This place is a traditional Cajun dance hall with authentic Cajun dance bands! It operates early in the afternoon, so the older Cajuns can still go and dance. These older people are amazing to watch because they are so smooth! This is a very friendly...More

The last of the real Cajun Dancehalls! The dancefloor is perfection. The music always great. The drinks are cheap, and the people are welcoming and wonderful!
