Best Hotel Bars in New Orleans

Where just about nobody knows your name

(page 2 of 5)



A BIG IDEA

The Carousel Bar & Lounge
Hotel Monteleone
214 Royal St., 523-3341, HotelMonteleone.com/CarouselBar


A one-quarter horsepower motor rotates the main bar one revolution every 15 minutes, and that’s the way it’s been since 1949. It’s been the source of literary inspiration: Ernest Hemingway loved the place, as did Truman Capote (whose mother lived in the hotel during her pregnancy), Tennessee Williams, William Faulkner and scores of New Orleanians and visitors alike.

Following an extensive renovation in 2011, the amusement park-themed carousel today feels fresh and renewed, still serving the iconic classic house drink, the Vieux Carré cocktail, and the best Pisco Sour in town. Live music can be heard almost every evening.
