My Love of the Carousel
I couldn't contain myself with taking some photos, or two, three, okay like 30, lol, with a return visit before I left the city, just too cool. We sat at the bar, ordered a cocktail, by the time we were finished, the carousel made a full turn, of course I wasn't ready to leave, so I had to order another cocktail, just to make another round around the carousel, lol
The Carousel bar is the only revolving bar in New Orleans, for decades, it has lured guests to spin on the 25-seat, bright circus-clad Merry-Go-Round, installed in 1949 and overlooks famed Royal Street in the French Quarter, a place where many of its patrons/riders’ have come up with their most creative ideas and inspirations, and I can see why, the same thing happened for me.
The bar is called; The Carousel Bar at the Hotel Monteleone located at:
The historic Hotel Monteleone is located at 214 Royal Street, New Orleans, LA 70130-2201.
I'd recommend a stop at the Carousel Bar for a drink or two and experience the magic while you are visiting New Orleans, my trip has inspired a new set of carnival/circus jewelry and artwork, coming soon.
Have a wonderful start of the week and hope you get inspired, if you are on instagram follow some of my in the moment adventures and works!
