Red Stick Social, a community gathering space that will feature a bowling alley, live music venue, restaurant and bar, is set to open Feb. 1 at the old Entergy site on Government Street.

The managers of the facility gave the press and community leaders a tour of the nearly 30,000-square-foot facility Thursday. Dozens of onlookers walked through the brick building, while workers painted and installed bowling lanes.

“This is the coolest building in Baton Rouge,” said Akheil Shah, an architect and project manager for DNA Workshop. Dyke Nelson, who founded DNA Workshop, is one of the developers of the Electric Depot, which will be anchored by Red Stick Social.
