The Burgundy Bar at the Saint Hotel, New Orleans.

The Burgundy Bar at the Saint Hotel, New Orleans

New Orleans’ newest modern hotel made its debut early in 2012. The Saint Hotel is located on the corner of Burgundy Street  and Canal Street, and its signature bar, The Burgundy Bar, lies along Burgundy Street; hence the name (it’s not pronounced as the color burgundy, it is the New Orleans version of the pronunciation)

The hotel’s theme is good against evil and it’s bar features the 7 deadly sins as their signature cocktails.  I got to photograph Rachael making a Pride – The pursuit of excessive  love for self (Belvedere Vodka, St Germain, Lime juice and some other great ingredients); I just can say, go try it!

New Orleans: The Magical Carousel Bar

Julie Sterling

I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans last week for the Imaging USA 2012 conference, and whoa did I learn a lot there! With 3-4 daily sessions over three days (starting at 7AM – yikes!), a huge trade show, and fun parties, it was an experience. I was beyond thrilled to be able to stay a few more days and explore the city, too. I have a million photos to share, but one of my favorite places was definitely the Carousel Bar.

The history in New Orleans is incredibly rich, and the Carousel Bar fits right in. It is in the French Quarter, but is eons away from raucous Bourbon Street in style and atmosphere. I felt like I was transported to another time as soon as I stepped through the doors of the Hotel Monteleone and into this gem of a bar.

The bar really does rotate!…
