Ground Zero Blues Club


If it doesn’t have a pool table, mismatched chairs, and strings of holiday lights, it’s not a true blues club. You’ll find all three, and more, at this dilapidated-on-purpose juke joint co-owned by Academy Award–winning actor (and Mississippi Delta native) Morgan Freeman. Veterans such as Guitar Shorty and T-Bone Pruitt play here Wednesday through Saturday evenings. The kitchen serves up WeekDay Plate Lunches and specialty sandwiches like grilled catfish BLTs. If you’re looking for a 24/7 blues experience, rent one of the retro upstairs apartments for a night.
