Judy's Velvet Lounge

The "velvet lounge" part of Judy's Velvet Lounge is no understatement: The lush, colorful fabric covers everything from the ceiling to the bar. More cabaret than tavern, this oasis in the middle of River City Casino is one of only two bars inside the actual casino area. It's the perfect place for weary gamblers to take a break and enjoy their drinks in comfy, velvet-wrapped (of course!) swivel chairs. Large TVs line the walls, while one huge screen hangs down in front of the stage, making it almost impossible to miss that big game. Entertainment (including St. Louis favorites Well Hungarians, Big Bad VooDoo Daddy and various DJs) performs weekends on the oversized stage at the back of the large circular room. The circular theme plays out throughout the space, including the mirror in the middle of the ceiling and the massive chandelier above the entrance, giving the space a unified and luxurious feel. The all-white, well-lit bar stretches across almost the entire length of the second level above the stage/dance floor area, attracting video poker enthusiasts who like to have it all: drinks at hand, sports on TV and their game at their fingertips.
