Love this small bar. Prices are reasonable. Only sold beer when we were there, so not sure if that is the norm. Usually only open at night. Great music scene and friendly staff

One of the last great and authentic “juke joints”, Reds is a must go stop for anyone in or near Clarksdale. While it looks permanently closed from the outside, the inside comes alive with music on the weekends and weeknights when there is a festival...More
