The Apple Barrel on Frenchmen Street looks like the blueprint for any “New Orleans-style bar” that you’ve ever been to elsewhere. There’s random artwork of musicians, money is stapled to the wall above the bar, and everything sort of looks secondhand. But it’s also one of the most low-key bars on the street, and since it’s smaller than the rest, the shows here feel way more intimate than anywhere else on Frenchmen.

The Carousel Bar & Lounge

The Carousel Bar at Hotel Monteleone is indeed a bar on a moving carousel, and while it can feel a bit gimmicky, you should still grab a drink here.
