We dropped by about 4:30 PM for the 5 PM show and the place was already full. It is a great room with comfortable lookin chairs at the tables. Learn from us, go EARLY to get situated. Sorry we missed the fill experience....

Go when Carousel first opens on the weekend to get a spot. It is touristy, but it is unique and a lot of fun!

A revolving bar carousel? Yup it is! But if you want to wait all night to belly up to this bar it might be never lol! Stopped in for drinks hoping to get a ride but the bar was over flowing! Still had a few...More

The bar located inside Hotel Monteleone is a must for best drinks and a nice crowd. You will be surrounded by professionals not a bunch of drunks that you will see on Bourbon Street. Get there early as the carousel fills up fast but there...More

A great place to enjoy an adult beverage while riding around the carousel. It doesn't move very quickly so you shouldn't get dizzy. Go early in the day to hope for a seat for a few spins. On the weekend the place is packed. There...More

We went for drinks before dinner and we had a blast. We were lucky on finding 2 seats at the bear so we lived the whole experience of the carousel moving. Service is OK but is understandable because they are super super busy so just...More

This is a very busy place (it was NYE), but also, everyone says you have to check it out. Why? Neat concept with a bar that rotates in the middle of the room, just like a carousel. The ceiling and walls are embellished like a...More

The Lounge is the main bar of the Hotel Monteleone. If you aren’t staying here, then you will know of this lounge because the circular bar itself is done in an old-style circus carousel motif and the dozen or so affixed bar stool backsides are...More

We stayed in the Hotel Monteleone and could never get a seat at the bar, but the drinks were excellent as was the service. It is always crowded, so be prepared to wait. However, the drinks and service make up for the wait.

French Quarter
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

Yes but they can't sit at the bar. There is an open seating area where the live music is played and this is where kids may sit. Don't miss it !! :)

It is a beautiful, historic 'bar'. I would be comfortable in saying casual, to dressy casual, if you were going in the evening. But, honestly, anything really is okay in French Quarter...especially if you are going to just... More
