Girlfriend and I were trying to brainstorm a list of places to check out good live music, so I figured I would enlist the FDB for help. Could be a restaurant, bar, or some combination thereof. Not really looking for "venues" with what Baton Rouge would call headliners (Varsity, etc), but more places to relax, have a few drinks/eat, and listen to some local stuff.

quote: What happened to Redstar? Is that place still around? They used to feature local talent.
Red Star shut down a few months ago after the owner sold the building. They're supposed to bring in live entertainment at Mud & Water downtown, but I haven't heard about any acts. And they don't serve food. I second the Chelsea's endorsements.

Just to clarify, I meant "laid back" simply to mean that I'm not looking for a scene with people crowding the stage, dancing, etc. It can certainly be a nicer establishment, a la Melange in New Orleans. If we've got a Snug Harbor hiding somewhere in Baton Rouge, by all means, let me know
