Part One: The Double Door Inn The Double Door Inn is a non-descript little club that used to be a hat shop in a former life, but it has become what many folks say is the longest running blues club in America. Musical icons such as Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn and many others have played there and the club has had one owner in its history and the same bartender for over 34 years. We'll take a closer look at the history of the Double Door Inn.
