Mag’s is truly the gay support bar of the city. It is the local home to many charitable organizations, pageants, drag shows, and that’s putting it lightly. Check out the crowd at Mag’s 940, you might be pleasantly surprised.
Mag’s 940 is one of New Orleans “Hidden Gems”, located in the heart of the Marigny. We have a FULLY STOCKED BAR, featuring a large seating area and a stage that highlights our local talent and artists on any given night of the week. Our bartenders are the warmest, friendliest and sometimes sassiest in the city. And some have been honored with notable achievement awards. “Mag’s won the title of the “Best Show Bar of the Year” three years in a row and has been labeled the” Bar of New Traditions.” This is a laid back, no pressure neighborhood favorite.

Stroll through one of the most beautiful and historic parks in New Orleans. Jackson Square is always full of street artists, jazz performers, tourists, and locals alike; needless to say, this is one of the city’s most popular squares.
About Jackson Square
Historic Jackson Square, originally known in the 18th century as “Place d’Armes,” and later renamed in honor of the Battle of New Orleans hero Andrew Jackson, is a timeless attraction in the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans.
This famous landmark facing the Mississippi River is surrounded by historic buildings, including the St. Louis Cathedral, the Presbytere and Cabildo (Louisiana State Museums), not to mention the Lower and Upper Pontalba Apartments, the oldest apartment buildings in the United State. The Pontalba Apartments offer retail shops, museums, galleries and restaurants on the ground level; their second and third floors still house a selection of prestigious apartments.
For well over a half-century, there has been an open-air artist colony at Jackson Square. Local artists paint, draw, create portraits and caricatures, and display their work on the square’s iron fence. Some have been there for generations!
Jackson Square is a favorite site for visitors and locals. The artists, restaurants, museums, merchants and the square itself make Jackson Square one of the French Quarter’s most popular destinations.
