Good food, great music, and such an amazing vibe! If you're in Memphis, there's no better place than Beale street! Best stores, gift shops and bars are in this street. I loved the live band, playing and singing good ol' jazz and blues, everyone dancing in the street like no one was watching. I also enjoyed the street art, and... More

This is a must do experience in Memphis. Lots of bars and restaurants all with great music, much of it live. It was bike night when we went. The bikes were amazing and owners happy to chat about their very individual machines. What an atmosphere!

My review is for Beale Street during daylight. We had teenaged girls in our party, so we were not there after dark. The little shops were kind of interesting. We ate at BB King's and it was good and appropriate for kids during the day. The music being played at the different places was a nice effect. Overall, it is... More

We love Memphis. The people are friendly. The music is fantastic. And there is always free entertainment such as the Beale Street Flippers. Now those are some talented young men. There are dozens of bars and restaurants with just about any type of food. Be sure to stop at Miss Poly's Soul food for some chicken and waffles

If you like moterbikes especially Harleys they have a bike night on a Wednesday night from 6pm. They shut off the top part of Beale Street and then the bikes start pouring in all sorts of makes. It is a very good atmosphere would recommend.

So much history on and around Beale St that it is a must visit for those who love history or music. This is where it all began before Sun Studio. There are numerous places to eat on Beale and a large variety of bars and historic landmarks within walking distance from Beale St.

On my vacation with my husband we knew we had to visit Beale Street and we did a few times. There are so many awesome stores to visit and bars to drink at its tough to see it all in one evening. My favorites are A. Swabs and Tater Reds. For food and drinks Silky O Sullivan's was fantastic there... More

If you visit memphis you really should go down to Beale Street and experience the atmosphere. There is plenty to do and see and it's a safe environment. There are bars and restaurants everywhere and just go to TA to get the best recommendations. You should also include some time to sit in one of the bars and listen to... More

Beale Street is fun for all ages. We were a herd of 8 total with 4 kids ages 3 - 12 and had fun. Put on your walking shoes because this is another walk around and see the place sort of place. We did have a problem with bums. My husband must be a magnet for them. He was approached... More
