A friend recommended Red's and we were so glad that we went. We had a great time and the music was phenomenal. The ceiling really needs a fix though! Just a little, so the old juke joint atmosphere is preserved.

A quintessential and authentic Delta blues juke joint, and one of very few still in existence. Heard great live music on a Wednesday night (thanks to Big A and his All-Stars). Cozy (to say the least), with limited beer selections, tight seating and standing, and...More

The first juke joint we were able to find. Saw an incredible musician there... Christone Kingfish Ingram. Bar itself had a good atmosphere

Don't let the cover fool you. Great blues inside and very friendly environment. Beers are cold and reasonably priced. Get there early for a good seat. Red is the man for some fine Blues.

For a feel of authentic blues clubbing in the south Red's is a place to be. The main lack of authenticity is that the audience was 95% made up of us tourists. Doesn't seem like a locals' place We got some very professional rock/blues. Red's...More

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
