A New Orleans Bar With a Story
“Best Pimm’s Cup I’ve ever had…was a work of art. You can imagine this being the place that Don Draper would have frequented had he lived in NOLA.”
“There’s something about sitting at a slowly spinning bar while sipping cocktails that is really, really fun. It helps that the cocktails are great and made with love by amazing bartenders.”
The Carousel Lounge
AN ENTERTAINING DESTINATION
Take a seat and relax in our elegant lounge
Like the cocktails he expertly crafts, Marvin Allen has a mix of talents. He is the Carousel Bar’s head mixologist, resident historian, and a beloved member of the Hotel Monteleone family.
He started his tenure behind the Carousel Bar in 2002 and has since played an instrumental role in New Orleans’ cocktail culture. He helped revive the Vieux Carré cocktail, helped Tales of the Cocktail take shape, and authored “Magic in a Shaker: A Year of Spirited Libations.”
If you spot him serving up perfectly-mixed Sazeracs at the Carousel Bar, be sure to grab a seat. You’re in for a treat from the best in the business.
