novel rotating bar. if you are prone to motion sickness, you may not want to sit at the bar because it rotates. if you are fine with that, try and sit at the bar as it is pretty cool to get a 360 degree view of this fun hotel bar. the drinks, i think, are affordable (compared to bars in other cities, that is) and the bartenders, who could get very busy, are still friendly and move fast. it amazes me how they can remember where you are and what you ordered especially because you are rotating (albeit slowly). during happy hour, they do serve some free appetizers -- although the food is not spectacular, it is something, and besides, you go for the drinks and not the food.
People looking for a quiet break from the more boisterous Quarter bars can find it inside the historic Hotel Monteleone..
This spacious establishment derives its name from its centerpiece: A wood bar made up like a carousel that slowly rotates. Muted TVs and piano music serve as the backdrop for locals and tourists to sip on specialty martinis, wine and Sazeracs. Candlelit, marbletop tables and plush booths provide patrons with ample seating, while large windows provide a view of historic Royal Street.
