Baton Rouge Nightlife, Louisiana

It can be hard to pick out the best place for nightlife entertainment in Baton Rouge, because there are so many great places that you can go to.  More visitors have been attracted to Baton Rouge's downtown area, and the area around LSU has something going on all the time.

One good place to go is Rick N Robins Night Club. This club is a very popular hot spot for those who enjoy being able to dance.  They have live music that is swamp pop and Louisiana style, and the type of dancing they have here is party, swing, and jitterbug styles.  They have a lot of great bands that play there, and they also offer lessons for dancing during the early evening.

600 Main is another great place to go that has live entertainment.  They opened early in 2008 and have been a major hit ever since.  Their entertainment offerings are modeled toward sexy and sophisticated themed events that push the boundaries for what many in the city are use to.  The amenities of the venue include a 40 foot bar, a stage, and a VIP section.  They have many events that include a 4pm Happy Hour on weeknights, a night for Strictly Salsa (where they offer lessons as well), 90s Dance Nights, and even more.  They also have a special Burlesque show, which is named Fleur de Tease, that is performed semi-monthly.  This Burlesque is a revision of a 19th century event, where women give a performance in risqué clothing.  600 Main also hosts a fashion show regularly, where beautiful women can show off their stuff.

Another great place to go is to The Roux House, which has live music as well.  This place has an excellent lounge and bar and, on many nights, it features an array of music styles, like dance, rock, blues, and more.  They also have a patio outside where visitors can hang out comfortably while enjoying a drink.

If you are looking for a place where you can listen to some rhythm and blues, look no further than Teddy's Juke Joint.  This place used to be a shotgun house, which is Teddy’s birth place  and it was transformed into a club for the blues by Teddy and his wife, Nancy.  On the club's walls you can see old pictures, license plates, old relics, and bar signs.  Teddy spins the best of the rhythm and blues from behind his music throne, and the kitchen, which is run by Nancy, is open all of the time, serving you the best food you can find.  Every Sunday, Teddy's House Band hosts Blues Jams.
