Bars & Nightlife

Shreveport-Bossier nightlife is the stuff of legends. From hole-in-the-wall whiskey bars and drive-through daiquiri joints to craft beer tasting rooms and brewpubs, there’s a perfect local watering hole for everyone. With the recent launch of ridesharing services Lyft and Uber in Shreveport-Bossier, a responsible night out is more convenient than ever. 

Along the downtown riverfront, six riverboat casinos provide 24/7 gaming excitement and a variety of nightclubs, bars and entertainment venues entice visitors with cold drinks, spicy food and the sounds of live jazz, rock, blues, country, folk, hip-hop, soul, and R&B. Beyond the downtown nightlife scene, explore Shreveport and Bossier City to discover everything from world-class music venues to off-the-beaten-path craft beer bars.
