Real Estate Developer and Restaurateur Pat Fasano was in Atlantic City this week to kick off phase 2 of construction for Atlantic CIty's first outdoor shipping container court & bar. Fasano is utilizing the 18,000 square feet of outdoor space next to his Cajun BBQ restaurant Bourré - located on New York Avenue - and plans to build an outdoor summer stage, dj booth, restrooms, bar, a bridge container that will fly across the sky, and a Neapolitan pizza container.
"You'll get the best Neapolitan pizza in Atlantic City right here where you'll see your favorite band", said Fasano. He is also a big advocate for Atlantic City, and is confident that outdoor entertainment venues are what the city needs right now. "These vacant lots are opportunity knocking, and this is all in the opportunity zone, so the tax benefits are enormous...so come see Pat Fasano, I'll show you where to buy!"
