Here are seven spots we love to love in Acadiana:

  1. Artistic endeavors are a GREAT way to let off some steam and soothe the soul. Let your creativity flow at The Clayfish Bisque – a pottery painting studio providing all the tools for you to unleash your inner artist.

  2. If beignets, burgers, omelets, and cocktails all in one place sounds too good to be true, then you probably haven’t been to Brick and Spoon Restaurant. Here you’ll find all of these treats + so many other tasty dishes and drinks with excellent customer service as the cherry on top.

  3. Shop handmade art, relax and enjoy live music, or get your laugh on with an improv show at The Omni Center. This special events venue features the local artistic talents that are soon to become your faves.

  4. When you’re ready to wine down, you don’t want any old two-buck chuck. MySomm is the expert Acadiana sommelier who can help YOU discover the perfect wine for any event, food pairing, or specific taste you might have.

  5. Live music, craft beer, comedy shows, AND Cajun food? Uh yeah, we’re all in. The Wurst Biergarten brings you all of that and more in their open-air market and beer garden created with fun-loving people in mind. (Read more here!)

  6. If you’re looking for a hobby where you can get in shape + let off some steam, then Gladiators Academy of Lafayette is the fitness place for you. Try one of their Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, or other mixed martial arts classes taught by professional instructors.

  7. Tacos aren’t just for Tuesday! No matter what day of the week you’re craving a taco, make your way over to Taco Sisters for their famous smoked fish taco, a fresh juice, or any other number of speciality tacos and burritos.
