Tour of Big Night Entertainment Group properties at Foxwoods
We start with the Scorpion Bar in the busy entertainment district of Foxwoods Resort Casino. At night, dancers gyrate on a long table in center, but before that there's Mexican food and Gothic elements. One of the company's founders found the above cattle heads out West and ordered several for the bar area.
Above right near the bar is a wheel that is spun during the evening to create a special such as $4 tacquitos or $5 chicken quesadillas.
Another design element: Above the patio door, apparently more artistic than religious, are 100 crosses.
Chips and guacamole at the bar, which includes distinctive furniture including custom wooden stools.
On to Red Lantern, which sits atop the dark/late-night-pounding club atmosphere (with bottle service) of the nightclub Shrine at Foxwoods. BNEG's Shrine features more "club" music where Scorpion Bar's vibe is more fun tunes (also played loud of course). Red Lantern offers Asian food and fun drinks (above, with several straws this day) and a tasty sushi sampler platter below. Mai tais are very good, and the lobster rangoon is a must.
The High Rollers casino bowling restaurant offers a very good time,
whether you order from the bar in the central lobby or get table service
to one of the tony lanes. All the BNEG properties have specials
depending on the day. Below, a finger food sampler sits in front of a few lush desserts as bowling takes place on the intimate lanes.
BNEG's Boston properties are Red Lantern Boston, Gem and Empire.
