We always make sure we stop at the Carousel Bar in the Hotel Monteleone at least once during our vacation. The drinks are delicious, nice atmosphere, friendly bar staff, just A+++. The carousel spins just enough to make it a cool concept but not too...More

Great place to have a drink. There is a full size carousel which moves very slowly as you sit back and enjoy. It's located inside the Hotel Monteleone.

The atmosphere of this bar is really nice, as compared to the crazy ones on Bourbon Street. We didn't get a seat at the carousel, but it was pretty to look at. Their kitchen closed at 9 PM.

Love this place for people watching (get a window seat), gabbing at the bar or just relaxing with one of their premium cocktails (try the mojitos!). Wonderful character and ambiance. Can be very busy though and hard to get a seat in this popular spot!

This bar is a one of a kind and you must try it while in the area. The only downfall is that it is always packed and difficult to get a seat because it is so popular. The drinks were very good and the bartenders...More

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

You need to be there when it opens. Get in line before 11:00 am, otherwise you will need to wait until a bar stool opens up.
