Sip on the Local Drinks
Baton Rouge is now home to two craft breweries that are really making a name for themselves – Tin Roof Brewing Company and Southern Craft Brewing Company.
Looking for something fun and free? Both breweries offer weekly tours and often are host to many local events including Yoga at the brewery, tailgates for football season, pop up shops and so much more! Come down and sip on a Swamp Sting, Pompous Pelican, Perfect Tin or Juke Joint IPA in Baton Rouge!
Cook at the Local Culinary Institute
The state-of-the-art Louisiana Culinary Institute is producing world-class chefs and culinary professionals right in Baton Rouge. In fact, the Cooking Channel even did an 8-part documentary series, The Freshman Class, which followed four aspiring chefs through their first semester at the Louisiana Culinary Institute.
Visitors can tour the facility or take in a leisure cooking class with their instructors.
Looking for something fresh? Gulf-to-table and farm-to-table are both accessible to all in Baton Rouge. Every Saturday of the month, the Main Street Market features the Red Stick Farmers Market where you can purchase local meats, eggs, herbs and more.
You can’t miss Tony’s Seafood, the largest seafood market in Louisiana and home to Louisiana Fish Fry products, for a one-of-a-kind south Louisiana experience. It doesn’t stop there – many of our restaurants utilize local farms for the food served in their restaurants such as Beausoleil Restaurant, City Pork and Goûter Restaurant.
Join the Local Experiences
Along with our restaurants and hand-on experiences, we’ve got festivals to satisfy your appetite! Visit in August to take part in Fête Rouge, a food and wine tasting highlighting some of our most well-known restaurants.
If you can’t make it for that, Baton Rouge has two “Restaurant Weeks” – in January and July where over 50 restaurants prepare fixed price menus ranging from $15-35 per person. It’s a perfect time to dive into the restaurant scene you’ve been wanting
