    Hi, I will be in New Orleans over Labor Day weekend. Could anyone recommend any gyms close to the French Quarter ?
    Thanks

    We are going to Southern Decadence this year. First time ever. Pretty excited! Looks like a lot of fun. Not sure how you are going to find time for the gym with all the partying going on.

    We have so many incredible events here in New Orleans, but Southern Decadence is NOT one of them in my opinion.

    Seems like all New Orleans native dislikes Southern Decadence.. They all say it's just sweaty shirtless guys fucking in the streets and it's overcrowded.

    I agree.....used to live there, hot and muggy, lots of standing around outside of bars and a loosely-organized parade..............visit S CAL that time of year and save all that sweat.

    Take the worst gay pride parade you've ever been to....then pick out the top most stereotypical guys there and you got Southern Decadence. icon_surprised.gif

    NOAC on Rampart St. is really nice. Club's been around since the late 1800s and the building still looks really historical. Very classy but some gay cruising sometimes occurs in the locker room and sauna. hooking up in there is strictly forbidden, so if you see someone you like, introduce yourself and get together after you leave the club. I don't think they do day passes, so find a member who will take you in on their guest pass.

    Another option if you're adventurous....Club New Olreans (the bath house) on Toulouse St....It is a bath house, but they actually have a fully equipped gym on the 1st floor. $25 bucks gets you a locker and full use of the facility for 4 hours. Rooftop has a sunbathing deck.

    The "parade" just passed by my front door. Always the same....drag queens, leather queens and the occasionally naked queen. icon_lol.gif
