New Orleans is known for many things…from ghosts, to pirates, this city is certainly mysterious. In this graphic, we have listed 3 of the most iconic New Orleans hotel bars. If you are thinking about visiting the city, these 3 are must visits.
The Carousel Bar
Located inside Hotel Monteleone in the French Quarter, this bar is one of the oldest in New Orleans. The hotel is a historic landmark and is even a member of the Historic Hotels of America. The Carousel Piano Bar & Lounge is the only revolving bar in New Orleans. This 25 seat bar is beautifully decorated and spins at one full rotation every 15 minutes.
The Sazerac Bar
Located inside the Roosevelt Hotel in the Central Business District, this bar opened its doors in 1938. Named after President Roosevelt to honor the building of the Panama Canal, this hotel is a major part of New Orleans history. After many updates to its aesthetic, the Sazerac Bar was eventually restored to its look during the 1940s. Interestingly enough, the Roosevelt Hotel has exactly 504 rooms, 504 also being the area code for New Orleans telephones.
The Victorian Lounge
This lounge is located in the famous Columns Hotel on St. Charles Avenue. Originally a 19th century mansion, the Columns has housed many venues in its day. What is now the Victorian Room was once the main dining room. The house was commissioned by a cigar manufacturer and often large business deals were made in the house. Located right on the streetcar line, the Victorian Lounge is minutes away from the French Quarter.
