This week, the Hayride Scandal team announced the concept for their newly acquired spot on Government Street. The new spot, Pelican to Mars, will be a more casual space but remain true to Hayride’s love for historical cocktails.
Pelican to Mars. I don’t understand the name’s reference but it’s strange and intriguing and I think I love it. They will be open 7 days a week at Government Street and Eugene, across from Baton Rouge High in the space formerly occupied by The Collective. They hope to open mid-summer.
The interior will have mid-century vibes, and the garage doors will lead out to a patio with grills. I’m picturing that hip neighbor’s house party that you wish you could get invited to.
They are creating a traditional tiki-style cocktail menu (excited to get my hands on some traditional daiquiris!) and will also include 34 beers and 6 wines on tap.
There is nothing a Mid-City resident cherishes more than the true neighborhood vibes of the area. If you can bring that into a bar, it it’s sure to be the area’s new favorite watering hole – especially when you consider their plans to encourage people to bring their pups!
