The Argosy is a three-deck riverboat casino on the Mississippi River in the downtown historic district. There is over 29,000 square feet of gaming area. There is a bar on the 2nd level and a Deli on the 1st level. The Casino is connected to the Sheraton
Convention centre and hotel.
This isn't really a restaurant or a 'nightlife spot' but it is open all night, sometimes, it depends on how the people working there feel as to whether or not they stay open. They serve Coffee, Hot Chocolate, Tea, and BEIGNETS! It's a great place to go before or after you go out in Baton Rouge.
Dress Code: You will see people there wearing anything from jeans (most typical) to formal attire, and maybe even hardy anything at all!
You could stay at the Chimes and hang out at the bar, or if you would prefer to have a little club action, you can head to the Varsity, which is right next door. There are plenty of bars to go in Tiger Land. Baton Rouge also has two River Boat Casinos. Going out totally depends on what you want to do. I like to dance (swing) so the location changes night to night.
Another bit about beer around the world... you get your name on the wall! My buddy Matt and I hope to one day get our names up there (you can see part of it behind us).
Dress Code: The Chimes, Varsity, and Tigerland bars are all pretty well casual, so no worries there. Just make sure you wear the right shoes for DANCING!
