BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A new sports bar with a familiar name is headed to Towne Center in Baton Rouge.

What was Mugshots is now going to be Walk-On's Bistreaux and Bar. Walk-On's co-owner Brandon Landry said construction should begin next week at the site off Corporate Boulevard.

He's hoping to have the restaurant open by March, which would be just in time for March Madness.

Landry said the location fits the Walk-On's target demographic and is right in the middle of the city, making it an easily accessible spot from all corners of Baton Rouge.

He added it will feature an outdoor beer garden, beer taps at tables and 80-plus screens.
