What Started the Flame

The Bougie Bar is owned and operated by candle experts, Jamie and Rusty Phillips. It’s a place to have some fun, sip some wine, and make the perfect candle with your friends or family!

Jamie fell in love with the art of candle making back in 2008, where he made and sold homemade candles in 8 oz. mason jars. From there, he opened his first candle business at the early age of 18, named Ambiance Candle Company. He eventually re-branded to Bourbon Royalty Candle Company in 2013.

Over the years, Jamie and Rusty were asked by friends and family if they could host private parties at the Bourbon Royalty warehouse. They both had a vision for a future candle-making party experience, and knew that there was no place like it in Lafayette, or even Louisiana! After some consideration, The Bougie Bar was officially born! 

Jamie and Rusty are so excited to give the people of Lafayette and surrounding areas a new, fun, and exciting experience!
