Owner description: The Bradfordville Blues Club experience is like no other. It combines a truly unique location and atmosphere with the best the Blues has to offer. Hidden in a rural part of Tallahassee, the experience begins when you travel down the winding dirt roads and up the hill that lead to the Club. Surrounded by fields of tall stalks of corn and old majestic oak trees dripping with moss, the one room cinder block “juke joint” has hosted an impressive list of nationally renowned Blues acts. The more than 50 original portraits autographed by the “Kings and Queens” of the Blues, which serve as table tops and wall hangings, attest to the quality of our entertainment. The Club is open on Friday and Saturday nights and offers a good selection of ice-cold bottled beers and wine. Just follow the tiki torches down the dirt roads till you reach the juke joint under the stars. We’ll keep the bonfire burning, the beer ice-cold and the music hot!

If in Tallahassee on a Friday night you have to go! The music is great and there was enough space to dance. Love this place and look forward to going again when in Tallahassee!

Tallahassee is basically a cultural wasteland. Great football. Zero arts. Really.

So this little juke joint is way out of the way. Up on the edge of the burbs.

But if you are an adult and like music and like a cool funky vibe, this place is magic.

Call ahead. Get a table. Enjoy yourself.

Tip - you're not bar hopping and the driving to this place. It's way out of midtown. And adults go here. Leave the kiddie Busch light nonsense on the strip.

Went on a double date after purchasing out tickets online from their website. When we arrived we were greeted by happy people and taken to the tables they reserved for us. The live music was top notch and the other patrons love to dance and do it well, which was a nice surprise. At the break we went out to the bonfire and got some delicious fried catfish and fries from the lady in the shack out back. It was actually so good we went back for more. $10 a plate. Heads up, they only have beer and wine available. This place is a cinder block building in the backwoods and decorated with a down home feel that I personally found very appealing and real. Highly recommended for anyone that enjoys authenticity and diverse people of all shapes and sizes getting together and being beautiful.

The Blues Club was off the beaten path and well worth the trip. Although the appearance outside is modest, the club was comfortable and cool on a summer night. The performers - Mem Shannon and the Membership were well worth the trip from Charleston, SC. The audience itself was fun and friendly. The waitress was energetic and service excellent. A great event and memory maker.

I visited the Bradfordville Blues Club with my son and his girlfriend and had the pleasure of hearing the Selwyn Birchwood Band perform. This was our second visit to this venue and we were all blown away by the amazing talent of Mr. Birchwood and his bandmates. I'm glad we made reservations ahead of time as the place was packed!

During the break we enjoyed the warmth of the bonfire just outside. I had forgotten about the crab shack serving fried catfish and french fries...we didn't try the catfish, but the fries were great!

One of the reasons I love this place is that it isn't like any other place you will find. For a unique experience I highly recommend this blues club!
