Savannah, GA Rocks at The Jinx

August 4th, 2012 by kolinpodell

Whats on at the Jinx Bar, Savannah GAThe Jinx club and bar, a.k.a. “the CBGB of the South”, is Savannah’s premier spot for crowd’s of all ages to rock to local and traveling bands. If you’re looking for awesome drinks from local long time bartenders that make you feel like you’re just enjoying a fun time in their basement, we at Azalea Inn and Gardens head to The Jinx. There is something going on every night of the week in the funky skulls and darkness atmosphere. Karaoke, Rock and Roll Bingo nights, live concerts, and Hip Hop Hop night are just a few of the weekly events that draw in the wide array of clientele.

The recent filming of the 2013 movie, “CBGB”, happened mostly at The Jinx and surrounding buildings. Top actors such as Rupert Grint and Justin Bartha had a great time there calling out bingo numbers or simply enjoying the relaxed atmosphere after a day of filming. The location manager for “CBGB”, Charley Baxter, even planned on having the wrap party for the movie at The Jinx.

The owner, Susanne Guest Warnekros, got her inspiration for The Jinx directly from CBGB. She is proud to host traveling bands in the area. Her staff goes a long way to welcome weary bandmates, housing them on couches and providing home cooked meals. The Jinx was also home to many bands during the latest Savannah Stopover Festival. The whole feeling of The Jinx is a real down home place to rock, drink, meet locals, and have an all-out great time.

Fireworks in Savannah Georgia

It’s hard to get excited about any holiday that falls on a Wednesday, but we take our celebrations seriously in the South and Savannah’s July 4, 2012 Fireworks Extravaganza will be no exception. Everyone knows that Savannah is the only place to be for St. Patrick’s Day – after all, we did hold the largest parade with the largest attendence in the WORLD just a few weeks ago – but we take all opportunities that come our way to have some fun. Did you know there are over 200 festivals throughout the year in Savannah – no kidding! We love our food, our beer, our wine, our art, our culture, our city – heck, we love it all – but most of all we love sharing! So join us on July 4, even if it is a Wednesday, and plan on spending the night – getting up for work the next day is much easier if you didn’t spend it in jail cause you had a wee bit too much fun – or better, take the next day off, meander our streets and enjoy this world-class destination.

Exploring Savannah’s Black Heritage

December 15th, 2011 by Teresa Jacobson

Black History Vacation at Azalea Inn & Gardens

First African Baptist Church - 1st black congregation in Georgia

Savannah’s Black Heritage is not the most touted tour in our beautiful city and perhaps that is because people tend to step lightly when discussing slavery even after all these years. This subtle attitude however belies the magnificence of the contribution that Savannah’s blacks have given to the fabric of our city. Four inns of Savannah have decided to collaboratively create a package that will highlight some of the best but lesser known historical sites of our city’s black history, culture and heritage.

Stay at Azalea Inn and Gardens for the Jazz Festival

Jazz and Blues, Forsyth Park Savannah

We are often asked, “What’s there to do in Savannah?” and with a quiet smile we share, and share and share.   The quality and quantity of everyday adventures in Savannah is legend.  Our history and architecture alone justifies a 3-day submersion into culture and food and art.  If this is not enough, or you have been Savannah-friendly for a while now, we will help you find more to love about our city by honing in on some of your other interests and building an itinerary fit for you.
