absolutely old-school hole in the wall juke joint dive. we saw an incredible show here. it looks like someone's ratty basement but it's the real deal. So much better than the better-known venues in clarksdale. it's such a rundown place, we thought it was closed!...More

An absolute juke joint that you have to experience. The decor is fantastic in red lights with birthday banners & Christmas garland left over for many years.

You have to stop at Red's if you are in Clarksdale. One of the best blues places left in town. Great music, great people. There is a small cover fee, but it's worth it!

All the locals said this was the real deal in blues clubs. Definitely run down but authentic delta blues.

This place is the real deal. If you want a real juke experience, just go here. Ask no more questions. You found it. Reds food is great too, if he is cooking.

I spent my birthday here this year and it was wonderful. A very small intimate venue, very basic but who cares when the blues is so good!!

I do not know. You need to call and ask them, as things tend to change.

Probably depends on the teenager. It is a little rough around the edges, but I would have taken mine when they were in their teens.

Not sure if Red's is open on Wednesday night. I was thinking they were a weekend only place. I would check the Cathead website. I think they have the Clarksdale schedules. There will be something open. You could even call... More
