Sunday morning in Clarksdale, my friend took me to the unbelievably cool Shack Up Inn, where we ate at their restaurant RUST. Shack Up Inn is located on the former Hopson Plantation and features minimally modernized sharecropper cabins (“the ritz we ain’t”) as well as rooms in the cotton gin and other outbuildings. The Inn is a music venue, featuring regular performances as well as being a large venue for the annual Juke Joint Festival. Our food was fantastic and despite being unsure of a cocktail menu featuring only beer- and cider- based drinks, my “Hillbilly Cocktail” of orange juice and cider was pretty great.
