We used to love to come to Beale, not for the party but for the atmosphere and music. We would come at least 1 time a month. Sunday afternoons there were my favorite. Sidewalk musicians, cheap beer, sidewalk vendors; yep I loved it. Now I wouldn't be caught down there! It has become a scary place full of people with... More

Reading tripadvisor about Beale Street, I had some concerns about beggars. I must say we were not bothered at all by anyone and felt totally safe wandering this historic street. And there was fabulous music in all the bars.

If you love the blues or want a bit of blues history you will like this street, also the BBQ is delicious but not a fan of this area. Dirty, shabby, huge police presence. Street is closed off for easy walking and carrying drinks. Heard some good music coming from the bars but not my thing.

If you go to Memphis you have to go by Beale Street. Lots of good blues music. You may hear it's a high crime area, but if you're there before 9 PM should be okay.
