Walk-On's to open Towne Center restaurant




Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar has announced plans to open a new location at Towne Center in the space previously occupied by Mugshots Grill & Bar, which closed in early November. The latest Walk-On's—which will be the fifth location for the sports bar and restaurant chain overall and its third in Baton Rouge—will feature a slightly new design concept, with an outdoor beer garden, more than 80 TVs, and custom table beer taps that allow guests to serve themselves. Walk-On's co-founder Brandon Landry says the 8,500-square-foot space in Towne Center is a desirable location for several reasons: It fits with the restaurant's target demographic, it is easily accessible from all over the city and also there are no other sports bar/restaurants in the area. "We are thrilled about the opportunity to expand our brand and open a new location that truly fits our concept and our vision for Walk-On's," says Landry. "We believe the Towne Center location will help continue the growth of our brand in Baton Rouge." Walk-On's has contracted with Arkel Constructors and Holden Architects to renovate the space and is planning to open in the spring. Walk-On's—which operates under the Last In Concepts brand along with Happy's Irish Pub, Schlittz & Giggles and The Roux House—currently has restaurants on Burbank Drive and Coursey Boulevard in Baton Rouge, as well as one each in Lafayette and New Orleans. —Stephanie Riegel
