After nearly 20 years of nonexistence, Scandals is reopening its doors under Rick Broussard and general manager and partner Chad Arnaud. Scandals originally rocked the Hotel Acadiana and was legendary for people arriving for what was ostensibly to be a few cocktails then ending up lampshade-on-the-head wasted, having to then secure a hotel room on the premises. It will be smoke-free. Local celebrity DJs will spin music from 1970 forward. They are hoping to cater to an older, more sophisticated clientele.

Crowne Plaza Hotel is the former Hotel Acadiana, located at 1801 Pinhook Road. There is a restaurant on site so if you do end up one of the lucky folks who gets a room, take heart! You don’t have to try crossing Pinhook and risking certain death to get to Chili’s because Café Raintree is right there in the hotel. Call 233-8120 for more information.
