Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts has today opened its massive Flamingo A-Go-Go in the Warehouse District.
As per a release, Flamingo A-Go-Go carries a “Rat Pack” throwback theme, with plenty of mid-century kitsch. The building — at the corner of Magazine and St. Joseph Streets — underwent extensive renovations and includes plenty of out-there art (12x12-foot flamingo mural or table made of a military troop transport truck, anyone?) to ensure that the spot will be something of an Instagram destination.
The team behind Flamingo assumes the main draw will be the space’s extensive (7,000-square-foot) outdoor space and huge bar area, which has 45 pulls of beers, wines and even cocktails on tap. There is food, though — the opening menu is full of flatbreads, small plates and other typical shareables like onion rings, calamari and queso.
Eater got word of the forthcoming bar and restaurant earlier in November, reporting that Flamingo A-Go-Go would be opening in the spot that previously housed Warehouse Grille and, before Katrina hit, Polynesian Joe’s.
Flamingo A-Go-Go serves lunch and dinner daily, and stays open until 2am every night.
