Antoon’s Update: What’s New, What’s Unique, What is Antoon’s Olympics

Have you hung out at Antoon’s lately? Maybe you should check it out and see what you’ve been missing! We sat down with Antoon’s staff to get an update on what’s been going on at everyone’s favorite bar.

Your patio is the perfect spot for any event, how do customers go about renting your patio?

The patio is an addition we added to Antoon’s when we purchased it in 2021. It is 2,000 square feet of covered patio with an outside bar. We rent the patio for different functions including all types of parties. We have a bandstand should you require one, large stereo speakers with a microphone and games such as corn hole, ring on a string and others. We have heaters, tables for food and other amenities.

Dates for the patio are filling up fast for the Christmas season. This is a perfect location for company parties, family gatherings, and Christmas parties. Contact Carolyn Benefield at 318-554-8089 to book an event.

“Toons Tuesday” was a staple for Antoon’s pre-COVID, are you planning to reinstate “Toons Tuesday”? If so, what will make it unique?

Antoon’s was closed for 20 months due to Covid. We have brought back “Toon’s Tuesday,” which the students at NSU started. They were looking for a place to hang out and socialize later in the evening. It is still going on today. We offer drink specials and entertainment on the patio. Come join the fun.

Do you offer specials for women?

Antoon’s is a great place for ladies to visit and unwind. Thursday evening is our designated “Lady’s Night.” We offer drink specials from 5-10 pm, especially for our ladies.

I have heard about Antoon’s Olympics, tell me more about what it entails and how to sign up?

The Antoon’s Olympics is a weekend established for the competitive-minded crowd. We had the inaugural Summer games this July and will have the Fall games soon. It was an overwhelming success. The teams are four-person teams. All compete in the same four to five games for a grand prize, bragging rights, and their names on a plaque. It is so competitive that 12 seconds separated the top three teams during the Summer games. We try to limit the number of teams to fifteen due to the number of games. All are skill games such as bottle up, cup flip, corn hole, ring on a string and a water cup relay were very comical. Check our Facebook page – Antoons- to see some of the games. The Fall games will look a little different but still just as competitive.

Do you offer a Happy Hour?

We have Happy Hour on Tuesday from 5 – 8 pm. In December we will be expanding it to every weekday from 5-8 pm. Happy Hour consists of reduced beer and cocktail pricing. We cater to the adult crowd from 4- 8 pm. College students usually come in after 9 pm. We are extremely pleased to be able to provide a social setting for two very different customer groups on the same day at the same location. Most places don’t have that versatility.

I know you have a great alcohol selection; do you have food available for consumers as well?

We have a food trailer on site at Antoon’s. The menu will rotate but mainstays are hamburgers, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches and tacos, boudin tacos, corn dogs, and fries. Jambalaya, chicken dumplings, all sorts of heated deli-style sandwiches, red beans, and rice, smothered pork chops and other offerings rotate during the week. We haven’t found anyone that has been disappointed. The trailer is open most nights usually from 8 pm until after midnight.

Other than Toons Tuesday and Ladies Night, what themed/special nights do you offer?

Our next project is to offer Karaoke on the Patio. Our customers have asked for Karaoke and we will kick it off very soon.
