The Blue Moon Saloon opened in April of 2002 on the back porch of the Blue Moon Guesthouse and has since become one of America’s premier venues for roots music from around the world. This world famous honky tonk is a home-grown place where all kinds and sizes are welcome, the Saloon is more than a venue or a gig. It has become a meeting place where world travelers, community organizations, families, artists and politicians rub elbows, dance, drink a few and thank their lucky stars they have the good fortune to spend an evening together in Lafayette, LA. This little house was moved several blocks from its original location downtown for the construction of The Gordon Hotel which welcomed travelers visiting Lafayette during the early 1900s. Today, the Gordon Hotel houses office space and this little home has become the place that welcomes travelers from near and far. The house was moved in 1900 using mules and logs and has since been a family home, a flower shop and NOW the Blue Moon Guest House.
