There is no better way to celebrate an excellent day in Southwest Louisiana than with a night out on the town. Whether you plan to hit the casino floor or the dance floor, Lake Charles makes it easy to burn the midnight oil.
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.
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!
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.
Get in on the action with a fun-filled night of karaoke at The Frosty Factory or Trivia Tuesdays at MacFarlane’s Celtic Pub and Rikenjaks Brewing Company. If you and your crew want something a little different and more challenging, explore Bayou Escape Rooms or Escape Room Louisiana.
You'll crack up for Sloppy's Downtown's Monday night comedy shows.
