Overview

Photos and Description of the Clarksdale vacation apartment rental

Apartment-Full Kitchen/Full Bathroom/Washer & Dryer-sleeps 2, Free Netflix/wifi

The Holy Moly is a revitalized historic building in the downtown blues precinct of Clarksdale.

Originally built as a masonic temple, it was purchased in 2012 by an Australian couple who have worked creatively to revitalize the building and help bring life, art, and music back to the streets of downtown. The Eastern Star executive suite has been designed for staying in comfort for a few days (to take in the delights of Downtown) or for medium to long term stays (to work on a creative project, record an album, develop a show, write a book, or make a film in the area). This studio apartment is quite spacious at over 900 square feet, and has 14 foot high ceilings, a full kitchen with all new appliances, a full bathroom with a bathtub, and a washer & dryer. The king-size bed has a great view of the Activated TV (and complimentary WiFi is included). Heating & air-conditioning is operated by the guests in residence. The Eastern Star executive suite is situated on the ground floor [no stairs] of The Holy Moly, and it is elegantly-comfortable, whilst sticking to the true Delta traditions of resourcefulness and creative re-use. The unique decorative style could be described as part 'industrial,' part 'artist’s loft,' combined with a whimsical 'feminine aesthetic.' The owners of this apartment, originally drawn to the area from their interest in the Delta Blues and in the arts in general, are both musicians. They strive to encourage those interested in the arts to visit and enjoy the evolving culture, blues history and unique eating experiences that Downtown Clarksdale provides. Leave your car parked at the front door of your suite, and walk everywhere-- only a few hundred feet in any direction --for attractions, ATMs, restaurants, museums, and groceries. Explore the detail, in detail, whilst having the opportunity to meet others who live, work, and visit downtown Clarksdale from all over the world. Many visitors, like the owners of The Holy Moly, have fantasies of visiting and staying longer in the Delta....... The standard run of hotels and motels can be found anywhere in any regional town, but people looking for an unforgettable and unique Mississippi Delta experience may do well to start their search for their new Delta home, even if it’s only for a few days, right in the heart of it. In 2014 the Mississippi Delta was declared a 'National Treasure' by the U.S. Department of Interior.

The Eastern Star executive suite is situated on the ground floor of The Holy Moly, a beautiful historic building right in the centre of the downtown blues precinct. The Holy Moly has four apartments on the ground floor, three of which are lived-in and worked-in by people involved in the cultural economy of Clarksdale.

Right on the corner of the building, The Holy Moly Drug Store provides a wonderful place to indulge in good coffee and old-school ice cream treats like sundaes and banana splits. The Holy Moly Theatre and Temple of Treats will open in early 2015, as part of the revitalisation of the building's second floor, making the Eastern Star executive suite a great place to stay if you or yours are involved in one of the shows, or if you wish to be close to the fun.

Just across the road you'll find the visitor’s information centre, housed in the delightfully-restored art deco Greyhound Bus Station. The delicious Dutch Oven bakery is also across the road. The new Pinkbar, with its great food, bar, and late hours, is only 150 feet away. Oxbow restaurant with its modern twist on Delta quisine is one block down the street. Yazoo Pass is one dogleg block away, for a great salad bar and general dining. Within two easy-walking blocks you'll find: Stony Pony Pizza, Delta Amusements, an original local Clarksdale restaurant; Dreamboat Jerry’s, a lovely place for delicious BBQ; Ground Zero Blues Club with live music, good food, and beverages; and Fred's Super Dollar Store for groceries.

Real Delta art gallery is housed in part of The Holy Moly. Hambone Music & Art Gallery is just two short blocks away, as is the Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art store. Lambfish, Foxtrot, Give me Gumbo, and Sun House galleries are all less than a five-minute walk away. The Delta Blues Museum and the Rock & Blues Museum are both only one block away.

The New Roxy music venue is only a short stroll down Issaquena Avenue. Red's, a real-deal juke joint, is within a 500-yard walk. Bluesberry, a local music venue, is right around the corner from The Holy Moly. The Delta Museum Stage is one block away, where free local music concerts are held.

There is a wine and spirits shop and convenience store within a five-minute walk, as is the U.S. Post Office and many banks. Two pharmacies are available, within less than a five-minute walk.
