Grrl Spot

GrrlSpot is a monthly pop-up queer & lesbian bar in New Orleans. Each month, we choose a different venue, show up in droves, and make it our own.

As the traditional lesbian bar dies, the need for queer spaces is very much alive. New Orleans, a city once home to over 10 lesbian bars, is now devoid of a dedicated space for us; GrrlSpot fills that void. We are the new era of lesbian bars, and we’re here to stay. As one of the first pop-up queer bars in the Country, our notorious pop-up lesbian & queer bar is the place to be for lesbians, queers, and people of all orientations and gender identities…and our allies, of course.

Since our humble beginnings over 10 years ago, in the early aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, we have become a fixture in New Orleans. Our annual Southern Decadence/Dykeadence party, Fleurt, has gained national recognition and has grown into one of the largest lesbian events in the South.

Every GrrlSpot is as diverse as each place we visit. Because every month draws a different crowd, there are always new people to meet. One month, you may be meeting new friends in a cozy neighborhood spot, and the next month you find yourself in New Orleans’ classiest event venue, watching an Aerialist fly overhead, enjoying a sexy burlesque show, and dancing to your favorite DJ’s.

GrrlSpot is the place to meet people, be out, and create a space for our Community – a space otherwise nonexistent. You may, like many of us, meet the love of your life, your new best friends, or just catch up with old pals. People watching is pretty great, too. You never know where we’ll pop up, who you’ll meet, see, hear, or feel. Check out our upcoming events, and don’t miss us!
