Big things are happening on the levee in Baton Rouge and you will be able to see the results on August 29, 2012.
L’auberge Casino Hotel Baton Rouge is rising over the mighty Mississippi and when complete, it will be the first resort casino in Baton Rouge. L’auberge Baton Rouge is owned by Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc., the same folks that brought you L’auberge Lake Charles. This adds another piece of the tourism puzzle to the Baton Rouge tourism landscape. Baton Rouge has been riding high over the past several years with great new restaurants, new attractions, festivals and now a major resort.
What will you find at L’auberge Baton Rouge? Let’s start with the Casino:
- 74,000 sq. foot one-level casino
- 1,500 slot machines
- Table games such as Blackjack, three card poker, roulette, etc.
- VIP Lounge
- A Vibrant Red Poker Room with all your favorite games and it’s non-smoking.
After you have spent several hours at the casino, you need to eat something. Here are your options:
- Bon Temps Buffet: Southern Comfort food and plenty of it with 366 seats.
- Stadium Sports Bar and Grill: Louisiana is rich in sports history and you will find memorabilia throughout the 186 seats and 50 flat screen TVs bar and grill. You will also find great Southern specialties on the menu.
- 18 Steak: Why the name? It’s a way of honoring Louisiana for being the 18th state in the U.S. As great steakhouses go, this one serves prime beef paired with a great wine list.
- P.J’s Café: Looking for something small? A cup of coffee. A sandwich. This café is open 24 hours (in a row) and will quench your taste buds.
Looking for entertainment? Here are your options:
- Events Center: This 1,550 seat venue will have music nightly with some of the country’s best-known performers.
- Outdoor Festival Grounds: On the levee, this scenic outdoor venue can handle up to 2,500 people.
- Edge: Just want to unwind? This 115 seat indoor-outdoor bar/lounge with a great view of the Mississippi River and continuous background music is the place to be.
L’auberge is not wasting any time with their entertainment. In the month of September they have already booked Al Green (9/14) and in October they have Darius Rucker and Better Than Ezra (10/12) AND Louisiana’s own Harry Connick, Jr. (10/26). Go to www.Ticketmaster.com for tickets. Hurry.
So, after a night of casino gaming, dining, watching a live performance in the event center, don’t go home. Stay in one of the hotel's 205 Louisiana-inspired rooms with the latest amenities or one of their 40 elegantly designed suites. Before you check out, enjoy Baton Rouge’s only rooftop pool that overlooks the Mississippi.
I hope you will plan a day trip, an overnight stay or a weekend visit to Baton Rouge and experience the L’auberge experience.
