The Carousel Bar: 70 Years of Spinning

One of New Orlean's most infamous bars

Welcome to New Orleans, where bourbon goes in the milk and carousels double as bars! The French Quarter is full of unique experiences around every corner. Hotel Monteleone’s Carousel Bar is no exception, attracting both tourists and locals alike.

For seven decades, the 25-seat revolving bar has been quenching the thirst of thousands of guests, luminaries, singers, and authors. Powered by a motor pushing a single revolution per 15 minutes. Patrons can enjoy the elaborate décor of the swanky historic hotel and at the same time engage in stellar people watching all while sipping on impeccable cocktails.

Sazerac, Bourbon Milk Punch, and Pimm’s cup… are just a few of the craft cocktails to try. The Blue Crab & Crawfish Beignets are a must try and no night out in New Orleans is complete without live music!

The Carousel Bar is a staple of historical character with no trip to New Orleans complete without a ride. Vogue Living recently named it one of the Top 20 Bars in the World.
