At the Country Club in New Orleans, you can experience what it’s like to party with your clothes off — literally.

First, you’ll enter a big house with a bar and numerous rooms. Not too many people hang out inside, however, as outside you’ll find an in-ground pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, bar, and clothing-optional atmosphere.

You’ll pay $8 to go into the back (it’s $2 extra if you want to rent a towel), and no photos are allowed once you exit the house. While I expected it to be similar to a wild spring break experience, the truth is it was really chill and subdued.

It’s mostly locals, many from the LGBTQ+ community, and nobody will gawk at you if you decide to walk around naked or topless.

Once you get used to it, it’s actually pretty easy to go up to strangers as you would at a normal bar and have a conversation.

In fact, it’s almost as if people are trying really hard to act natural and not stare, as I actually get more leers when I go to clubs fully clothed. It was a really liberating experience and something I highly recommend when visiting New Orleans.

What’s also great about The Country Club is it provides a completely different experience than what you’ll find in the bustling French Quarter.

It’s located in a quiet residential neighborhood, making it somewhat of a local secret. It’s also meant to be a “home away from home,” and you’ll literally feel like you’re hanging out at a friend’s house, albeit one that doesn’t mind having dozens of naked strangers lounging by their pool.

Along with offering beer, wine, and cocktails, the Country Club has a restaurant serving American bistro-style food prepared with local ingredients.

If you’re there after hours, they offer a late-night menu until 12:30am.

The Country Club is located at 634 Louisa Street in the Bywater Neighborhood.

    My wife and I like to visit clothing optional properties when we travel. What are some other clothing optional properties in New Orleans that we can stay for a few days?
