Recommendations

Perfect Place for a Concert, An Eventective User from Baton Rouge, LA

I have been to the Varsity many times to see live shows and have always had a great time. The venue is open and spacious even when there is a large crowd and there is always a place to stand. The bartenders are friendly and personable and make sure you are having a good time. You can rent it out for smaller shows or attend larger band concerts so it is a very versatile venue. I would recommend this to anyone!

This mansion is the perfect setting for both your ceremony and reception, bridal shower, engagement party, corporate meetings, etc. We offer rental only packages as well as catered or both.
