Olive or Twist

A local favorite in Baton Rouge, this cocktail bar is known for its speak-easy type feel and its delicious drinks. They also do a reverse happy hour for the working crowd and small plates to nibble on while you’re there. If you can, make sure to grab a slice of their New Orleans-style Doberge cake.

Lock & Key Whiskey Bar

If you couldn’t tell by the name, Lock & Key specializes in whiskey. But don’t let that scare you away; the bar also caters to the “whiskey-doubters” by serving up blended cocktails such as the “Penny for Your Thoughts” and the “Hummingbird Walks into a Whiskey Bar.”
