Opening: January 2024
Between 1939 and the late 1960s, the Dew Drop Inn hosted a slew of iconic Black musicians (think: Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Ray Charles, Little Richard, Marvin Gaye and Etta James). The former music venue has been reimagined as a stylish 17-room hotel set to open in January. The design-forward property will feature Art Deco and midcentury modern design elements, and each guest room will pay homage to a musical or cultural icon who left a mark on the inn through art, photographs, artifacts and other ephemera. There’ll also be an on-site pool, bar, patio area and a 410-person music venue.
