The Guru is a unique, inclusive venue with wonderful ambience and the best prices in town.
Beautiful and unique reception space - An Eventective User from Baton Rouge

The Guru was simply fantastic! It's decorative interior is perfect for those wanting to get away from more traditional reception venues. Great price too!

Birthday party - An Eventective User from Baton Rouge,LA

We planned an 80th birthday party for my mother, and although it had to be canceled at the last moment due to local flooding, the staff of the Guru were absolutely wonderful to work with. Kay and Sydney are the best ever, and we will definitely go there when it's time to reschedule the party!
