Unique. Magical. Perfect.

The Guru, a unique venue in Baton Rouge that doubles as a community center, is located in the Circa 1857 complex on Government and 19th Streets just across from The Garden District.


Housed in an original 1920s mechanics garage, The Guru is a fusion of funky and serene.


Celebrate & Create

The perfect space for catered dinners, receptions, fundraisers, showers, acoustic music performances, art shows, meetings, recitals, classes and workshops. Inclusive atmosphere welcomes public discourse to unite the community, explore local culture and share common ground.


Heal & Restore

Smaller rooms in back have private entrance and accommodate a rotating schedule of intuitive and healing arts practitioners for the body, mind and spirit.


Endless Possibilities

The Guru offers hourly rates for day, night, weekdays and weekends. Chairs and tables are included in the rental fee for all events. Special rates available for student art shows and recitals. If you can imagine it, we probably can make it work.
