The Clearpool entertainment complex was located just south of the Memphis City limits on Lamar Avenue from the 1940s to late 1960s.
Eagle´s Nest was part of the complex. It was a night club located above the restaurant and the pool´s changing room (seen in photo below) and catered to a country & wester swing dance crowd. Elvis performed 16 times at the Eagle´s Nest during 1954 along with Scotty Moore and Bill Black.
