can still be seen day and night. We are always open. Both the upstairs and the downstairs bars have outdoor seating------it’s a great Bourbon Street hangout any day, and it can’t be beat during Mardi Gras and Southern Decadence celebrations. View the largest outdoor picture screen in the Quarter on weekends and football games.
