BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Spanish Moon, a former downtown music venue, will soon be transformed into a creative firm’s new headquarters.
The building was recently purchased by TILT to serve as its new workplace headquarters as it expands its team, according to Elfin Realty. Since 2005, TILT has provided its clients with design, branding, and digital marketing services.
“We’re thrilled to firmly plant our flag in such an iconic Baton Rouge building,” said Scott Hodgin, owner of TILT, in a press release.
According to The Advocate, Spanish Moon was put up for sale at the tail end of 2015. The music venue continued showcasing local and touring bands until announcing its closure due to renovations on its website in 2019.
Visit Baton Rouge gave a glimpse into Spanish Moon’s long and haunted history in a recent blog post. The article notes the building’s morbid past as a morgue during the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and previous uses as a feed store, jail, and firehouse since its construction in 1910.
