We saw amazing show here - for a mere $10 cover. The only negative part is that it was cold as hell in there. I'm sure in Summer the open air concept is welcome, but in November... read more

A great evening was enjoyed due to good people, music and ambiance. It is not fancy, but it felt "real", like you are getting true local flavor. We were their during a cajon jam session to experience Cajon music for the first time. And glad we did. We did not stay over night.

I'm sure in Summer the open air concept is welcome, but in November it was not comfortable. The bartender fixed me a 'hotty toddy' which helped.

I really like the atmosphere and vibe of the guesthouse and next door saloon but was disappointed by a few things. Choose your room carefully. Don't stay in the Bois Sec room. It has no windows and black mould in the air conditioning unit. It is basically flush up against - behind the stage with reverberations of base and drum... More

We were welcomed by a young woman named Erin. We enjoyed the musical stylings of Grammy nominee, Cedric Watson, and his new group, Karnival Kreole. We stayed in the Balcony room, and we had a blast! The music was awesome, but the warmth, charm, and hospitality from Erin was the highlight of our entire vacation. An amazing venue and an... More

We are in town from Alabama awaiting the birth of our first grandchild. We had read about the Blue Moon Saloon and had an hour to kill. We stopped by The Blue Moon at 4:45 on a rainy Thursday and had a delightful time. Matt the bartender could not have been friendlier. He suggested local restaurants and attractions. We thoroughly...

We had heard so much about this place and seen it on TV we just had to visit. It is a little difficult to find its not right in downtown even our cab driver was unsure. The bar is very atmospheric, drinks good reasonably priced and the band who were playing certainly got everyone dancing or at least tapping their... More

After dinner, we popped into the saloon, the opted popular spot for lively Cajun and Zydeco live music. Its tin-covered backyard deck attracts acts like The La Recolte Cajun band and our favourite exponent of Zydeco guitar, Paul Lil' Buck Sinegal. Any visit to Louisiana necessitates the carrying a pair of your best dancing boots because you are going to... More

We drove by and had a hard time finding the place. Not a lot of parking. One friend went inside to find that there was a cover charge of $20 pp due to a band playing that evening. so we decided to skip this venue.

This place is incredible. The sound is spot on and the staff is very friendly. There is a hostel that is very affordable. For about $20 you have a clean safe place to sleep so you dont have to worry about driving drunk. Highly recommended!

We've been on the road (from Texas to Key West and back) for ten days and our stay at the Blue Moon was our last night out. I was disappointed when I booked that we were staying on a Sunday night and there was nothing on their calendar for live music...but the venue was unique enough I booked anyway. When... More
