1. Hotel Monteleone

Established in 1886, this crown jewel of Louisiana is a proud landmark to the city, as well as a member of the Historic Hotels of America.
Enjoy the French Quarter inside and outside of Hotel Monteleone. But the best entertainment of all is the hotel’s very own Carousel Bar & Lounge. As a carousel lights up the interior of this space, you and your loved one can take a spin on the 25-seat, bright Merry-Go-Round as you sip on specialty cocktails made with local favorites.
