Don't miss the chance to walk down Beale St. and catch and show. Pay attention to the smaller pubs and venues, there is some very good talent here and good food. Don't go too early, shows start after 9pm. I was surprised by the presence of Memphis PD, but was told it was not unusual. Seems relatively safe, although not... More

This is a really fun place to go if you like Blues Music. BB Kings has great food and live music and it won't break the bank! Be sure you get there early enough to get a table. Try the ribs!!!

Beale Street was just Fabulous. We visited on a Wednesday night in August. In the summer this is bike night. Loads of buzz on the bikes and a ton of cool cats strutting their stuff. Of course you can still hear music everywhere,and the sight of the neon lights is a feast for the eyes. tons of fun to be... More

Felt very safe on Beale, after reading some previous reviews where others didn't. We didn't stay overnight, just made a day trip in. Will return to spend the night!

Lots of traffic. Limited parking. Music loud enough to cause hearing loss. Strong odors of mildew and mold inside restaurants. Only several blocks long.

This area is very iconic to the Jazz and Blues Americana style music. It was fun to walk the shops and taste the soul food of the area. Listening to all the street musicians was also a treat. It is a very crowded and dirty place with its very own smell during the high season though and the night culture... More

We visited Beale Street during Elvis week and Elvis music was everywhere. We had a good time touring around the street looking in the shops and bars. There is a shuttle available from teh Heartbreak Hotel at Graceland for $5.00
