Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club in Biloxi

Miss your friends? Need to catch up, preferably over drinks? Fortunately, Morgan Freeman’s Ground Zero Blues Club in Biloxi promises to bring the excitement back to town. We still have a little time until it opens, but you can always drive by the future site at the District on Howard to see the progress.

More on the club

This isn’t the first Ground Zero Blues Club! In fact, the first one opened in Clarksdale, MS about 20 years ago in 2001. And soon, it will have a sister club, located in our very own hometown. It plans to feature live music, a delicious menu, and a good time for all.

And yes—it really is owned by the Morgan Freeman you’re thinking of, from films like The Dark Knight, Driving Miss Daisy, and The Shawshank Redemption. He will co-own the club along with Bill Luckett, who used to serve as the Clarksdale mayor, and Howard Stovall, an entertainment executive.

About the name

Here’s a little trivia for you! The Ground Zero Blues Club earned its name in reference to Clarksdale. The city has earned international acclaim due to its prominent role on the blues scene.

When will open?

We may not have to wait long for the new club to open! A tentative date is slated for November.

Where will it be located?

You probably know the previous Kress Building by sight, if not by name. Located at District on Howard in Biloxi, this historic 20,000-square-foot building has hosted entertainment in the past. Now, it has a bright new future!

The benefits

It’s not just a place to gather and have fun! Morgan Freeman’s Ground Zero Blues Club in Biloxi will also spur tourism to our town—much like the first club did for Clarkdale. In fact, the Clarksdale club even receives visitors from all over the world. So, we can look forward to some extra revenue—and a big boost to our economy.
