Cypress Bayou Casino, near the Southern coastline of Louisiana, is one of the establishments that have led the state to be called the Las Vegas of the South. More than just a gamblers’ paradise, the casino takes a cue from neighboring New Orleans and really gets into the party spirit. The casino has ten restaurants, and a buzzing nightclub, the Cypress Bayou Casino ROX, undoubtedly one of the trendiest casino entertainment venues in the state.
Like many Louisiana casinos, the Cypress Bayou Casino is owned by Native Americans and is open 24 hours a day. Cypress Bayou Casino gaming is of top quality, with loads of machines and tables, and a large gaming floor. More than 230,000 square feet of gaming space holds 1,350 gaming machines and fifty-nine table and poker games. It provides all the favorites offered by casinos in the state, including craps, let it ride, roulette, blackjack, 3 card poker and Caribbean stud poker. Those who take their gambling seriously will find a hearty welcome, as Cypress Bayou Casino gaming offers high-stakes games and stages weekly tournaments. Those who are regulars of the Cypress Bayou Casino gaming scene can join the Casino Club, and receive benefits such as places in special drawings, complimentary drinks, and reserved tables.
The Cypress Bayou Casino is famed for its colorful, lively atmosphere, and cares as much about entertainment as it does about its gambling space. The Cypress Bayou Casino ROX is where the party is. Music concerts, entertainment shows, and live DJs invite guests to unwind and dance the night away. With a stage, bar, VIP area and DJ booth, the Cypress Bayou Casino ROX is a nightclub with a twist and is without a doubt one of the premier casino entertainment venues in the state. The Pavilion, a smaller venue, also stages bands and shows, and hosts regularly invitation-only Club parties, for those who are members of the Casino Club. Two bars complete the casino’s lifestyle experience: a drink and dining bar, and an entertainment bar that invites you to play multi-game video poker while sipping a late-night cocktail and watching live music. Add the casino resort’s ten restaurants to the mix, including Cajun, Asian, Mexican and good old American food, and you realize that Cypress Bayou Casino really is a world within a world. Even if you are not a gambler, this casino is great to visit to enjoy the fine restaurants.
Charenton, where the casino is based, is on the South Coast of Louisiana, while the nearest major city is Lafayette. Visitors with time on their hands can easily visit a host of nearby casinos. To the north, Baton Rouge has a collection of great casinos, while the journey to New Orleans to the East would be well worth the travel, not just for the casinos, but also for the historical sights and attractions and thrilling nightlife. The Charenton area itself has a limited number of things to do. It is the last remaining community of the Chitimacha Indians, who run the casino, as well as the town’s heritage museum. Outside of the town, nature lovers can explore the nearby Attakapas Island Wildlife Area. There are some hotels in the Charenton, and an RV park next to the casino, with electricity, water, and cable TV. While Charenton has a charm of its own, the Cypress Bayou Casino is definitely the center of the action.
