“A Genuine Treat - Not To Be Missed - The Real New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

What a great insight into the heyday of the real New Orleans of yesteryear!

The sight of this attraction when you arrive is a real treat and not to be missed.

Be prepared to have a wait to sit at the revolving bar as there is a limited amount of seating but take the time to wait it out!

We opted to have Manhattans ans a Carousel Bar standard called a vieux carre and were surprised b the generous portions served by a bartender that knows how to mix a perfect drink!

The best part was that the drinks are not overpriced and the service was FAST!

Make sure to ask the bartender how they get in and out of the bar as it is a surprise!

“Great spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

I like going to the Carousel Bar to get away from Bourbon Street for a little while. It is a great change of pace from the craziness going on down the street.

“Beautiful Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Really a beautiful bar. So unique with a lot of charm. Bartenders were very kind and the drinks were great. Definitely something you want to see while in NOLA. Never have seen another bar like it!

“lively enteratainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Great place to meet friends for a drink in in French Quarter or before dinner. Bar is quite the site. Who'd ever think a real carousel sans horses as a bar. Very NOLA.
