    We’re coming to New Orleans the weekend of March 3-5 to visit the Carousel Bar and specifically to catch the Lena Prima Show. This dynamic jazz singers has been one of our Las Vegas favorites and we enjoyed her last year at the French Quarter Festival. As for us, she’s worth a trip and a weekend in New Orleans. We predict within a short time she will be New Orleans’ dominent musical songstress. Sue Grace

    I have been going to this lounge since I was 7 years old when my mon and dad broght there to see it, I am now 67 years old and recently went there to see the new renovations, was disappointed, the shooting star gone, the new lounge area was great, the live entertainment too nosiy, I should have gotten my drink and sat in the lobby. This has always been my starting point for going in the quarter and I don’t plan on changing but there is a need to check out the noise level with the live entertainment, it’s not because of my age, but you can not carry on a conversation. Hope you can address my conecerns because I really Love this place

    No better way to start a Saturday night than listening to Robin Barnes at the Carousel Bar! She has a beautiful voice and I had so much fun. Thank you, Hotel Monteleone!

    To whom it may concern:
    I would like to compliment you on having Robin Barnes and the Soul Heirs on your performance list. They are a great addition to the new Carousel Bar. I’ve seen Robin perform all over the city and she is awesome. Her passion clearly shows trhough every performance. Everytime I see her she gets better. She’s the total package; telented and attractive. I love the fact that she performs with her family. I think that is amazing and says something about her character. I’m writing to request that you keep her on the schedule. I’ve brought countless friends to the Carousel Bar to see her and her band perform and they all say the same thing…they have so much fun and don’t want th set to end. I feel she would be a great candidate for headliner on one of your performance nights, especially Sat. Can anyone tell me if she will continue to be on the schedule and if so what night?

    Is there anyone I can speak to with regards to setting up an event by the pool perhaps as a Summer weekly event on Sundays? I am searching for a Hotel/Venue who would like to host a weekly event which would cater to all genres of music mostly dance and fun times!!!

    We were privileged to be present during one of Robin Barnes first performances at the new lounge . The first note out of her mouth was amazing, and thus followed a sultry, jazzy, fun, musical adventure! The crowd was thoroughly entertained all night. I look forward to returning to hear her and enjoy the new elegant bar. It is all a feast for the senses!

    The “new” bar looks fantastic, BUT: where’s the amazing, the wonderful, the spicy and the sweet cocktail mix that used to grace the tables? It was the best and easily half the reason I drag all my tourist friends in here on weekends. Boo to the run-of-the-mill, dry, tedious Gardetto’s mix we were offered. Bring back the spicy-sweet-cajun mix, pleeeeeeeaaaaaase – we beg you!!!!

    [...] Carousel Bar – 214 Royal Street – You definitely don’t have to dress up to drink in the French Quarter but, if you prefer, you can stay classy at Hotel Monteleone’s Carousel Bar, one of the oldest preserved bars in the city. Hemingway, Faulkner, and Capote are reported to have gotten drunk here. Classic cocktail recipes were innovated and invented here. And if that’s not enough, you sit at a rotating bar that looks like an actual carousel! Dress up and go already! Share on Tumblr Pin It [...]

    4 of us are staying @ hotel. We want to see Lena Prima on Friday night May 31st. Do we make reservations there for the Carousel Bar & Lounge.

    May 22nd, 2013 at 11:05 am

    Dear Ms. Simmons,

    Thank you for your recent enquiry. Unfortunately the Carousel Bar & Lounge doesn’t accept advanced reservations. As Lena Prima is a popular performer, we would definately recommend getting to the Carousel Bar in advance of her performance in order to secure a seat.

    We hope you have a wonderful night!
