While staying at The Fairview Inn in Jackson (see separate review) we were recommended by a member of the staff to try out Underground 119. We took a cab and when we arrived we were a bit dubious about the place as it was in a quiet street and was to all intents and purposes quite inconspicuous, being in the basement of a building (as the name would suggest). However, we proceeded down the steps and though the door and this lovely welcoming club greeted us. There is a cover charge but I can't remember exactly how much $5 or £10 each. There were only a few people there when we arrived but it was only 6.30pm. We sat at the bar and listened to the music for a while which was absolutely fabulous. We ordered some food which came up quite promptly. I had ordered fried green tomatoes and I have to say they were divine, absolutely delicious. The place started to flll up and within an hour was full. Everyone was extremely friendly, the bar staff were great with big friendly smiles and lots of other customers engaged us in conversation. The brilliant music continued throughout and by the last hour several people were up dancing.
Before leaving we had photos taken with the band, check out the size of Tiger the saxophonist, his playing was incredible and what a friendly guy.
I would thoroughly recommend this place to everyone, even if you're not keen on blues music the atmosphere is warm and friendly and the food brilliant. If you're in Jackson give it a try. If you have any questions please message me.
