Ground Zero Blues Club

IN CLARKSDALE, MS

Serving up down home blues and southern cooking for 21 years!

Located at Ø Blues Alley next door to the Delta Blues Museum in the heart of historic downtown Clarksdale.



Where it began

Clarksdale, Mississippi has long been described as "Ground Zero" for blues aficionados from around the globe. It all started here.

 

The town has been home to musicians that changed the world including: Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Sam Cooke, Charlie Patton, Robert Johnson, WC Handy, Ike Turner, Charlie Musselwhite, Christone 'Kingfish' Ingram , Lucious Spiller, and Anthony 'Big A' Sherrod to name a few. That's why we created Ground Zero Blues Club® — to celebrate the area's rich blues heritage and to provide a venue in which it can continue.

Ground Zero Blues Club® opened in 2001. Owned by Morgan Freeman (yes, that Morgan Freeman); Eric Meier; Howard Stovall;  and the late Bill Luckett. Ground Zero Blues Club® is the place for anyone looking for an authentic Delta Blues experience.
