History of the Middleton Bar Center:
Once called the old Dupuy Pharmacy building, the Middleton Bar Center was built in 1912 and housed several different types of businesses over the years until it was purchased in the late 1990s by the BRBA. After being completely rennovated, the building became the new home of the BRBA in October 2000. The building was named after Frank W. Middleton, Jr., the long-time attorney and family friend of Paula Manship, who donated to the BRBA the seed money that was used to purchase the building and surrounding property. The exposed exterior brick walls and the preserved original ironwork on the balcony are two of the design elements that visitors to the building comment about most frequently.
Located in the heart of downtown Baton Rouge, the Middleton Bar Center is a convenient drive to the main courthouses as well as to both I-10 and I-12. LSU and the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center is to the south of downtown Baton Rouge, while Southern University Law Center and the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport are just a little further going northwest on Interstate 110.
Side street and meter parking are available along Main and Sixth streets. Garage parking is available in the state parking tower across the street from the Middleton Bar Center. Entrance is on North Street; exit is on Main Street.
