Dana Goldberg will be Live at the Bourbon Pub on Saturday March 19, for her Stand up for Equality Tour. The Bourbon Pub at 801 Bourbon street across from Oz, is open 24 hours a day, but your liver might need a break after twenty of those.

The official hotel of Oz Nightclub is the French Quarter Suites Hotel located off of 1119 N Rampart 504.524.7725 or Reservations: 1.800.457.2253. There are also some good hotel deals just blocks away from Bourbon street where the party never seems to end that week but who needs a hotel room?
