They call it a juke joint but after visiting Clarksdales juke joints I'd call it just a good little bar with great music acts. We visited here every night for the 3 nights we were here and each night they had some some great local bands on; I can't remember the name the lady fronted band but I do remember... More

This place was jumping on a Wednesday night! The band was very good and the crowd was really into the music. Everyone in the place was smiling and rocking and singing along. It was a great time enjoyed by all.

Just wandering around Beale St and liked the looks and sound of this little joint. Went in and stayed for a couple of hours. Great fun, good band, not too loud(we're old, want to protect what little hearing we have left). Much younger crowd, than us, but we noticed they were all staying and listening. Good night spot.

We stopped in because we heard some great music coming from inside. Dr. Feelgood was fabulous! Cool atmosphere. Small and intimate. Loved that they had ice cold Shiner Bock!

We stumbled upon this place while walking up Beale STreet. It's very tiny but the music and atmosphere were 'legit'. The band that was playing was fantastic and really got the crowd going.

The most authentic blues music of our annual visit, the band was fantastic, Queen was the lady singing with the band and she could belt out anything she wanted, it is really small, I'm sure different nights are much different based on band and crowd but the night we were there the crowd was a dancing and singing machine and...

We liked the location--right on Beale Street. It offered great people watching. However, the drinks were served in plastic cups-- even the wine. The music was good, if a little too loud. We are used to clubs in New Orleans, and this place was like a mid-level N.O. place.

We walked into this place because it looked like a good blues joint. The atmosphere is just a little across the line towards a dive bar, which makes it feel “real,” and the band was tight. The singer went around with a tip bucket, to which I contributed. The singer told us not to leave until we’ve heard him sing... More

I wasn't exactly visiting Beale Street for drinking purposes, but rather wanted to encounter the true Blues experience. Several places offered this, but to me one in particular stood out...the Blues Hall Juke Joint. The atmosphere was exactly as you'd expect for a Blues joint in Memphis. The staff was friendly and patrons were having a fantastic time. The band... More

There was a 5$ cover charge but that includes the Rum Boogie cafe. The live band were good. Bar service was quick and the choice of beers good. My problem was that as a non-food bar smoking is allowed - after several smoke-free years in bars at home and elsewhere I found this to be a problem.
