There is a rumor that the Ritz were building a 40 story tower on 3rd street near Avoyelle's Cafe.

The Dave and Buster's wouldn't surprise me. I'd place a bet that it would be in a very suburban area, like Sherwood, College, or Siegen/Bluebonnet.

Wow...I just lost a bet with myself. It's been a whole 8 minutes and still no threat devoted to the rumor that I started.

Are yall asleep?

FYI I didn't really hear anything about the Ritz. It's not going downtown.

HAHA, well other then the fact it didnt seem feasible, the location didnt seem feasible either. But i would hate to question you, I would rather just let it be true! So lets just keep this our little secret, cajun. Dan, we are going to need for you to get on those renderings, haha.

Sorry for the late reply. Impressive this many replies in just a few hours!

Ha Ha to the Ritz on Third. I wish the Palms on Third the next block over would get started though :P

I heard Dave & Busters would team up with Avenue E, the upscale bowling alley as part of a entertainment complex downtown! Complete with a small cinema inside the city's largest parking garage. With offices and condotel tower on top ;)

Well I'm not sure if ya'll remember or not, but there was an article in either the advocate, or BR business report, and in it the mentioned the pinnacle casino hotel. In the article, they said that they might try to brand the hotel as a four seasons, or ritz, because they see a demand for it.

I'll admit: You had me until the end of the first sentence.

I went to a Dave and Busters in Cincinnatti. They are not that much fun really. I guess if you are 15 years old it could be.

I would be very surprised to see a Ritz-Carlton or a Four Seasons in Baton Rouge. A better fit would be a Westin hotel. Hyatt might also make sense. I'm not saying this to be dismissive or belittling in any way. I just don't think the market in Baton Rouge is quite ready for these brands. Maybe a few years down the road...
