John from Omaha, Nebraska asked

Great music spots in Baton Rouge?

Anyone know any places we could go to hear some good Louisiana-style music?  I was in NOLA earlier this year and experienced some great music there and am hoping for more of the same in Baton Rouge!

The Varsity Theatre, right at the north gates of LSU, is great. Check out BR's Gambit Weekly to see who's playing where.

Sounds like a cool place, Scott. Thanks for sharing! By the way, I'm a community manager here and I've helped you highlight the place in your answer on a map! In the future, you can do this yourself as you answer a question by simply typing the @-symbol followed by the name of the place. Take a look at your map next to your answer :)

Thank you for the recommendations Leslie! If you had to choose between Boudreaux & Thibodeaux's and Boutin's, which one would you choose or are both worth a visit?

Boudreaux's and Thibodeaux's, its downtown BR and if you get tired of it you can always go to City Bar, The Office, or Puncher's (they don't play cajun music but I've always had fun here). The casino's are downtown also.

The music scene in Baton Rouge is kinda lame. Not nearly as fruitful as New Orleans. You may find a good show at Chelsea's Cafe http://chelseascafe.com/  or the The Varsity Theatre http://www.varsitytheatre.com/. Depends on the night. Same goes for  Sullivan's Steakhouse http://sullivanssteakhouse.com/baton-rouge/events

If it's cajun style you're after, take a quick drive up to Breaux Bridge to Café Des Amis for their weekend Zydeco brunch. SO. MUCH. FUN.

Also, don't forget The Spanish Moon in BR.
