Sandy Sachs

Dinah Vegas founder Sandy Sachs shares her top tips on the jazz capital of the world.

I’ve lived here since… August of 2010. I stayed because New Orleans is in my blood. I went to College here at Tulane University and this is the town I came out in.

My favorite queer bar has to be… None other than The Bourbon Pub & Parade which is the first gay bar I had ever been to…and now I own it!

Here in New Orleans, we always look forward to… NOLA folks bring new meaning to the acronym TGIF…they really know how to celebrate.

New Orleans’ best building is undoubtedly… The Pontalba Buildings built in the 1840s and flank Jackson Square. They are the oldest apartment buildings in the United States.
