Company Description

The Overpass Merchant

We opened our door here at The Overpass Marchant on St. Patrick’s Day 2016, hoping to keep the long history of bars and restaurants on this corner alive for a new generation. Providing laid back lunches, lively dinners, and festive Sunday brunches to the neighborhood was the goal — all supported by a thoughtful bar program and friendly, familiar service. We’re on the best corner in Baton Rouge and we wouldn’t change it for the world.

Location highlights:

Located in the American South, but built on a history all its own, the state of Louisiana is truly unique. The vibe of modern-day Louisiana is a perfect melding of cultures including African, French, Native American, Canadian, Hatian and European, which combine to create a one-of-a-kind spirit that can only be found in this Southern state.

If you want to visit one state with more than a few cultural influences, come to Louisiana. Bordered by the Mississippi River to the East and the Gulf of Mexico to the South, Louisiana has seen more than a few inhabitants over the years. Many such inhabitants have come together to form communities with cultures all their own, namely the distinctive Cajun culture in Louisiana’s Southwest region. Then, of course, there’s New Orleans. This world-class city is rich in history and charm, and offers a music, cuisine and carnival festival scene unparalleled in the region. Add to that, the distinctive environmental features of the state, such as its vast swamplands and accompanying bird populations, as well as the many outdoor destinations to the north, and you’ll find plenty to do and see on your trip to Louisiana.

Baton Rouge is a city on the Mississippi River, and the capital of Louisiana. Antebellum landmarks include the castle-like Old Louisiana State Capitol, now a museum, and Magnolia Mound Plantation, with its French Creole house. LSU Rural Life Museum is a complex of refurbished buildings illustrating 18th- and 19th-century life. On the river, the USS Kidd is a retired WWII destroyer that is now a museum.



Great music, food and nature, with a dash of eccentricity!
