The spirit of YNOT Dock is simple: bring people together to have a good time, foster a stronger sense of community and togetherness within this beautiful city we live, and create an environment for families and friends to share special moments and form lasting memories.
“We came across the opportunity to take over a part of this amazing location on the lakefront that was underdeveloped. Our goal was and still is to create an unforgettable atmosphere where locals and tourists could come on any occasion and feel comfortable, relaxed, and enjoy a vacation at home to get away from the hustle of life. The motivation behind this whole project was to see that if we could give someone the right opportunity, a comfortable space, and a carefree mindset then it really comes down to “why not?”, thus the name. We all tend to say it on a daily basis anyway. So, whether it’s winding down a long day at work with a drink and a sunset view, joining a bunch of strangers, hopefully, soon-to-be friends for a night of dancing and music, hosting an event of a lifetime for those closest to you, or letting loose on the lake on a beautiful summer day, YNOT Dock hopes to offer a place for people to enjoy themselves for years to come.”
-Tony Bertucci (YNOT Dock Founder)
YNOT Dock is part of the early stage in the development of this lakefront property, previously known as Bally’s Casino. Future plans include creating both an outdoor and indoor, open-air, festival space for large events as well as building a full-service restaurant. In addition, specifically for the boating community, there are plans of building a private boat launch, a fuel dock, and a boating store, the latter of which is currently being developed. YNOT Dock is thrilled to be a central part of this grand scale project and we can not wait to see what’s in store once the area has been fully developed.
In addition to setting up our casual lakefront venue, YNOT Dock also hosts its sister company, NOLA Flyboarding, for water sports rentals and activities. Let loose on the lake in your own way with party barges, jet skis, paddleboards, and kayaks, or take to the sky with a one of a kind experience as you strap in for a full-throttle, flyboarding ride. No matter what you’re looking for, YNOT Dock is here to help bring fun back to the New Orleans’ Lakefront. We’re open to the public Thursday-Sunday for food and drinks, and we’re a family fun environment appropriate for all ages. Thanks for visiting our page, and we hope to see you soon!
