Happy’s Irish Pub going in River Ranch

The first Happy’s Irish Pub in Lafayette is set to open this fall in the River Ranch traditional neighborhood development.

Work is set to begin in early July on the 3,500-square-foot bar, which will be located at 1315 Camellia Blvd., in the space formerly occupied by Main Street Bar & Grill. Happy’s will feature more than 100 beers on tap, along with a bar stocked with Irish whiskey, scotch and bourbon. The bar will feature an outdoor beer garden and space for live entertainment.

This will be the fourth location for Happy’s, which has locations in downtown Baton Rouge and on Coursey Boulevard and on Poydras Street in New Orleans.

Happy’s is a sister concept to Walk-On’s, which has been in Lafayette for about three years. “We hope the people in Lafayette will welcome us with open arms just as they have with Walk-On’s,” said Brandon Landry, co-owner and founder of Walk-On’s Enterprises.
