Jittery Joe's Coffee was started in 1994 next to the famous 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia. The connection with the club helped Jittery Joe's become something larger than anyone would have imagined. Jittery Joe's remained busy all through the day and night. Joe's clientele included everyone from the Mayor, teachers, and construction workers coming in during the morning, to students, townies, and artists coming in at night. The Jittery Joe's buzz was helped with frequent celebrity guests such as Michael Stipe of R.E.M., the B-52s, comedians Penn and Teller, and many others. At one time Jittery Joe's was the official coffee of Antarctica. According to Rolling Stone Magazine the #5 underground album of all time is "Live at Jittery Joe's ." Rolling Stone Magazine also named Jittery Joe's one of the top 24 hour coffee houses in America.
