This truly is a friendly spot, drawing mixed genders, types, and ages. We like that the decor and music aren’t generically techno’ed out—it at least tries to maintain some NOLA feel—and that the straight-welcoming local denizens will gladly chat you up. The upstairs Queens Head Pub is most entertaining during the Sunday 3pm singalong. On a hot day, the frozen concoction called the Separator goes down easy.
