Great for brunch on the weekends (ask about their bottomless mimosas) and dinner every night. Another local favorite. And not a bad place to catch a game on the several tv's.

Drinks & Nightlife

Hip and young crowd. Great DJ's, bar games, draft beer & whiskey selection, and and a great outdoor area. Probably one of the coolest places in Baton Rouge. Located in Mid City.

Obviously a sushi restaurant, it's great for date night because of it's stunning views of the river from its penthouse location and for sipping your sake out on the outdoor deck. Definitely one of our hot spots.

Nightclubs, bars, restaurants can all be found on 3rd street, where live music spills out out open doors and balconies. Great for people watching, there's always a crowd down here.

Sightseeing

The white castle by the river, the restored old state capitol survived occupation by union troops, as well as countless busloads of grade-school kids on field trips. Check out the amazing central staircase and stained glass for yourself, and check out the small but very interesting exhibit on Huey P. Long's legacy.

Walkable from downtown and Spanish Town, the "new" state capitol is a Art Deco masterpiece full of history. Check out the Huey P. Long statue on the park grounds or the nearby civil war barracks, original site of LSU.

Parks & Nature

This is actually a must-see. Quick and easy to get to and only $3, this kind of nature area is unique to the Gulf Coast. The trails are all boardwalks with railings, so it's a nature hike but in style. Something to do while in Baton Rouge, and then afterwards it's a short drive to Jimmy Swaggart's mega church! Just kidding, but it is a short drive to Mall of Louisiana and the movies.

Smack-dab in the middle of LSU's gorgeous campus, this is perfect for walking, jogging, and mansion-ogling. You can even rent watercraft and explore. From here, you can also check out campus restaurants like The Chimes, and great little coffee shops.

This is like Baton Rouge's back yard, where a local band might be playing outdoors, or you can check out the latest city festivals or 5K fun runs.

Beach, hiking/biking/running trail, sight-seeing you name it we've got it on the lakes where LSU calls home. Campus borders these lakes but so do parks, golf courses, the Garden District, and even Mike the Tiger's compound.

Big, well maintained and has everything. Lots of restaurants and a movie theatre.

Newer and nicer, and smaller, than Mall of Louisiana. One of those new malls designed like a little town. They have a nice movie theatre too, and nice restaurants.
