Gus Stevens - Biloxi

Gus Stevens Seafood Restaurant & Buccaneer Lounge was a restaurant and supper club on US Highway 90 in Biloxi, Mississippi. Gus Stevens, the Greek-American owner, came to the Gulf Coast in 1946.

The restaurant building was constructed with a Moroccan architecture style turret.

It was famous in the 1950s and 1960s and hosted many famous entertainers, including Andy Griffith, Mel Torme, Rudy Vallee, and Jerry Lee Lewis. It is also well known as the last place where Jayne Mansfield performed; she died early the next morning in a car crash while being driven from the club.

The establishment closed in 1975 and the building was empty until 1977 when it was rented and revamped for an El Palacio Mexican Restaurant. That closed in 1985 and the building was empty until 2000, when it was demolished and the location slated to become a Surf Style store.

Gus Stevens in the 1970's

Mississippi Retro Apparel are wearable flashbacks from years gone by.

They are for the crowd that knew the bars, clubs, restaurants and music of the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. They are reminders of the best of times spent with family and friends at the best places, those places, back then.
