GAMING AND RETAIL
- Bossier City, LA
Situated on 19 acres on the banks of the Red River, the award winning Margaritaville Resort Casino in Bossier City, LA provides its guests with a comfortable atmosphere and memorable entertainment experience. The design inspires a feeling akin to being whisked away to a lush tropical island where guests can relax and escape from everyday worries.
Continuing the exploration of adapting a brand founded on over the top thematic elements into a more refined setting, The McBride Company paid special attention to vegetation. Tropical vegetation is very evocative of the island lifestyle and it is used liberally in the common areas to subtly bring the Margaritaville brand into an upscale gaming resort lobby.
The challenge in designing a Margaritaville branded casino was to create an atmosphere that retained the fun, laid back escapism culture so engrained into the brand, but one that also presented itself in a sophisticated way for the more serious gambling clientele. This was accomplished by hinting at the Margaritaville brand through subtle accents and refined tropical finishes.
Multiple food and beverage options were designed throughout the casino. They range from casual to fine dining venues, to buffets; and beverage offerings including numerous bars, coffee shops and a poolside wet bar.
