Happy Hour

Frosty Factory daiquiri

Lake Charles’ bars offer no shortage of drink specials. Hit happy hour at My Place American Pub, Chicageaux Bar or the Cajun’s Wharf. If a cocktail hour or wine bar is what you’re looking for, make sure to visit 121 Artisan Bistro, 1910, Restaurant Calla or Pujo Street Café. Feel like trying a craft beer? Crying Eagle Brewing Company or Rikenjaks Brewing Company has the brews. For a full listing of local bars, click here.

Dinner

Enjoy a relaxing sit-down meal at any of the gourmet or local Top 20 Favorite Restaurants from seafood to Italian, and steakhouses to Cajun, to gain enough sustenance to dance the night away!

Late-night music

Jack Daniels Live Music

At our casinos, you can kick back and relax or rock out at a live concert. Golden Nugget Lake Charles and L’Auberge Casino Resort sit side by side, both showcasing dynamite entertainment lineups. Ember Piano Bar and Rush Lounge are great for music and conversation.

The Isle of Capri has a regular line-up of entertainment with a dance floor if you feel like moving your feet, and the Gator Lounge at Delta Downs is always hosting local and regional entertainment.
