The atmosphere at L’Auberge Casino & Hotel Baton Rouge’s 18 Steak is upscale and trendy yet relaxed, and the crowd is as varied as its menu. As Baton Rouge is the state capitol, a petrochemical industry hub, and home to Louisiana State University, you may find yourself seated among legislators, Exxon executives, and LSU professors or top brass. And Louisiana’s generous tax credits have made the state a haven for filmmakers, so on any given night the casino clientele might include an A-list movie star or two taking a break from the set at nearby Celtic Media Centre where actors including Tom Cruise, Willem Dafoe, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have filmed in recent years. Glamour, ivory tower, and corporate America aside, you may also rub shoulders with families taking grandma and grandpa out for a special anniversary weekend at 18 Steak, as well as a gentleman or two who look like they walked off the set of Duck Dynasty.
