New Feature!



The Carousel Bar is an infamous stopping point in the revered Monteleone Hotel on Royal Street (French Quarter). Built in 1949, the 25 seat bar spins its patrons around as they sip a drink from the endless cocktail menu. Non revolving seating is available for those drinkers who'd rather stay stationary when they take down libations. The Carousel Bar has a vintage feel, taking its guests back to a more formal time. Musical performances are the norm here, and can be caught during the later segment of the bar's 11-2 a.m. operating hours. If you happen to arrive at the right time, you may get lucky enough to sample complimentary hors d'oeuvres from the Carousel kitchen.
