Carousel Bar Review

A favorite New Orleans drinking destination since 1949, the revolving bar has served the likes of Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, and Ernest Hemingway. A recent renovation added extra space for a second bar, more tables, and a stage that hosts free shows by local musicians Wednesday through Saturday.

    Carousel Revolving Bar Review

    Went in the early afternoon. Rode the Carousel Bar like tourists (which we were). Good service and quality cocktails. We had a Vieux Carre Cocktail. This was invented here in 1938, and very well made.
    A must-go for vintage cocktail enthusiasts.
