Hotel Monteleone, 214 Royal St,
New Orleans, LA 70130
Hop on a magical drinking tour! Located in the Monteleone Hotel, this historic bar has hosted quite some characters, including: Hemingway, Capote and Faulkner –who all got to ride the carousel. If the waiting line is too long (some days you just can’t wait for a drink), we recommend that you order a Fleur de Lis cocktail (Hendrick’s Gin, St. Germaine, Lemon Juice, Cucumber, Ginger Ale, Soda Water for $12) at the lounge; (the carousel made us sick, anyway).
