can't beat Beale St for the music. Everyplace has high quality live music. Much more good music than Bourbon St and more of a family friendly atmosphere. Everyplace has food and good times.. Taxis are readily available at night but lots of luck finding one during the day. There are carriage rides, but we judged them to be a bit... More

There's so much to love on Beale street -- the music, the food, the people, the unusual shops. Do yourself a favor and visit at least once while you're in Memphis. Several of the bars have top notch blues bands playing daily, and there's all price ranges of food and libations available. The people are friendly and hospitable as can... More

Beale Street was cool. Music everywhere and the street performance was great. I went in May and that weekend it was Harley Davidson weekend. When they fired up the bikes it shook everything. Very cool

Went to Beale street with friends. Had a great time. Street was blocked off so there were a lot of people hanging out. I want to go back and visit. Good food. Nice people.

This street reminds me of Bourbon Street in New Orleans but a lot smaller.I came to check out Sweetie Pies Restaurant but learned that she will not be opening at all. I went in the day time,so not much going on. You can tell the strip is in the middle of renovating and working to revive the street. Maybe I... More

I have done Beale St now twice and both times were fun. The first trip I did was during the day and the bars had great food and there was a lot going on. They close the street so we just walked down it and enjoyed ourselves. This last time was the same, street closed and we saw some young... More

We will always keep going to Memphis! We love Beale street! Drinks can be good or bad, you have to pick and choose, but the music is always outstanding! Twice we have been over to a small little park that always has someone playing on a stage. There is no fee and it is across from a really good daiquiri... More

Last time visited ten years ago there were awesome crowd. Now it's poor. Learned that their lack of the budgets caused many shut down stores as Peabody Mall and around area.

This historic street is a fun place to people watch, see live music, and get authentic soul food. The street performers are limited to kids doing backflips and the homeless people are usually a couple of blocks away. During the summer, bike night is very impressive and fun.

There is a lot of excitement going on in this street. I liked the music, the street performers and brightness of it. Just wasn't my type of place. I'm sure if I was 20 years younger I would have enjoyed it. Seemed Beale Street was for young people cruising bars or older middle aged tourists who don't get out much.... More
