Went to Red's on a Sunday night, still a bit depressed about the election. Had been to Ground Zero night before and had a good time, but it was a pretty sanitary experience. Had some concern going into Red's. The building appears to be upright for no good reason. There was junk everywhere. The guy at the door got the... More

Reds was recommended to us over the more famous Ground Zero Blues and we were happy with what we were recommended. The place looks run down from the outside but inside it is fine. It only deals in cash and mainly has beers, not the place to go to for wines or spirits. However it is the place to visit... More

My wife and I loved this place! Authentic juke joint experience! We were made to feel welcome by Red and the band. We arrived early to get a table right up front.

In this place is possibile to go deep inside the blues. It's in the air, in the corners, in Red's eyes. It's everywhere. Very good beers also.

After exhausting all of my cash we decided to go to Red's Lounge. Only takes cash. Looked interesting inside,however had a real bad odor to the place. Probably won't go back even with cash.

Great time. The closest thing to a real juke joint experience we found. Cool place. Great music (we saw Bilbo Walker!!). We also met and spent time with the owner - great guy and fun to talk to. We really enjoyed it!!

If you are in Clarksdale, you have to go to Red's Lounge. This is classic juke joint - a dive bar with character. As beat up and worn as the place is, the accoustic were amazingly good. When we were there, it was so crowded that we could not get a drink. But the music was good and the crowd... More

Red's is a must visit if in Clarksdale, a real Blues dive/juke joint. A huge bbq sits on the street smoking away when fired up. You enter into a ramshackle room with plastic hanging from the ceiling, neon lights, fairy lights, a live band on stage and a mish-mash of tables and chairs. The bar had a selection of bottled...

On our way down Blues Alley from Memphis to New Orleans, we were apprehensive about being too 'tourist-y' but Red's Lounge was great music, great people, great experience!
