Two New Orleans favorites set to open in downtown Lafayette in 2017

LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) As some Lafayette businesses close, others are set to open.

Construction is starting to pick up on Jefferson Street at Dat Dog and Rock ‘N’ Bowl.

In six months, downtown Lafayette should have a pair of New Orleans staples up and running on each end of Jefferson Street.

Dat Dog is opening at the end of the summer, according to their Facebook page.

Rock ‘N’ Bowl, according to owner Johnny Blancher, is hoping to open by December of this year.

Getting these two businesses downtown is a huge win for the Hub City.

Of the two projects, Rock ‘N Bowl’ is definitely the biggest.

Owner Johnny Blancher, “We’re putting 5 million dollars into this 26,000 square foot project.”

Although Dat Dog and Rock ‘N’ Bowl still have plenty of work to do before opening their doors Blancher says they’re excited to call Lafayette home.

“It’s Americana in an Acadiana way. It’s great stuff.”
