British Invasion at the Carousel Bar & Lounge
On Friday, January 17 and Saturday, January 18, the famous Carousel Bar and Criollo Restaurant will be transported back to the early 1960’s with Beatles inspired drink specials, menus and entertainment. Beatles fans will flock to the Carousel Bar & Lounge to hear local favorite 11-piece band Jubilation perform renditions of top Beatles’ hits starting at 9PM. Mixologists spinning at the bar will whip up four Beatles-themed cocktails – Long Tall Sally, Day Tripper, Hard Day’s Night, and Lovely Rita –at $7.50 each. Party-goers will receive complementary John Lennon-inspired sunglasses, while supplies last. On both nights, guest judges will select the top two attendees dressed in Beatles-era costumes to receive a staycation at the Hotel Monteleone.
British Invasion at Criollo Restaurant New Orleans
The British Invasion is also taking over the Hotel Monteleone’s Criollo Restaurant. Executive Chef Randy Buck has crafted a special Beatles-inspired menu for the occasion. Menu highlights include, “All We Are Saying Is Give Peas a Chance” soup, which includes spring peas, asparagus, and prosciutto chiffonade; a “Strawberry Fields” salad, which is comprised of grilled tangerine, house mozzarella, speck ham, white balsamic, and mint puree; and “While My Grouper Gently Weeps” entrée featuring grilled black grouper, butter poached shrimp, scallops, hearts of palm, and citrus & tarragon. Fans in costume will also receive a complementary bottle of wine with dinner.

To wrap up the evening, both nights, Hotel Monteleone will feature a Beatles memorabilia display by Vintage329 featuring a signed copy of John Lennon’s book “In His Own Write,” an Abbey Road street sign signed by Paul McCartney, a vintage Beatles article signed by Paul McCartney, and many more Beatles related mementos.
British Invasion Facebook Contest
To get Beatles fans in a frenzy, the Hotel Monteleone will be hosting a trivia contest on Facebook leading up to the big event. Hotel Monteleone’s Facebook fans will be put to test for the chance to win one of three staycations in New Orleans featuring a one-night stay at the Hotel Monteleone (Sunday – Thursday, based on availability and subject to black out dates) along with dinner for two at Criollo Restaurant.
