The Big Easy
The City That Care Forgot... sailing two times a day out of the Port of Palm Beach. The Big Easy... an offshore gaming boat with three restaurants, five bars, a blues club, sports book and 35,000 square feet of gaming that brings alive the spirit, the food and music, the excitement of New Orleans to the Atlantic Ocean...

 

Neptune and his Court greet the entering players. "Hurricanes", a dueling piano bar is off to the right. "Swimps", entered between the oyster columns offers a celebration of creole and cajun seafoods.

 

 

 

One deck up, "Bar Absinthe" serves guests playing at table games and in the Sports Book. "Po-Boys", towards the stern of the ship, offers a menu featuring the delicious, humble "Gimme a dressed Buster Shorty" food of the New Orleans po-boy shops and the landmark Beignet Cafes. Eating in New Orleans makes me quiver with pleasure and one of the greatest pleasures in designing the Big Easy was programming and designing all of the food service... mix, menus, service as well as the spaces themselves. On the top deck, open to the ocean air, "Gators", straight out of the Quarter serves up bistro food from an open grill and the funkiest music NOLA can offer. "Storyville", a private lounge for special guests is located forward, behind the Gator's stage.
