Fodor's 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.
