With a 10,000 square foot restaurant called the New River Storehouse, 40 exotic floating houseboat hotel rooms docked at the edge of Marina Bay’s famous 200 slip marina. Marina Bay personified the glamorous, luxurious South Florida lifestyle. In addition to being a favorite haunt of celebrities, Marina Bay was home to the Surfside 6 floating houseboats that were seen on the TV series Flipper. Houseboats that were built on the Marina Bay site and looked out over the hour-long wait at the restaurant, a wait that occurred every night of the week.
In addition to the New River Storehouse restaurant and floating hotel rooms, the club had a beautiful pool and deck, patio bars and a nightclub.
