Mardi Gras

GALLERY: Greasing of the Poles 2019 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel

We’re in the home stretch ya’ll!

Each year at the Royal Sonesta, the Greasing of the Poles is the French Quarter’s kickoff to Mardi Gras weekend.

The ritual keeps drunk revelers from deciding they want to climb the hotels front support poles to get to the balcony, which offers a pretty sweet view of Bourbon Street.
