Missy Sippy Blues & Roots Club

Blues & Roots Club

Since the 6th of March, 2015, you can find a contemporary juke joint in the historical heart of the city of Ghent. It has been installed behind a century-old facade and is called Missy Sippy Blues & Roots Club.
The old-fashioned interior with imposing pictures and cosy design give the place that special feel of a beautiful 21st-century Blues bar.
You can find us in the street “Klein Turkije” on number 16.
That is the street connecting the “Korenmarkt” with the townhall, next to the Saint Nicolas church. Your New Orleans in Europe. “Missy Sippy, the place you call home!”

Who we are

Missy Sippy is a cozy and beautiful bar, open 7 days a week. On many occasions we organise concerts, jams and other types of live music. Hosts Marie and Jelle corteously invite you in and are assisted by a strong team of bartenders. They serve with a smile, know how to enterain you and prepare drinks and barbites with passion and expertise. Don’t miss out on our seasonal cocktails!

Let yourself be seduced by the friendly atmosphere of this barrelhouse, imagine yourself in a sweaty juke joint on the banks of the Mississippi and dance the night away! Let’s boogie! You will leave with a smile on your face!

What we do

We are keeping the blues, jazz, rootsmusic and swing alive. On a weekly base, we organise concerts, jams, dj-sets and dance nights. Miss Billie or Miss Bessie resonate trough the club and will make you feel at home.
Missy Sippy Blues & Roots Club offers a rich program. No flaming guitars with neon or pictures of Harley’s, but a good feeling for the real music and a sense of quality are the strong points of our club. A good mix of International big shots but also fresh local talent gets a place on our stage and maybe even in your heart!

Missy Sippy is already known in Ghent, but also far beyond, as the place for the Ghent-based blues scene. A real harbor for good music. We’ve only been around for 5 years, but more than a thousand concerts have already been given!
