I wandered along Beale Street in the hope that music would draw me inside to one of the many places scattered along Beale Street. The place drew me in like a moth to a flame. If you want authentic blues there is no better place than this joint in Memphis. A must see for lovers of the blues.

This juke joint is just amazing. Not like anything else on Beale. Vince Johnson and the Plantation Allstars were on while we were there this time. Blew my mind!!!! These guys are crazy good and Vince is the most talented blues/harmonica performer on Beale. We will keep coming back for this awesome band!

Wandered in off the street because I liked what I heard, and decided to stay..for not one, but three bands, and dinner! I would be perfectly fine spending every night of my Memphis vacation here, it's that good. Wonderful decor, nice waitstaff, friendly vibe, local beer, decent food....but the music is really what makes it. Went on a Saturday night... More

I was in Memphis for one night en route to a wedding in Nashville and wanted to be sure to catch some of the blues scene, but as a solo traveler, I was a little nervous that it might be too crowded or rowdy. I chose this place based on reviews here and was glad I did. I hung out... More

We went here more than once and danced like animals. It's small but that does not matter. Everyone is friendly and the bands were great! If you're on Beale I can guarantee you will end up in there at some point anyway.

I agree this was the best venue for listening to good blues on Beale Streeet. Reasonable cover and great band. Only complaint was the smoke..

Located on famous Beale Street they had some amazing live blues music! Small intimate location with full bar. It's right next to Rum Boogie and there is a door between them ... so you can go back and forth and experience at least two bands for one cover!

Listened to the music from outside. Dr Feelgood was playing and we decided that we could have a drink here and listen to the music. There is no cover charge and they also sell non-alcoholic drinks for the driver. This was Delta Blues music and great to hear the harmonica. Worth your time

We were walking down Beale St (Blues Hall Juke Joint is in the middle of things on Beale St.) and liked the music coming out. So we went in. It was a Monday night and one of the regular bands was playing: Dr Feelgood Potts Band. Mississippi Delta Blues is their music. And we instantly liked the music and Dr.... More

Best Delta Blues Harmonica Blower ever! Dr Feelgood has been in recording and music here since 1967. EVERY time Im in Memphis I have to come hear this sweet sound. Blues Hall is across the street and down half a block from BB KIngs I personally walk right past BB's to come here. Best on Beale. The Bar staff are... More
