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.
