  • Great place to walk and enjoy the sights. Plenty to do and great places to eat. Good bar selection...they even have a Coyote Ugly!!!
  • Beale Street is an iconic street that is said to have "birthed the blues". During the day Beale Street is a lively mix of museums, galleries, restaurants, and shopping. At night the focus is on the music. There are many clubs and restaurants that focus on both live and DJ based music. The restaurants stay open late serving good bbq and other Memphis based dishes.
  • Fantastic atmosphere! Fantastic music! Got to get rid of the bums wanting a drink of your beer though.
  • We went to Memphis trying to follow in the foot steps of Marc cohns walking in Memphis song. I didn't know what to expect of Beale St. Man what a joy this is was. The people, the sounds, the protesting Christians, I loved every minute of it.
  • One of the highlights of Memphis of which there are few. A dizzying array of neon, restaurants, pubs, and venues dedicated to the blues and the birth of rock-n-roll. If you are a fan of music, you have to go. If you are in Memphis, you have to go. Just go already! Check out the revamped Main St area too while you are there.
