Mantle. is a city club and toolbox for entrepreneurs and city dwellers.

Whatever you need to advance your passion project - your pearl, as we call it around here - come start at the City Club and contribute to a culture that is worthy of both discussion and action.

Sometimes all your tools can't be found within the four walls of our City Clubs. So, Mantle. went out into your city and made the best restaurants, bars, retailers, and workout boutiques part of your club and put them into your wallet.

Other tools include a skills and work directory for growing a pearl on Mantle. Connect. Mantle. Groups is a great place to meet others into what you are into in your city.

Live Podcast: Casey Combest

casey podcast.jpg

Steve Case - founder of AOL - just finished a bus tour through middle America he calls the "Rise of the Rest" bus tour. On his bus tour Case landed in Dallas, Memphis, Birmingham, Chattanooga, and Louisville.

Why not Jackson?

Lunches and happy hours and yards of editorial inches are had and written every month in Mississippi talking about "Brain Drain". Mississippi is the only state in the Southeast that not only doesn't have above a 2.5% growth rate, but rather has a negative population growth rate. Technology companies in Jackson and Mississippi are novelties, not the future of our State.

Why is that?

All of these questions and more are what Casey Combest, the host of the Made in Mississippi podcast, is asking as part of a new podcast on technology in Mississippi. 

Casey will be interviewing Mantle. Founder Christopher Lomax in the Living Room in a Live Podcast interview. Come grab a craft beer and participate in the pressing conversation about the future of Mississippi's economy.

Hello, Oxford | Double Decker

Mantle.  🚀 Oxford: Come Jam with Mantle. on the Oxford Square

More Launch Info Coming Soon!

The 23rd annual Double Decker Festival will be held on April 27-28, 2018. Originally inspired by the Double Decker bus that Oxford imported from England in 1994, the festival showcases Oxford as a town that supports the arts and has grown to be one of the champion events in the region.

Double Decker started with the bed of an old pickup truck serving as the stage for music, and only hosted a handful art and food vendors. Today, the event is entered around the historic Courthouse Square, and boasts a crowd of more than 60,000 people.

Now in a two-day format, Double Decker will kick-off on Friday evening with Thacker Mountain Radio hosting a live broadcast complete with music. Saturday is an all-day affair featuring nearly two hundred art and food vendors while a generous mix of both local and touring musicians take to the stage.

For more information about the lodging, directions, or general information about the festival contact Visit Oxford at 662-232-2477 or

A Cup of Sugar | The Lone Bellow

Ardenland Presents Live from Duling Hall | Doors 7pm

Get Tickets

Come join Mantle. City Club before and after The Lone Bellow takes the stage at Duling Hall.

From NPR:

If there's a secret to the warm, wide-open sound of The Lone Bellow, it lies in absolute sincerity and commitment: As playful as their live shows can be, Zach Williams, Kanene Donehey Pipkin and Brian Elmquist perform with openhearted, vein-bursting conviction. All three of the band's albums — including the new Walk Into A Storm — ably capture the group's earnest, agreeable charm, dispensed via songs that amble and soar.

Between 2015's Then Came The Morning and Walk Into A Storm, The Lone Bellow relocated from Brooklyn to Nashville — a move reflected by the presence of producer Dave Cobb, who's overseen star-making albums for the likes of Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton and Sturgill Simpson. Cobb gives Walk Into A Storm a bright, crisp, sunny sound that perfectly matches The Lone Bellow's penchant for warmly rousing, gospel-inflected Americana.

Ardenland Presents Live from Duling Hall | Doors 7pm

Get Tickets

Come join Mantle. City Club before and after Nikki Lane's stunning Nashville show live from Duling Hall.

Nikki's third album Highway Queen, out February 17th, 2017, sees the young Nashville singer emerge as one of country and rock's most gifted songwriters. Co-produced by Lane and fellow singer-songwriter, Jonathan Tyler, this emotional tour-de-force was recorded at Matt Pence's Echo Lab studio in Denton, Texas as well as at Club Roar with Collin Dupuis in Nashville, Tennessee. Blending potent lyrics, unbridled blues guitars and vintage Sixties country-pop swagger, Lane's new music will resonate as easily with Lana Del Rey and Jenny Lewis fans as those of Neil Young and Tom Petty. 

Openning Act: Ida May
