Club New Orleans News

Ah the spirit of Pride in June…

The Club New Orleans had a strong presence during Pride.  Manager Robbie Martin kicked off Pride at Boomtown Casino by DJing for New Orleans Pride’s first event of the weekend.  It was well attended and good time was had by all.  The Club New Orleans sponsored the pride volunteers by providing Tshirts with the New Orleans Pride logo on the front and The Club logo on the back…they were neon green and could not be missed and were worn by all 35 of the volunteers all weekend!  Then on Saturday, The Club had a presence in the pride parade, which rolled the entire length of Bourbon Street and snaked through the French Quarter.  Miles, a bartender from local bar Good Friends and one of the hottest gym members of Club New Orleans rode in the back of our pickup truck with porn star Damien Stone …they both threw mardi gras beads the entire way and were the hottest men in the parade!  On the side of the truck were magnets with our logo & brand with the tagline “Louisiana’s ONLY gay mens’ bathhouse” which got lots of attention as Robbie handed out passes from the driver’s seat of the truck.  As pride wound down on Monday & commemorating the 40th anniversary of the burning of The Upstairs Lounge (a bar that was set fire by an angry patron who was kicked out in which 32 gay people died) there was the final showing of “Upstairs: The Musical”.  The show was great and produced by Wayne Guest.  The Club New Orleans sponsored the show for its 5 day run and we were given an amazing location in the program for our advertisement.

Going into July we kicked it off with manager Robbie Martin’s “Open House” welcoming party coinciding with Independence Day.  We ran an ad in Ambush magazine inviting patrons to come watch the fireworks on our rooftop sundeck and served snacks and drinks.  After the fireworks a toast was made by the 20+ guys on the deck to welcome Robbie and thank him for all of his hard work over the first 3 months.  It was a great night for all of us.

And going deeper into July we had a surprise corporate visit from Mark Craven who came to help Robbie settle into and streamline his office for optimal productivity.  In the works for the rest of the month are continuing with the supplementary lighting installation to brighten the dark spots in the hallways.  Many of the 3rd floor rooms have been painted to cover antiquated murals that were reminiscent of old school baths…but had expired & needed freshening up.  The same Deep Space and Rock Grey colors were used to echo the painting of the 1st and 2nd floors.  There are still more rooms to go, but the current progress is welcomed and appreciated.  Hopefully Mark will return before the end of the month or early next month as we could certainly use his assistance in renovating the current porn lounge into our futuristic porno maze just in time for Southern Decadence!

Continuing with our theme parties Bear Trap on the second Saturday of the month and CumUnion on the 3rd Saturday of the month, we are soon to add Red Light District, our red light/lights out night.  With remote controlled LED lighting throughout The Club, it takes just a push of a button to change the entire feel of the club as it gets RED HOT with red light, and in some places we just turn them off completely!  Stay tuned for details in next month’s newsletter on this party…and keep having Good.  Clean.  Fun!

Club Columbus News

The Club took a good pounding during Pride weekend, and as every good pounding should be, it was a great experience. So....with Pride behind us and summer officially under way, we are looking forward to the bright, sun-shiny fun-filled days here at Club Columbus. Here's what's coming up!

POOLSIDE PARTY SET TO SPARKLE
Our 4th of July celebration starts @ 1pm with a poolside picnic and party hosted by DJ JEREMY JAMES. Join us for great music and some All American favorite foods (hot dogs, chips and potato salad). Later that evening our RIDE THE ROCKET! party starts @ 8pm when we dim the lights inside for the RED,WHITE AND GLOW PARTY. Party favors and snacks provided.

NEED A CURE FOR THE SUMMERTIME BLUES?
We've got it! How about a POOL LOCKER for $10 Monday through Friday from 8am-4pm or the "you can never go wrong" weekly "fun-n-sun" Sunday Buffets @ 1pm.

18? 19? 20? 21? 22? 23? 24?
If you fall within this age range, you are invited to join us and get a FREE GUEST PASS each time you enter and purchase a locker or room rental. We waive the fee so you can relax and enjoy the good times to be had. Valid I.D. required.

PARTY with JEREMY JAMES
Our favorite, sexy and sweet DJ has signed on to DJ for Sunday Tea this summer. Join us on July 21st @ 1pm and party the sunDAY away.

SUIT UP COLUMBUS
Free Condoms are always available at Club Columbus. True, it's almost unfashionable to talk about HIV any longer. Younger people often think that people who talk about HIV are relics of the 80's and 90's, when AIDS was a real problem. However, many rank-and-file LGBT people don't agree. For gay men are HIV negative, the virus hangs over their heads as an ever present threat. For men who are HIV positive, they live with the knowledge that they have a deadly virus being controlled by medication with no cure. Club Columbus believes nothing is more sacred to our community than it's health, and that health of LGBT community is still very much at risk.

ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT
We are always looking for motivated and fun-loving people to join our staff. Open interviews are held ever Friday from 2-4 pm. Swing by and fill out an application. They are available 24/7 at the front desk.

Outside by the pool, pick a spot and chow down on some All-American food (hot dogs, chips, potato salad etc).

NEED A CURE FOR THE SUMMERTIME BLUES?
We've got it! How about a POOL LOCKER for $10 Monday through Friday from 8am-4pm, or joining us for our TUESDAY NIGHT MOVIE & PIZZA NIGHT @ 8pm and you can never go wrong with our weekly "fun-n-sun" Sunday Buffets @ 1pm.
