Grant's Lounge at 576 Poplar St., Macon, Ga. Opened in 1971, Grant's was one of the first black-owned nightclubs in Macon and one of the few places in town where blacks and whites mixed socially at the time. Because of the club's association with nearby Capricorn Records, many famous Southern Rock acts played here in the early 1970s, and hundreds of musicians flocked to Grant's from around the country hoping to get discovered. More than 40 years later, Grant's is still open for business. May 25, 2009.
