The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (known by its nickname, Jazz Fest) is an incredible, immersive festival, but it can also be exhausting – full days of music out in the elements can test even the most seasoned festival goers. Once you’ve spent all day outside festing, you’ll want to relax indoors with a cold cocktail in hand. That’s why we’re pleased to revive our annual Jazzy Jam free live music series, happening every night after Jazz Fest in The Carousel Bar & Lounge.

Unwind in the elegant atmosphere of our bar and treat yourself to a full bar bites menu, robust wine list, or a craft cocktail. While food and beverages are always important, the real draw of Jazzy Jam is the music.

Hotel Monteleone's Jazzy Jam music series will feature "New Orleans Songbird" Robin Barnes, recently named "Favorite New Orleans Musician" by New Orleans Magazine.
