New Community Retail Center At Conway To Feature Upscale Wine Bar & Restaurant

June 28, 2022 – Baton Rouge, LA – Currently under construction, Conway Village Center is scheduled to open later in 2022 and will feature several retail suites for businesses seeking proximity to the 344-acre, master-planned community Conway.

Situated at the entrance to Conway and fronting Highway 44, this community retail center will create a welcoming atmosphere for visitors and is conveniently within walking or biking distance for Conway residents. Developers Bart Waguespack and Ross Berthelot have taken great care to create a relaxed and inviting retail experience with outdoor seating, deep sidewalks, large planters, and a modern design.

The first tenant set to join the center is Library Wine & Provisions, a new sophisticated restaurant concept that combines a curated library of wines with a unique and imaginative menu to create an experience Gonzales has never seen before.

The venture is the creation of local developer and entrepreneur Bart Waguespack. Along with two partners, Mickey Martin and Ronnie George, Waguespack is planning to deliver something that will not only be a draw for Gonzales residents but attract patrons from Baton Rouge and New Orleans as well.

“We’re aiming for a sophisticated, upscale atmosphere that will be totally unique for Ascension and be a lure for folks outside of Gonzales,” says Bart Waguespack. “But you won’t be forking out hundreds of dollars for this experience. We want you to enjoy our creative recipes and unique wine pairings and be able to visit us regularly.”

Waguespack has enlisted David Dickensauge as Chef Consultant on the concept to lead the curation of the menu items and creation of Library’s unique recipes. “David has been incredible. His attention to detail and creativity has produced a menu that is totally unique and incredibly enticing”, says Bart.

Bringing his passion and expertise for wine is restaurant manager and part owner, Mickey Martin. “Having a guy like Mickey on board is what really made me comfortable to take on this venture in the first place,” admits Waguespack. “I absolutely love seeing customers experience something new, unexpected, and memorable. Finding and delivering the perfect match of flavors on the plate and in the glass is my passion,” says Mickey. “We can’t wait to open the doors!”

Library Wine & Provisions will be located in Conway Village Center and open for dinner only Tuesday – Saturday.

Also recently announced is Conway Village Center’s second tenant, Faithful Friends Animal Hospital veterinary clinic. Dr. Talesha Brown and her team will be located in Suite 101 and will be an excellent veterinary resource not only for Conway residents who can walk to their clinic, but also to surrounding neighborhoods in the Gonzales market.
