Third Street Baton Rouge

At the heart of downtown Baton Rouge lies Third Street, an entertainment hub of restaurants, bars, live music venues and other bustling hot spots. Lively crowds fill the street, strolling from spot to spot, enjoying the varying vibe of each. Celebrate birthdays or bachelor/bachelorette parties, gather for a bar crawl with friends, or plan a date night where you can find it all on one street.

Third Street Bars & Nightlife

Whether you're looking for a nice evening at a wine bar or to dance the night away to live music, Third Street is home to many options on a night out. Venture to Happy's Irish Pub for a fun patio hangout, the infamous Boudreaux & Thibodeaux's for drinks and dancing, or The Basin Music Hall which hosts live entertainment weekly.

Third Street Dining

Romantic upscale eateries like The Little Village or Stroube's Steak and Seafood are perfect for celebrations. Go for classic Louisiana fare at Cecelia Creole Bistro, or rooftop sushi with a view of the Mississippi River at Tsunami Sushi. For all-day beignets, paired with an iced coffee or bubbly, swing by The Vintage, and for a late-night bite, pick up a slice of pizza to go from the walk-up window at Schlittz & Giggles.

Third Street Entertainment

If live music is what you love, then Third Street in Baton Rouge is the place. The city is known for being an acoustic music mecca and walk into any venue on Third Street and you'll discover local and traveling talent. The Basin Music Hall is known for showcasing songwriters and Squeaky Pete's is there for the honkytonk fans. The Shaw Center for the Arts is where you can find art museums, performing arts venues, theaters, restaurants and more. Third Street is also within walking distance of Raising Cane's River Center which hosts large-scale concerts, shows and other events, making it the perfect hangout before or after.

Staying in a hotel on Third street will put you within walking distance of all the fun! The Watermark is a beautifully luxurious hotel in a renovated historic building, and for the full Third Street experience, the Courtyard by Marriott has balconies overlooking the street into all the action and excitement.
