Dub Rogers | Mapping a Modern MS

Friday, July 8, 2016

Dub Rogers is a timeless character, an explorer who would be just as much at home in ancient Rome or Victorian England as he is in modern-day Natchez, where he owns two visionary cultural establishments: Steampunk Coffee Roasters - an altar to inspiring espresso, and Smoot’s Grocery - a music venue that provides a necessary haven for music from Mississippi and beyond.

“My fantasy was to go back to Natchez and find a small dilapidated building and to restore it and hang my shingle and to be the kind of shopkeeper you’d find in your travels in a little hidden away place.” - Dub

This interview is part of the Museum’s Mapping a Modern Mississippi Initiative.
