It was fun sitting at the revolving bar, but difficult to get a seat. You should try it once though, while on your trip to New Orleans.

Service on the floor seats was very, very slow – they could have made much more money from my party / conference if they had been more attentive.

I was impressed with the hotel/bar security as we witnessed a drunken incident at the bar – it was handled very professionally and discreetly by the staff.

While the drinks were a little over-priced, it should be on your “top ten list” of things to do in NOLA.

The bar is fun, the seats and bar revolve with a carousel theme. Service is slow, the single bartender hopping.

We loved this bar. So cool to sit for a few hours each afternoon, talk to other travelers and locals. Bar staff are awesome, loved the cocktails.

We stopped in here on Fat Tuesday and had drinks with many of the locals who had been in parades earlier in the day. On recommendation of others, we order the gin fizz - and while I am not generally a fan of gin, this was a sublime cocktail. As you enjoy your beverage, the bar slowly rotates. It is wonderful as your view as changes and the people watching as folks go by the window is a treat, too.

Yes the bar moves. No it is not a good idea if you are prone to motion sickness. Bartenders are very friendly and will make you a good drink. Prices are high, although that should be expected.
