Flamingo A-Go-Go will have a massive outdoor patio when the bar and restaurant opens at 869 Magazine Street in a few weeks.
A massive restaurant and bar is coming to the Warehouse District later this month, taking over space formerly occupied by Warehouse Grille at 869 Magazine St.
Flamingo A-Go-Go will have wall fountains, a 7,000 square-foot patio, a pergola and a flatbed truck. The casual restaurant and bar concept is the latest project from the expanding Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts empire.
Creole Cuisine CEO Marv Ammari says the spot is, “A place where folks can feel like they can meet, away from the commotion — a gathering place and place for social get-togethers.”
There will be seating for roughly 250 people inside a 7,000 square-foot dining room and then room for another 200 people on the 7,000 square-foot patio. A two-and-a-half ton flatbed truck will be parked in the center of the patio will have an elevated table that will seat 14 to 16 people.
The casual food concept is geared towards smaller plates and sharing, Ammari says. The menu will include burgers, snacks and Gulf fish, among other items. The bar will have 45 taps and also serve wine and batch cocktails.
The owners say they hope to have the restaurant and bar open by Nov. 21.
