Red's Lounge

Red's Lounge? It's the definition of a real-deal Mississippi juke joint. Don't expect to be spoiled with amenities. All you need is a been-there-done-that owner, some beers as big as your head and some "live" blues you'll never forget. (Oh, and MAYBE something out front on the grill.) This is how blues became blues... how the music grew up out of the cotton fields and onto a round piece of vinyl. Speaking of which, the building itself was called "Levine's Music Center" back in the day, and it's where Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm bought the instruments that played the first rock 'n roll song. Yeah, Red's is the real thing for sure...

Stone Pony Pizza

In June 2009, the idea of a gourmet pizza restaurant, located in the heart of Downtown Clarksdale, was born. The owners, Buddy Bass and Joe Weiss, cousins, are 4th generation Clarksdaleians who are proud of the history of Clarksdale and the new possibilities that await. With teenage, twenty and thirty year old children of their own, their idea was to create a place where kids and families would feel comfortable dining and relaxing. Second, they wanted to create a location that visitors to Clarksdale would enjoy and experience our local fare.

Christone "Kingfish" Ingram

Christone “Kingfish” Ingram’s love of music grew from the rich Gospel sounds emanating from his family’s church and the Blues music he regularly heard played in his Delta neighborhood. A cousin to legendary Country music great, Charlie Pride and trained at the Delta Blues Museum under the tutelage of Daddy Rich and Bill Howl-N- Madd Perry, Kingfish undoubtedly has music in his soul. At the tender age of 6, Kingfish began playing the drums. Three years later, he took up the bass guitar. By the age of 13, he began playing lead guitar. Soon he was fluent in all three instruments and quickly added smooth vocals to his musical repertoire. Kingfish's guitar influences run the gamut from the Delta Blues of Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, and Lightnin' Hopkins to the electric Blues of B.B. King, Big Jack Johnson, Lefty Dizz, Albert King and Buddy Guy to the Rock of Jimi Hendrix, Prince and Eddie Hazel. Not only can Kingfish play in the styling of his idols and mentors, but he also has an amazing ability to create guitar sounds entirely his own.

Hopson Plantation Commissary

The Hopson Plantation Commissary stands today in much the same condition as in its glory days over fifty years ago. The building is full of antique and historical items which create a nostalgic atmosphere reminiscent of the deep south Delta. In 1935 the Hopson Plantation began a monumental changeover to become one of the first completely mechanized cotton operations in the world. In the fall of 1944, International Harvester introduced the first cotton picker on the Hopson farm making it the first in the world to grow and harvest a commercial acreage of cotton produced completely by mechanical methods. Today the commissary has indoor and outdoor stages with weekly entertainment and is available for dinners and receptions.

Stone Gas Blues Band with Shine Turner

The Stone Gas Band was the house band at Margaret's Blue Diamond in Clarksdale's New World district for many years. Fronted by the late harmonica player and songwriter Artheice "Gas Man" Jones, this local blues band earned a strong following and praise from audiences and critics for delivering tight, solid performances. The legend continues with the skillful guitar licks of Andrew "Shine" Turner, whose father was Ike Turner's first cousin, and who gigged and recorded with drummer Sam Carr and his Delta Jukes.

Abe's BBQ

Abraham Davis founded his first business in 1924 named Bungalow-Inn, located on Fourth Street; now called Martin Luther King Boulevard, where his excellent Bar-B-Q reputation spread across North Mississippi and Mid-South. The business moved to the crossroads of U.S. 49 & 61 where legend has it that the Delta blues king, Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil and the blues was born. Itís very possible that Robert Johnson, while sitting on a Coca-Cola case under one of the sycamore trees that was prominent at that corner back then, eating an Abeís Bar-B-Q made that legendary deal. It is a fact that Abraham Davis surrendered his soul to eat lunch, and coined the words to Abeís famous sauce, THE COME BACK SAUCE: Once youíve eaten our sandwich, you have to come back for more. In 1960 the business was renamed Abeís Bar-B-Q, horning Abe Davis, its founder.

The world famous onion ring and salad recipe used today, are the same recipe the Rossi’s used in 1937. In 2010, local musician John Mohead purchased and reopened this memorable piece of Mississippi history. The building hadn’t changed in 70 years. The same knotty pine paneling, the same uneven floors, the same tiny bathrooms... Eighty years later we think Kathryn and Frank would approve.

Nelms Mitchell started the Ranchero Restaurant in 1959 in a one room concrete building that catered almost exclusively to a teenage crowd. By 1976, almost 20 years later, it had become the place where the same teenagers brought their families. The Ranch (to which the Ranchero is often referred) just seemed to grow up with those first teenagers. Through the years, The Ranchero has not only earned the reputation for outstanding food and a great place to bring the family, it has also become a picture gallery of sports memorabilia. The Nelms Mitchell family takes great pride in those items brought in by local customers. You are invited to stroll through the restaurant and enjoy the treasures and priceless memorabilia of the Ranch's customers and loyal patrons

Ground Zero Blues Club Apartments

Available for nightly rental or extended stay. Ground Zero Blues Club Apartments are located above Ground Zero Blues Club® in what was once a cotton-grading warehouse. Up until the mid-20th century sellers to the company submitted cotton samples, and the fibers were then graded visually against a skylight by the keen eyes of some of Mississippi’s most talented cotton experts. A value description was then assigned based on the quality of the cotton. Cotton companies had a unique professional jargon for various qualities, and it is from there that we named our individual apartments. Don’t be fooled, however: each Delta Cotton Company Apartment is a gem, the only differences being in décor and number of accommodations

Shack Up Inn

Mississippi's Oldest B & B est. 1998 (Bed & Beer). Virtually unchanged from when it was a working plantation, you will find authentic sharecropper shacks, the original cotton gin and seed houses and other outbuildings. Whether you're looking for an overnight stay on your way to Memphis or Chicago or New Orleans or you need to stay longer to conduct historic blues business, and or monkey business, the Shack Up Inn will add a new dimension to your stay in the Delta. As you sit in the rocker on the porch, tipping a cold one while the sun sinks slowly to the horizon, you just might hear Pinetop Perkins radiatin' the 88's over at his shack. Perhaps, if you close your eyes even Muddy or Robert or Charlie might stop to strum a few chords in the night.
