Lounge With a View: Mississippi Terrace Opens This Fall at Pyramid


  • Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid
A new outdoor lounge is headed for Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid this fall that offers a one-of-a-kind view of the Mississippi River.

The Mississippi Terrace will overlook the river from the third floor of the Pyramid’s Big Cypress Lodge hotel. The 7,000-square-foot lounge will be open to hotel guests and Pyramid visitors.

The bar will offer beer, wine, and cocktails. The hotel describes its small-plate menu as “New American comfort favorites and down-home Southern twists.“ (See the full menu below.)

Here’s how the hotel describes the vibe of the Mississippi Terrace:

“A feel-good ambiance evolves from relaxed al fresco afternoons and painterly sunsets over the Mississippi River to lively star-filled nights. Elegant gathering areas across the terrace’s 7,000-square-feet featuring oversized upholstered sofas and chairs with tables, high-top communal tables with modern pendant spheres that glow beneath awnings, striking circular tables that surround cozy fire pits, and dining tables for four with sun umbrellas.

“A copper-top destination bar offers additional seating while DJ grooves and live music (on select nights) filter through the terrace from a stage across from the bar. Hanging market lights, mood-inducing blue uplighting and beautiful landscaped plants, flowers and trees in wooden planters tie the meandering spaces together.”

No firm date was given for the opening of Mississippi Terrace. But when it does open, it’ll serve guests from 5 p.m.-11 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
