It was closed when we were there, but worth stopping to read the sign, if nothing else. Use your imagination and the place comes alive. Close to the B.B. King Museum and Church Street.

Club Ebony was owned by BB King and from the outside it's rustic and old. It was closed and don't know if they keep regular hours. There are some signs outside that give a brief history of the place. It's not far from the museum...More

Whilst on a visit to BB's Museum, I couldn't miss out on a drive round to Club Ebony. Obviously the the place was closed during the day, but it was nice to take walk around soaking up the clubs history.

It's just around the corner from the BB King museum but it's not a very nice looking neighborhood. I guess it's only open once a week now. Interesting piece of blues history.

Got to hear some great music and learn more about a legendary club. We also got fed catfish and hush poppies and had a Pecan beer! Highly recommend it.

I would like to have been inside, but according to information on its frontpage on Facebook, they only open on Thursdays from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm, which is a sorrow. Outside, the venue looks very nice and is exciting to be in front of...More

You have to contact the King museum as it is part of it. I don't think they are open unless you do it in connection with the museum.
