This place was part of our blues field trip and interesting to read about it. Don’t know if it is still open or not but a great place to check out.

As might be deciphered from earlier posts, Po' Monkey's is (or was) a quintessential Delta blues juke joint that shuttered after its owner passed away about a year ago. We heard stories and rumors about plans to reopen it, but we have no idea if...More

I spent many great evenings here as a guest of Willie Seaberry--who sadly passed away recently. Not sure what the long-term outlook is, but it's hard to imagine it surviving much longer without him. Willie was Po' Monkey, and Po' Monkey's.

I was looking forward to seeing you again on my trip there next week. So sorry to hear of your passing. You were a delight to be with and you will be missed by all those who ever met you.

It was closed, but still an authentic piece of history. It is a functioning juke joint, so probably can't go in with kids. And if you come in the daytime, it's locked up.

This was fun, certainly an adventure to find, full of locals AND visitors. The owner who told us his name was "Po Monkey" performed humorous skits. He was keeping an eye on everything all the while, making sure all felt welcome. I only wish there...More

I got there around 9 and everything was in full swing. You could go probably as early as 8. It seems like things shut down around 1.
