The Marina

Marina Bay’s History

In the 1970’s – 80’s, Marina Bay was the playground of the rich and famous with Alfred Bloomingdale and Bill McComas heading a private club with a roster of 6,000 names including such famous members as Bob Hope, Ronald Reagan, Burt Reynolds, Paul Newman, Kenny Rogers, Evel Knievel to name a few. 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. Over time, the houseboats were removed and the property changed into the luxury marina it is today.
