Wonderful venue for icon-level local music, which brings us from Houston and other places to Louisiana. Not sure Lafayette fully knows, appreciates and promotes (all three) everything authentically blues and zydeco it has to offer. But, when it does, Blue Moon is a great host. Cold beer, good sound -- except for the hour the sound man seemed to disappear.... More

This is a great place (and I think the bartenders are nice, by the way). Sometimes wish it were air-conditioned and had more places to sit, but the people and the atmosphere is the best!

Blue Moon is an interesting venue - it has a B&B above the music/bar area. At night, there is local music (I think they bring outside groups in as well). I has a rustic "barn" sort of feel to it. Very artsy. Something of a local institution.

I spent a night in Lafayette in a road trip, read somewhere about this music place, and just walked in on a Cajun jam session of some of the locals. I loved it! I loved that it had a very genuine feel, that it is just a sort-off shack place and not a real concert venue, that people were happy... More

We absolutely love this place...you can go on line and get their schedule...we prefer the nights when they have Cajun and Blues! Very rustic and a nice crowd of mixed ages and you can always strike up a conversation with another visitor or the locals! We always go to the Blue Moon when in Lafayette!

While I did not stay at the Blue Moon Saloon's guesthouse, I had heard too many great things about the bar to pass it up. I visited on a Saturday night. There was a $10 cover, but three great local bands played starting around 9:30pm. I liked the bands so much that I even bought one of their CDs (I... More

I stayed at the Blue Moon Guesthouse about 3-1/2 years ago while on a volunteer vacation (disregard the date of visit below - March 2009 wasn't an option). Everyone there was top-notch: the staff, the guests and the bands. Even though I live in NY, I tell any touring bands or anyone I know who may be visiting Louisiana that... More

I was staying at the Blue Moon Guesthouse; therefore, spent many evenings at the Blue Moon Saloon which is litterally the back porch of the guesthouse. It's nothing fancy, quite rustic, and a great place to hear great music. The staff is awsome, the patrons are friendly (a mix of locals and guests), and the drinks are yummy. And of... More
