“keepin' it real”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

This place is a local club, attended by local folks that love great music and dancing. What fun! Whether you are a dancer or a watcher, when you are in Breaux Bridge, Saturday night should be reserved for La Pouissiere.

“The very best cajun dance music experience anywhere.”
Reviewed November 2, 2010

The floor calls you to waltz, twostep, jidderbug as the music starts and continues through the night or afternoon. The service is friendly and the refreshments keep the party going. The best dance floor anywhere.Walter Mouton's retirement has been weathered and the new bands(all of them are worth a try) keep the party going. Locals are the show for the vistors, who have been known to join in and learn a step or to (two step).

“This is the real deal”
Reviewed December 24, 2006

La Poussiere is the real deal - mainly locals, dancing to traditional Cajun music at an old-fashioned dance hall on a back street in Breaux Bridge. It's been in the same family for something like a million years, and we hope some outsider doesn't snap it up and turn it into a Gilley's someday. Don't miss Walter Mouton on Saturday nights - he's been playing there since I was born, and I think he just gets better with every passing week!

The music is played in the old-school two-step/waltz alternating format. The steps are really basic, with few, if any, of the fancy turns or pretzel-armed moves you'll find in other parts of Cajun country. It's harder than it looks though, because, at La Poussiere, everybody dances close and fast. If done properly, it feels sort of like you're flying around the dance floor, which, BTW, is one of the best in the state. One time, I had a couple drinks too many and was babbling at my husband that I wanted to divorce him and marry that dance floor! It really is that good.

La Poussiere doesn't generally serve food (unless otherwise advertised), but the bar is well-stocked. Go out to eat ahead of time and make an evening of it. We love this place!
