Roy Carrier’s Offshore Lounge

Venue Info

Roy Carrier’s lies deep in the heart of Cajun country, near Opelousas (where you’ll find all the best boudin and cracklins). If you were making a film and needed the type of bar that Louisiana oil industry workers and their cohorts frequent, this would be your ideal pick. The eponymous founder of the place was actually an “offshore driller, tool pusher, and roughneck,” as he put it. Sounds like our kind of place: you’ll find Roy here on Thursday nights, alongside a revolving cast of zydeco musicians, many of whom cut their teeth on its stage with the man himself.
