  • Flamingo A-Go-Go, a new bar and restaurant in the Warehouse District, opened Friday.

Flashy new bar and restaurant Flamingo A-Go-Go (869 Magazine St., 504-577-2202) is now open in the Warehouse District. The latest project from Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts opened Dec. 1.

The massive indoor-outdoor space features a 7,000 square-foot patio decorated with what the owners describe as “mid-century kitsch” decor, which includes life-size games of Connect 4 and Twister, an army flatbed truck that serves as a table seating 24, a 12-foot-by-12-foot mural of flamingos by local artist Becky Fos, and plenty of neon.

Inside, a long bar is equipped with 45 taps pouring a mix of beer, wine and batch cocktails. The “Flocktail” menu includes the Flamingo on a Wire, made with Grey Goose L’Orange, orange juice, elderflower syrup and muddled berries, and the Blue Lightning (served in a fishbowl) made with Sailor Jerry spiced rum, pineapple juice and Blue Curacao.

Drinking appears to be the main appeal, but the restaurant’s full menu includes appetizers such as the Shrimp A-Go-Go, served with a roasted red pepper aioli, macadamia nuts, green onions, grilled pineapple and corn salad. There also are marinated crab claws, queso blanco made with charred poblano peppers and a tuna poke bowl. Entrees range from burgers (the South of the Border comes with chorizo, Chihuahua cheese, grilled poblanos and ranchero verde sauce), to sandwiches (a fried Gulf fish torta), to larger plates like a Jamaican jerk-style chicken served with black beans, collard greens, grilled pineapple and mango salsa.

Flamingo A-Go-Go is open 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily. For more information, visit their website here.
