re: Fairway View Apartment Complex - Baton Rouge

I remember one of my first times going to the apartment and your neighbors had a "have-a-heart" trap with a coon in it right outside their door. As I walked up, they asked me to go drown it in the pool. I thought, "Well this is a lovely place."

Good before Katrina, that bar was clutch during summer pool parties.

I was visiting friends there late one evening. As I was walking to my car in the parking lot three dudes robbed me, stripped me naked, and tied me to a radiator.

I wouldn't live there.

The night before my wedding in 2002, all the guys in party got some random chick at the bar in Fairway View to talk to me. Ended up getting a bj out of it. Knew it would be the last bj I would get for a while so said what the hell

My GF worked there in the 90s. On her birthday she brought home a car full of gifts from the old creepers.

Roemer played poker there all the time

re: Fairway View Apartment Complex - Baton Rouge
My brother lived there in the early 00's and it seemed like a decent place at the time. The bar in the back used to sell me alcohol when I was 15 and never once carded me.

Nah I'm young. But I grew up in the neighborhood on the other side of the golf course and remember hearing about it. I want to say that it was a good 7 or so years ago



Me too, I was near Hundred oaks.

That bar was a special hang out for me and a few friends in the early 90's. One guy's dad had a charge account there and we would just go get stupid.
Even as a young guy, I took notice of the guys in suits who seemed to be there a lot with the slutty looking women in the evenings. Must have been one of those places they knew none of the wives would ever show up.

Lived there 98-00. Lived directly across from the bar and it was freaking awesome. Had tons of friends that lived around me. Having a bar, with pool tables, juke box, served food, with a pool all within 100 ft of my front door was the shite. Lots of BR business men brought their strange there for lunch. Buddy R. was a nice guy that bought us drinks occasionally. Funny thing was when I told my grandmother where I lived, she said to ask my grandfather about the place. Apparently my grandfather used to bring his strange there in the 80's.

I lived there in 95 and 96. The pool was great and the bar was legit. Plenty of talent living there.

There was at least one smaller pool closer to the front that was nice.

The tennis courts on the back were money as well.

It was that bar that the wives didn't know about. Also their summer pool parties in the 90s like others said were solid with the post party at the bar. At times the parties at the Commons (yes I am showing my age) would transfer there.

I really wasn't joking when I said I was stabbed in the parking lot of FVA. The blade missed my femoral artery by inches, however it did go through through my stomach and spleen.

re: Fairway View Apartment Complex - Baton Rouge
I lived there from 02' - 03' right after graduating LSU. It wasn't as horrible as described now. It was the only crime I experienced in Baton Rouge in the 12 years I lived there. I had a bicycle stolen and my car was keyed in the parking lot. The rent was pretty cheap like <600 for a 2 bedroom. It suited for a year, met some good friends there. I didn't see the crime described, wasn't clean or anything.

I only went to the bar/restaurant 2 times in the year I lived there. It is located right at the left turn you would make to go to the back apartments.
