This two-story bar with its famous balcony is always a lively place. Cafe Lafitte In Exile is a fun spot if you are looking for action and has long been a gathering place for gay men of every age group. There is always a special event on the calendar, from body painting contests to the annual Gay Mardi Gras. The crowd is rough edged and somewhat older, but always welcoming. The bar is lit by many gas lamps, making it very dark and shadowy. The bar is good for those looking for a more subdued gay bar along Bourbon.
