John Austin tickles the ivories at this piano bar from Wednesday through Saturday, but the real attraction is the Carousel Bar & Lounge itself at Hotel Monteleone. It's a carousel and really does revolve - all the time. The music goes until late and the cocktails served are out of this world like the "Truffletini" which is a mix of Bailey's Irish Cream with liqueurs. The ambiance has a slight feel of a Moulin Rouge setting, with bold lighting and motifs.
Wer sich gerade auf der Bourbon Street befindet, wundgelaufene Füße und genug von Perlen, Geschrei und wildem Chaos hat, braucht nur ein paar Schritte weiter zu gehen, um diese gemütliche Bar mit entspannter Atmosphäre zu finden. Die Bar befindet sich in einer ehemaligen Schmiede und Schmugglerzuflucht des späten 18. Jahrhunderts. In dem Stein- und Ziegelbau befindet sich ein dunkler, nur von Kerzen erhellter Raum. Im Hintergrund der Bar begleitet ein alter Mann seinen leisen Gesang selbst am Flügel. Er spielt solche bekannten Gassenhauer wie "Piano Man" and "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling", die man auch noch betrunken mitsingen kann. Die Getränkepreise sind im Vergleich mit anderen Lokalen in der Bourbon Street nedrig und es wird nie Eintritt verlangt.

Es gibt einen Hauptgrund, in diese Bar zu gehen: der weltbekannte Hand Grenade. Diese neongrüne Spezialität ist der stärkste Drink in ganz New Orleans, und er schmeckt auch so. Die Bar selbst ist nichts weiter als eine Huldigung an ihren Drink. Große ausgestopfte Hand Grenades hängen an den Wänden und an der Decke - leuchtendes Neon im schwarzen Licht. Die Idee dahinter ist die Ähnlichkeit zum "Caribbean Pirate's Cove" (die Barkeeper tragen ab und zu auch Seglermützen), aber das meiste davon ist ein Marketingwerkzeug zur Selbstdarstellung. Die Livemusik liegt im Stil der Vorgruppen für Jimmy Buffet. Obwohl die Bar eine gewisse BErühmtheit erlangt hat, reicht es aus sich einen Drink zu bestellen, um sich anschließend wieder auf den Weg zu machen.
