Baton Rouge can be a tough spot to pick out the best place to go out and enjoy Baton Rouge nightlife. We have very few club spots and a majority of them are spread out which makes it a little harder to determine the best place to go. Downtown Baton Rouge has been attracting more visitors and businesses giving us a better after dark experience. LSU and the surrounding area of course always have something going on. Here we'll try to list the best places to go based on day of the week and by experience.
You might also check out our Baton Rouge bars section where we have other venues who dive in to the night. Alternatively take a look at our events calendar link on the navigation bar. We list daily events for live music, bars and events.
