Walk-On's coming to downtown Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Walk-On's is coming to downtown Baton Rouge.

Voted the "Best Sports Bar in North America", the facility which will be called Walk-On's Halfcourt, will open a scaled-down version on Third Street in the Lee Overton building next to Happy's Irish Pub.

"We've been investing in the revitalization of downtown Baton Rouge since 2005, when we brought Happy's and Roux House to the area," said Brandon Landry, co-owner and founder of Walk-On's Enterprises. "Walk-On's Halfcourt is a perfect fit for downtown, bringing a much-needed sports bar along with all the great eats and sights Walk-On's is known for."

The sports bar is scheduled to open in the Fall.
