The History

Built in 1930, the former Bank of Clarksdale — with its neoclassical design — features a towering interior ceiling in the main room with skylights, marble columns and sculptural accents. The building covers 12,000 square feet, easily accommodating groups large and small. Located in downtown Clarksdale, The Bank’s open floor plan allows for customizing any type and size event, from weddings, parties, dances, fundraisers, concerts, business meetings, conferences, galas, and more. 

  • Just Incredible!

    An incredible space in an incredible town. Love the history and the hospitality of the management team. They ensured we had our best company retreat ever. Cannot thank you enough!

  • A Beautiful Place

    What a beautiful place to host a variety of events. It was perfect space for our company meetings. Looking forward to coming back to Clarksdale because of such a great experience!

  • Elegant

    While preparing for our 35th Clarksdale High School Class of 1980 reunion we wanted it to be somewhere truly special…somewhere memorable.  We needed a place that would showcase Clarksdale and what Clarksdale had become.  Many of our classmates had not seen Clarksdale since graduation. Where better to have it than right in the middle of downtown Clarksdale with restaurants, lodging and blues clubs close by? The Bank topped all of these things off with its eloquent appearance. Working with Mr. O'Keefe was a huge plus as he did everything he could to accommodate us. We would highly recommend The Bank.

  • Couldn't Have Been Better!

    My experience at The Bank could not have been more enjoyable.  Bubba O'Keefe was most enjoyable to work with.  The florist, event planner and the rental company all commented on his hospitality.  He was always available to open The Bank whenever needed and willing to do anything to make our event perfect. The Bank was very clean and a wonderful place to host a party due to its uniqueness, flow, location and history.  I cannot wait to have another party there!!  Clarksdale is very lucky to have The Bank and Bubba!

In The Movies…

Besides its former life as the Bank of Clarksdale, the building was also home to the Clarksdale Press Register for many years, and was more recently featured in the film adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s best-selling novel The Help. The Bank was the setting for the offices of the local newspaper The Jackson Journal in the Academy Award nominated film (the name plate used on set can still be seen on the front doors today).
