Meet the people dedicated to ensuring your experience at The Cedar Saloon lives up to its name. We work day and night in order to ensure the smooth operation of the bar.



Shane Shows currently lives in Lakeland and was in the industrial business for 30+ years.  Shane is the sole proprietor of the Cedar Saloon and his goal is to make sure customers have a great experience each time they come.  Many locals know Shane's late grandfather, Elton Gauthier,  who ran the local drive in "Dairy Joy" that everyone loved.

Kate's ties to Pointe Coupee Parish go way back.  Although her parents raised her in Ville Platte, her mother was from New Roads.  In fact, her late grandfather, Ivey Lieux, along with his 2 brothers, were the owners of Lieux Chevrolet Company located off New Roads Street in New Roads.  Her late grandmother, Ella Lieux, was a school teacher and music supervisor for Pointe Coupee Parish schools for several years.  Kate moved to New Roads in 2017 and began managing The Cedar Saloon in January 2020.  She helps Shane Shows take care of the daily operations and financial aspects of the bar.  She's the perfect friendly face to be behind the bar!
