The center of the Cajun universe: Fred’s Lounge in Mamou

In our never-ending quest to bring you the finest in music, food, and wine, we visited the center of the Cajun universe for Mardi Gras over the weekend: the legendary Fred’s Lounge in Mamou, Louisiana.

The town of Mamou covers just 1.4 square miles in central Louisiana but is the “Cajun capital of the world.”

You can read about the history of this amazing place (where everyone is welcomed, btw) here and here (the Fred Society).
