I admit in all my visits to NOLA, I have never sat at the actual carousel bar. I have watched many a Saturday football game in the rest of the bar, though. Pretty, friendly people all cheering for their favorite teams. While we where there, our small couch grouping changed four times. We met folks from Alabama, Ole Miss, A&M (boo!) LSU. Friendliest people in the world, all joined in their love for college football. In the lobby, multiple wedding parties were gathering and we even had a Second Line come through with one couple that just got married. The service was solid, the drinks well done. It's an event any time you are there but you can't miss a Saturday afternoon during football season.
