This is one of the best places to socialise and hear music in Clarksdale! It is a seasonal venue, and it is not always open, but my husband and I enjoyed the free music on several Wednesday nights recently. The New Roxy is one of my favourite places to take my friends when they are visiting Clarksdale. I have been... More

The New Roxy is a renovated, partially open-air theater, with awesome acoustics, lighting, and a way cool tiki bar. The New Roxy is undergoing a continual metamorphosis at the hands of the very cool owners, Robin Colonas and William Laidlaw. Though it is only open at present during festival season and during every-increasing longer visits by the owners, it is... More

A great venue formed from the shell of a former theatre. No roof so you look out into the Mississippi sky.

Robin has brought the soul out of this ex-movie theater and into the 21st c. Beautiful brick walls and absent roof make for a crisp musical space, albeit sans seating. I brought my own chair, though I swayed the night away. Perfect place to hear Big Damn Band and Lightning Malcolm.

Small Bar, open air old gutted theatre building out back - no restrooms! You need to make an adjustment for things in Clarksdale.... So button down your shirt and relax.

This place is an old theatre that the roof is missing, on a clear night you can look up and see the stars. Clarksdale, Ms has a great Blues festival in April. Not too big, not too small. Several places to go listen to the music. Some free some have a cover.

The roof fell in years ago, no problem the open sky is overhead. They have added a second smaller stage, more area above floor level to watch from. This is one of the most unique music venues you will ever experience.
