The Balinese Room
Vegas Before Vegas
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997, then utterly destroyed by Hurricane Ike a scant eleven years later, the Balinese Room was once the most celebrated nightclub—and illegal gambling establishment—in America, the jewel of the Gulf Coast.
This year An Evening at The Bryan pays homage to this lost yet legendary icon and the two enterprising brothers, Sam and Rose Maceo, whose vision and verve created it.
