Best Live Music on Beale, Nice Bartenders

We walked up and down Beale Street and this place was the only one that gave us really good vibes. We ended up spending our entire night here, and probably had one too many beers.

This is a terrific place to listen to blues. Be careful to enter the right establishment --- there are several with similar names on Beale. We went there our first night in Memphis and heard the Blues Masters of Memphis. Fantastic. there are about 5 tables and about 15 seats at the bar, so you might have to stand. The... More

Seen Dr. Feelgood Potts here several times. Hands down the best blues joint on Beale St. Real down South blues with casual setting and no pretenses. If you enjoy the Blues and want feel it rather just listen to it: this is the place.

I stopped here to catch a set of some fine Delta blues. Its a divey kind of place, and it is as commercial as Beal street gets being in the middle of it all, but the bar maid was very pleasant and mixed a decent drink and the music was terrific. No cover, but the drink prices made up for... More

We went here on our first night in Memphis and had an unbelievable time. We saw a great group called the Plantation All stars, the singer was an exceptional harmonica player too and Danny on the guitar was great. In fact the whole band were something you could only hope to hear. The bar service was very good and drinks... More

We stopped in here as it was the most authentic and least touristy looking place we could find on Beale St. The blues music was great and the 'Big A** Beers' (PBR) were excellent value. If you want blues on Beale, go here.

Our first night on Beale we were not super excited to go back, very much like a small Bourbon Street but a must do so we did it. Our second night was much better since we found the Blues Hall Juke Joint! We had originally gone in to quench our thirst for a moment and ended up staying over 3... More

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
