*Schedule is subject to change


  1. 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

  8. 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
    Chris Dohmann

  9. Can you please tell me your music line up for March 10-15th?

  10. I was there for Mardi Gras and heard Eudora Evans and Band….this girl was the BEST entertainment I have seen by far! Hope to see her again!

  11. Can I bring my 11 year old daughter to hear music at the Carousel Bar?

    Kind regards.

  14. Dear Richard,

    Thank you for your comment and kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed Eudora Evans and Band.

    Kind regards.

  15. Dear Millie,

    Thank you for your question. Unfortunately children are not allowed in the bar after 6:00pm when we stop serving food.

    Kind regards.

  16. We’ll be staying there Mar. 5th and 6th. what acts are scheduled? Is Lena Prima there? JW

  17. Dear Mr. Worden,

    Thank you for your enquiry. Entertainment is scheduled on March 6, the George French Quartet with special guest Ellen Smith will be performing that evening from 8:00pm – 12:00am.

    Kind regards.

  18. 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!

  19. 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?

  20. 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!!!

  21. 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!

  22. 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!!!!

  23. When will the cal be out for October 2012? We will be there the first weekend and looking for that info. Thank you

  24. Hey Guys, awesome site!! Have you guys thought of using co2 special effects, like the ones here: unless you already use it! Ive seen it at a few other places and it looks pretty kool!!

  25. Can you send me contact info for booking at Carousel Bar. Marie Long?
    I am a boogie woogie/New Orleans piano player/vocalist, I have played during Jazzfest at the Carousel as part of their Jazzy Jams series.
    I will be touring in New Orleans week before Mardi Gras.
    Thank you,
    Mitch Woods
