-Smoot's Grocery takes great pride in bringing in artists from all corners and showcasing local talent.



A restored Juke Joint, Smoot's is in the historic heart of downtown Natchez, overlooking the Mighty Mississippi, facing the riverwalk along the bluff. The original Smoot’s Grocery was a small grocery store during the day and a happening Juke Joint by night. The little tin building with all its charm was originally owned and operated by George Henry Smoot and his wife, Gertrude. The quaint store continued to hold onto its charm even though it had fallen into disrepair after closing in the 1970s. Local resident Dub Rogers, a visionary, restored the store into an up and coming live music venue. Using reclaimed wood and repurposed materials, this once convenient store is now home to weekly live music performances after being bought in 2017.  Smoot's prides itself on hosting the best local talent and bringing in a wide assortment of musicians from all around. 

Smoot's in a lively place with a full bar. We have nightly live music, and if you happen to stroll in on Sunday, you may find yourself immersed in a full-on jam session hosted by one of our local talented musicians.
