Hey Kittens! GUESS WHAT! Bella Blue’s Blue Book Cabaret is back and better than ever at two new (for us) venues. You can now catch Bella and her band of sexy misfits at two locations: Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at the Bourbon Street Pub, and Thursday and Sunday at Gravier Street Social. Come check out our new digs! The stages are lovely, the crowds have been raucous, and Gravier Street Social will be featuring drinks styled and named by the entertainers. Check out all the happenings in front of the velvet curtain.

October in New Orleans.  Is there anything sexier?  Breezy, but still balmy, the air redolent with smells of hot glue and last year’s dusty costumes, dragged out from their closeted confines to be mined for spare parts, or resurrected with a fresh coat of gold spray paint.  That’s right, loves: Halloween, the unofficial holiday of burlesque.
