It didn't take our friends in Baton Rouge long to discover RDLR when they moved there, so for months I looked forward to going there for an evening out. Suffice it to say that this place totally rocks!! The best part is that it's guaranteed that people will actually listen to the performers. None of the crosstalk or conversations or... More

Whenever I am in Baton Rouge I make a point to check out the Red Dragon Listening Room. This is a real asset for people of BR to listen to original music performed by real musicians.

You simply cannot beat the music and atmosphere at the Red Dragon. It's unlike anything I have ever experienced before. I have attended three shows now and each time I walk away with a smile and humming to myself. The musicians are fabulous and the crowd is filled with music enthusiasts from all over. A must see experience in Baton... More

IF you want to hear original music by real musicians in the company of people that want to LISTEN, this is the place! From local, regional and national performers, the small crowd is welcome to this earthy gem. Listen, relax, and enjoy! Get on the email list.

Excellent musicianship, eclectic genres, fully matched by the odd fans in attendance. A private club, so ticket price only suggested & drinks are BYO, but usually a suspect tray of brownies available.

Great singer-songwriter music can be found here several times a month. Bring your own beverage and keep in mind that this is a listening room, not a bar. Don't worry about the location as there's a secured parking area behind the building.

Great variety of singer song writers from the up and comer to a recent visit by Joan Baez, in a room that only seats a hundred or so souls. Just great and funky. Only open for shows. Gotta find the schedule.

Small venue. They don't sell anything, but only charge admission at the door. Depending on who is playing, it's usually $30/night for a couch seat. Two bands each night. One gets the cover and the other plays for tips. JOAN BAEZ played there over the weekend. They have some awesome music. Bring your own food and drink. Not a great... More

This place has a lot of singer/songwriters that pass thru here. Never seen a bad show here. Atmosphere is all about the music. Truly a one of a kind place for music. There are a lot of shows put on here and you are sure to find a favorite passing thru. Great experience every time. All famous but obscure players.... More

This is not a fancy place by any means as all of the proceeds go to the artists (place is privately owned and run), so admittance is very inexpensive ($15-20). Bring your own cooler and snacks. You sit on couches that have been donated by individuals so there is not a bad seat in the house. For the more popular... More
