There is a new name in town - L'auberge! It is the name chosen by Pinnacle for the new casino and hotel being built in Baton Rouge.
The $357 million project will feature a 30 thousand square feet gaming area and a 200 room hotel. It will also generate nearly one thousand new jobs in Baton Rouge.
The new casino is located just off Nicholson Drive south of LSU. Construction has been delayed due to the rising river levels, but it is expected to open next summer.
