Great relaxed small venue for live blues

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

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.
