Mid-City Perkins Road Entertainment Area

Great Restaurants, Great Bars, Great Nightlife

Baton Rouge Entertainment Areas In the middle of Baton Rouge within less than a half mile diameter of where Perkins road and Interstate-10 meet you'll find one of the best places to enjoy yourself in town. Restaurants, bars, nightlife and more can be found here. Many of the places have been here for a long time and continue to be the best in Baton Rouge.

My wife and I recently enjoyed a great night in this area and I give them big credit for presenting one of the best areas in town.

Baton Rouge Restaurants & Bars:

  • DiJiulio Brothers - A wonderful Italian cafe serving some of the best Italian food in town. A very popular and very good place. One of my wife's favorites.
  • Rama Thai Cuisine - Many will tell you this is some of the most authentic Thai you can find.
  • Zeeland Street Market - Homestyle cooking and unique creations that make this place a huge local favorite.
  • Parrain's Seafood - A great taste of Louisiana style seafood. I frequent this place.
  • Zippy's - Very cool Mexican style place that's very casual. They have a real cool outside area to hang out and enjoy drinks.
  • Chelsea's Cafe - Some absolutely excellent food in this long time local favorite. Enjoy an absolutely perfect menu of offerings that many people love to go enjoy. They put a creative twist on all their dishes that I love. They also have a stage in the back where they have live music & entertainment.
  • Zee Zee Gardens - A very friendly local favorite. I enjoy going have drinks at this comfortable place.
  • Duvic's Martini Bar - A great place to go enjoy a cool evening and some of the best martinis in town.

  • George's Local Restaurant & Bar - You'll fit right in at this classic corner bar favorite in Baton Rouge. Always a great place to have a drink.
  • The Caterie - One of the best nightlife spots in town you'll always find a great live music act here. Great drink prices in the most entertaining hole in the wall you'll ever visit. They also serve great food and allow no smoking inside.
  • Juban's Creole Restaurant - Juban's offers some of the finest dining in town. They have a beautiful restaurant hidden away in the shopping center at the corner of Perkin's and Acadian Thruway. Excellent wine selection and beautiful bar. A must visit.
  • Happy Note Lounge - A small but popular hole in the wall that packs the room with people. Popular with the local LSU students. Known for their cocktails.
  • Uncle Earls - Sister bar of the Happy note this is another popular college age bar known for their strong drinks.

    All of these places are really great and good for a fun evening.

    Additionally the area where Ivars, Chelea's, Duvic's and Georges is locate is host to the biggest St. Patrick's day parade celebration area every year. I always go check it out.
