The old world charm of the hotel extends into the bar which rotates as you have your drink. There is also other comforabel seating around the room. The Jazz group we heard was easy listening and entertaining. We would recommend you give it a try.

Neat place, went one afternoon while exploring the French Quarter. We were lucky enough to get a seat at the bar, signature drinks were very good. It is in a hotel lobby so be prepared for children, there was one running circles around the bar...More

We dropped in for a drink simply to people watch and see the rotating bar. Been there. Done that. The hotel itself is very attractive and a step up in atmosphere from the likes of the Marriott where we stayed.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port

The Carousel does not have dueling Piano's. It's a great bar and does have music. The bar you are thinking of is Pat O' Brien's on St. Peter St. between Royal St. and Bourbon St. 5pm Mon.-Wed. and 2pm Thurs.-Sun.
