The Carousel Bar inside of the Hotel Monteleone in the French Quarter is probably my favorite bar in the city. While the cocktails are extraordinary, it is the novelty of this place that really sets it apart. The name of the bar is not a joke--above the bartenders is a ring of light bulbs that looks like a carousel at a fair. The bar slowly moves in a circle, with the patrons moving around the bar and the bartenders remaining in the same spot. It is by no means a fast moving ride; it moves slowly enough that you may not even notice the movement until you look up and realize you’re on the other side of the bar, but in the same seat!
