First trip to Lafayette, Breaux Bridge and this part of the country. Stopped in for the Cajun dancing at La poussiere and it was one of the most fun and satisfying events of a lifetime of travel. We were approached by several of the locals...More

My favorite cajun band in the heart of cajun country at a dance hall opened in 1955 . Could it get better. ABSOLUTELY NOT. Simple, classic and as real it it can get. A real dance hall... lots of tables and chair chairs around the...More

I attended La Poussiere on a Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. On both occasions I was greeted at the door by Judy. She and her husband are responsible for maintaining this tradition, started by the family many years earlier. After her friendly welcome, I enjoyed...More

We visited on a Sunday afternoon. We received a friendly greeting at the door, and immediately began enjoying the Cajun music of Jackie Caillier. The building is old, but they had a great dance floor and it brought back memories of yesteryear. Door and drink...More

The last of the real Cajun Dancehalls! The dancefloor is perfection. The music always great. The drinks are cheap, and the people are welcoming and wonderful!

Went here on a Sat. night. Arrived about 30mins after it opened. Parking is tight but we found one of the last few places in a neighboring business which was closed at the time. $10 cover per person to get in but beer is relatively...More

It's a small place in Breaux Bridge that's been there for 60 years. Still run by the same family. I don't know how, but it gets the best bands cajun music has to offer. Cheap drinks, nice people.

A genuine Cajun dance hall, one of a kind in the shrinking pool of places like it. Just go! Great music always & you can meet & talk to the friendly Cajun regulars or the regular out-of-owners who frequent La Poussière when they're in town....More
