The Texas club is a large, country/dance musical mesh of a place. Cowboy hats and baggy jeans are side-by-side. Can't we all just get along? Not really. Many big fights break out necessitating their own private SWAT team. Good drinks that are a little on the expensive side. This place does host some of the biggest names in country music.
Dress Code: Whatever your musical taste proclaims is "cool."
A good Baton Rouge hang out. Easily has the best pool tables in town. Big screen TVs all around, a small bowling alley and other games like darts. They do serve food, but I don't know how good it is.
Dress Code: A little more "upper-class" than most of this college town's bars. Lots of businessmen frequent this place. Still jeans are acceptable, but not the norm.
Baton Rouge always has a great band playing somewhere, but the trouble is that you've got to know WHERE!!! My favorite local bands that play great WCS music include: Stormy, Nightshift, and Coffee. I keep tabs of who is playing where with my dance calender, on a Yahoo groop. Feel free to check it out or e-mail me if you want to go dance. Or if you want to go check out a spot, try Sullivans, or Rick-n-Robins. They always have live music on the weekends.
Dress Code: Put on your boogie shoes!!!
happy's is a very nice replica irish pub located in downtown baton rouge. a fun place to grab a guiness or two downtown.
Dress Code: casual.
Fun bands, fun people, good food, reasonably priced beer.
Dress Code: very casual - guys can wear jeans, t-shirt, and a hat but can get reasonably dressed up too (dress pants and shirt)
