In the city of Clarksdale, Mississippi, you'll find one of the finest authentic blues clubs anywhere.
The Ground Zero Blues Club features live blues music several nights a week, and offers an appetizing food menu. This popular establishment is co-owned by actor Morgan Freeman, and has been profiled on numerous television programs and in many publications.
A truly relaxed atmosphere is present at Ground Zero Blues Club. From the worn couches on the front porch to the mismatched dining table chairs, the decor is unique. Customers at this Mississippi attraction are encouraged to sign their names or doodle on the walls, and almost everything else, with permanent markers. The food menu here includes items such as a catfish BLT sandwich, hot tamales, pulled pork barbecue sandwiches, burgers, peach cobbler, and pecan pie.
The Ground Zero Blues Club is aptly situated at 0 Blues Alley in Clarksdale, right next door to the Delta Blues Museum. Celebrity co-owner Morgan Freeman can sometimes be found at the restaurant, enjoying the delicious food. Directly above the blues club, there are also eight spacious apartments that are usually rented out as rooms by the night.
Whether you're there for the food, the live music, or a celebrity sighting, Ground Zero Blues Club is always a fun place to visit. You can even stay overnight, in the renovated apartments above the club, if so desired. Clarksdale is located near Tupelo, Mississippi and is easily accessible by major highways.
