Friday night in clarksdale

I will be in clarksdale on friday 5/16 for a night and am looking for a central hotel that I can walk to several good blues clubs, have some good BBQ and several man sodas in celebration without the worry of driving afterwards. I hear that taxi service is hard to come by - any thoughts of where to stay? thanks in advance

Stay at the Clark House B&B. It's really your only choice. Just a five minute walk to all the blues bars. Drive to Abes BBQ, or walk to Larry's Tamales, for lunch. Walk to Yazoo Pass or Stone Pony for supper. Very safe town to walk around. Keep in mind that Clarksdale is a small, sleepy, southern town, rich in history. first stop should be Delta Blues Museum, then Ground Zero, Reds, etc. It will take two days and nights for a real blues experience.

We stayed at the Shack Up Inn, which is a couple of miles from town, they have live music every weekend + the Hobson Plantation is next door (they had live music too last Friday).

Now, you may think it too far from Town, but if you give Ground Zero a call, they'll come & pick you up (+ drop you back). They charge $5 per person per trip. Just give Barry a call direct on 901-606-5041

Check out the reviews of the Shack up inn.

If not GZ also do rooms too, but don't forget to visit ",Reds", it's excellent.

Wish I was back there lol
