My Photographic Journey Around America

The Hollywood

Immortalized in the Marc Cohn classic “Walking in Memphis”, this is the famed Hollywood Café. And while Muriel Wilkins has since passed on and therefore no longer plays the piano on Friday, they still make some mean southern food here. Also of note, one of my favorite blues singers of all time Son House used to play here as well. If you’re ever in Tunica, Mississippi, I highly recommend stopping in for a bite.

Excellent Rec. for people in that area or going up from Clarksdale MS to Memphis Tn – btw – the Blues Museum is open in Memphis!! and the Grammy Museum opens March in Cleveland MS not far from the Po’ Monkey Lounge.

    • I couldn’t agree more. I saw the Blues Museum open in Memphis, but didn’t get to it, and I read about the one in Cleveland when I was there. Always happy to see more reasons for people to visit the Delta!
