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.
