We Had A Blast On Fat Tuesday!!

Image

Atlanta residents could not have gotten closer to an authentic New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration than our “Mardi Gras Madness” on Fat Tuesday.

Our patrons were not disappointed as our staff pulled out all the stops to make our’s the most talked about, and remembered party around!

As soon as guests entered the beautiful double doors, they were exposed to all the glitz and glamour that one would expect from such a party, and we took the lavishness to an all new level. Everywhere you looked there were vibrantly colored decorations – from the streamers on the walls, to the ornaments on the ceiling. One could not help but be in awe of our costumed employees and patrons, the smell of bona fide Creole grub, beads passed out from all corners, and the extraordinary sounds from the Crescent City Connection – the traditional New Orleans street band we hired to entertain the guests for the evening.

Taking in the entirety of the scene, it’s no wonder that our guests stayed for hours to dance their hearts out, order plenty of famous New Orleans style drinks, and second helpings of our famous Creole crawfish, shrimp, and of course the delicious and infamous King Cake.

Sisters Marion and Kelli Welsh, New Orleans natives and 6-year Mardi Gras celebration attendees, say “This is our home away from home, as well as many other New Orleans transplants in Atlanta after Katrina. If we’re not in New Orleans on Fat Tuesday, we make plans to celebrate at here.” They say their favorite tradition is our King Cake, served every year as a special dessert. They also say that we offer the best Mardi Gras party in the Atlanta area – never again will they go anywhere else to celebrate!
