The Shaw Center is a wonderful and beautiful place! My daughters wedding was fantastic, and the backdrop couldn't have been more exquisite! The view was stunning, and perfect for a mid-sized wedding...! We were totally beyond satisfied with the Shaw Center, and received much help along the way in planning the perfect evening for our daughters special day!� See More

We had a wedding reception here last weekend with close to 300 people. From beginning to end Kathryn was there to help us with whatever we needed. It couldn't have gone any smoother. Priscilla is an a...wesome person to work with. She coordinated all of our requests without hesitation. I'd love to do it all over again. Thank you guys for making the mother of the bride feel so calm!!! See More

Attended a roof top wedding and reception lastnight. It was amazing! The view...the location...all great. Only suggestion is for the building to provide access to dollies or carts on wheels to help ge...t stuff down to your cars afterward. See More

It has the most wonderful intimate music venue, an art gallery, restaurant with views of Baton Rouge, and maybe best of all, a roof top bar with views of the Mississippi River!! A great place to hang!

The weather was horrible and the awnings and top covers were not sufficient enough to keep the guest from getting wet...

Great place... Nothing more to say, they showed a documentary on my Uncle Dick Russell and the show was good but the setting made the experience great!
