Named for Thacker Mountain which is the highest point of elevation in Lafayette County at 564 feet, Thacker 564, has a comfortable, friendly vibe to it. Trey and Michelle have been friends since college and bonded over a love of music and food. Restaurant goers will notice the names of food items have song lyrics in them or are music based. “Our sandwiches on the menu are slider size and you order a la carte. We named them after local people and things, our family, and local ‘hot spots,’” says Michelle. “Our specialty cocktails have ‘tongue in cheek names too.’”
The décor throughout is another nod to their family that supports their businesses. “All the artwork that we installed was done by Trey’s talented wife, Sarah Kathryn, that owns Studio Whimzy,” says Michelle. Michelle’s mom helped cover the booths and the tin on the front of the bar came from Trey’s family's farm. “We wanted people of all ages and types to feel comfortable whether sitting on the covered patio listening to music with friends or families with their children to Ole Miss students wanting to come hang out and have happy hour on their way to the square,” smiles Michelle.
