New Orleans, LA
The Harrah’s Buffet is located within the heart of the bustling Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans’ downtown Central Business District. MRAID transformed the 1980’s buffet to evoke a fresh and clean eclectic “New Orleans” themed atmosphere with redesigned food service lines, abundant lighting, comfortable seating, carpeting, and artwork. Within the buffet, a bar was added incorporating custom lighting, stone countertops, dark stained wood trim, antiqued mirrors and mosaic tiling to create a sense of place. Other upgrades included the VIP dining area and cashier area. MRAID provided full architecture and interior design, FF&E selections and specifications for this renovated buffet. The interior renovation was successfully completed while the adjacent casino and other venues were in operation.
