Before we arrived in New Orleans, we had read about the Carousel Bar. People said it was amazing and definitely a must see. I have to say, we were slightly disappointed. After the craziness of Bourbon Street, we made our way over to the Carousel Bar, which is inside the Hotel Monteleone. It is just a bar area (that is not very big and was extremely crowded) that has a carousel theme on top of the bar, and the bar spins. By spins, I mean slowly. VERY slowly. I hardly even noticed it. Since there was no space to sit, we ended up leaving quickly and going somewhere else. I would skip this unless you have a huge desire to see it.
