Stopped by Memphis on a Monday night...admittedly not the best night for night life. It was cold and rainy, but the lights were lit and some joints were still rocking. BB King's tends to have the best paid acts, so it's a must see when on Beale Street. Memphis Jones was performing and the band was tight and polished. He... More

We went here a couple of times as a last port of call during our mid-week trip Memphis. On both occasions they had great bands on playing some good stuff and getting the punters up dancing. The bar staff were really friendly too and let us take a couple of glasses as souvenirs. Much better than its counterpart in NYC;... More

The band was excellent and we loved the smoke free atmosphere. The food was average fried bar good. However we had great Lynchburg lemonades. Definitely a fun place to spend the evening.

We came here every night . We went to all the clubs and experienced great music but bb kings exceeded the others. The live bands were superior. We danced and had heavily poured cocktails and met cool people . Yeah they were tourists like us, but who else can booze until 2am on a Tuesday . Catch Preston if you... More

My husband and I ate lunch here on our recent trip to Memphis. It was hopping even at 1 PM on a Sunday afternoon. The band was great and I discovered how much I really liked blues music. Our table was against the railing on the balcony overlooking the band and was a great place to soak in the atmosphere... More

Best house band on Beale street. The staff exudes the spirit of Memphis. You can't visit Memphis and miss out on this experience!

We couldnt see BB King, but its fantastic place. Its the favourite place of Beale street, and no neccessary to go other places. Go there and eat steak and drink beer and listen blues and make your own dance, I love BB...
