Bars & Nightlife

Shreveport-Bossier nightlife is the stuff of legends.

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.
