May Baily’s Place


415 Dauphine Street
French Quarter
New Orleans LA 70112

This Creole-style cottage was once one of the first and most notorious bordellos of New Orleans' Storyville red-May Baily's Licenselight district.  Come discover a boudoir-inspired escape, where sultry sips and hand-crafted cocktails mingle with burlesque art and indulgent fabrics and textures.

Alongside historic details, such as a framed copy of the operating license granted to May Baily in 1857 and a red light that burns above the bar, May Baily's has been known for its numerous ghost sightings. The bar was even featured on the Travel Channel's hit TV show, Ghost Adventures.
