Red Goose Saloon (Thibodaux Louisiana)
Red Goose Saloon 205 Phillips Street, Thibodaux, Louisiana, USA. There are 4 bars all next/ across from each other. We pick this one, the door was open and all the others were not open yet. This building was built in 1896 and in 1900 it opened as Red Goose Shoes. Red Goose Shoes closed down in 1976 and the Red Goose Saloon opened in 1979 but stayed with the Red Goose name. They still retain the Red Goose Shoes sign out front. They also have a few other Red Goose Shoes things inside including the old clock. There is a long straight sit-up bar that holds12 people and there are 4 tables, so not a big place. There is no beer on tap, all bottles. They did have wine for us. There are Video Gambling games. The washrooms were very clean and tidy. I am pretty sure they don't serve any food. The area behind the bar with the dark wood and drawers were from the old Red Goose Shoe store, nice piece. Smoking is permitted in this bar. There is a canal very close to the saloon, so we stopped for a look and there was an alligator swimming down the middle. That was a first for me and my wife! Try this place out, if for no other reason, you might see and alligator as well!
