Been here a few times. Great place for your group to start the night off. Travis was the guy who served me at the back bar. Makes a mean drink. Tip him well.

We were intrigued and stopped in, but it was so crowded there was no place to sit or stand in the room. To get a seat at the carousel itself would be a miracle. We were underwhelmed by the carousel. Thought customers would be sitting on horses or tigers or some such thing, but no. Turns very slowly, which makes... More

Great place to grab a drink, listen to some music and meet people. The bar spins in a circle, so if you aren't standing on it completely, you may feel a bit unbalanced. It's probably not you, but the bar itself, maybe... unless you've had a few too many yourself! On the weekend nights, this place can get packed, so... More

We went for a beverage before dinner. I had seen a show about the bar on Boozetraveler & wanted to check it out. We were able to grab a table & ordered 2 cocktails & a wine. The place was very busy as was our server. The carousel is very pretty & works & fully revolves about once every 20... More

Definitely a must visit during your stay in NOLA! I am from here and it was my first time visiting. My friend couldnt believe the carousel was actually moving. Drink prices were reasonable...can be crowded so you may not get to sit at the carousel. Jazz music plays in the background.

Terrific lounge bar with fabulous jazz all night. This is in the Monteleoe Hotel, and its very popular with guests and locals as well. The jazz group was great, with a terrific singer and excellent musicians. Noise level ws very high.

Made a stop here for a drink and see what it looks like after we had dinner. The carousel is nice but the people around it are terrible. They act like teens, even if they were in their 40's and 50's !!! We got lucky to have a little table near by the bar. Service was very slow!!! Won't be... More

You gotta go here at least once when in NOLA - I mean it's a freakin' rotating Carousel bar inside a swanky hotel, what's not to love? Drinks are good, if a little pricey and depending on time of night / time of year you might have to wait a little to get a seat on the carousel but it's... More
