From the site:

Across the Mississippi Bridge in West Memphis, in the parking lot of Pancho's Mexican restaurant, is the site where the Plantation Inn Nite Club once stood. While there's no marker, plaque or sign noting that fact, the impact of the club -- the music it hosted and the musicians it fostered -- can still be felt decades after its demise.

Here are three other good links about the Plantation Inn:
