When you see the outside of this former Masonic lodge, you might think it is being used as a library or office. In fact, it is a rock ‘n roll and art venue from top to bottom. Several visual artists share the lower floors and the first floor former gym is used as a photography studio, gallery space and a bar. The artists’ work can be seen throughout the building. The top floor is a fully equipped music studio. The original masonic ceremony chamber has been converted into a 3,000 sft. performance space that doubles as the largest sound-proofed recording studio in the region. Fans of Walk the Moon will be excited to learn that their “Talking is Hard” album was written in this room. Original masonic details can be seen on doorknobs, floors and walls, while quirky taxidermy, graffiti murals and checkerboard ceilings express the artistic inclinations of the current owners. With its growing reputation, the Lodge is now drawing other artists, musicians and producers to the river cities.
