PM until One AM
This is the original bar at Crossroads
and has been here fifteen years. Ollie Mae's, a part of the history of
Gay America, has received national attention and been featured in magazines
and books. We even got a mention on MTV's The Real World when one of the
participants said something about "the gay bar in Mississippi with a goat".
It's maintained mostly in it's original condition. Which means that there
are names written all over the walls and ceiling and you are encouraged
to leave your mark too. Resembling an old roadhouse bar the atmosphere
is laid back with years of collected memorabilia on shelves and hung from
the walls. The floors are rough concrete with a pool table in the middle
and an old juke box in the corner. If you want to make a journey into the
past of Gay Mississippi then you have to visit Ollie Mae's and leave a
little piece of yourself for the future. Ollie Mae's alone is worth the
trip to Crossroads.
