History, elegance and charm come together at The Bank, one of the Mississippi Delta’s premier venues for unforgettable events. 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.
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).
