Well all i can say is that they have great places to eat and the stores are cool too. The best time to go there is during the Cooper Young Fest.

Cooper-Young is Memphis' gentrified 21st Century miniature version of Haight-Ashbury; coffee houses with live music and open mics, good restaurants, a record store, music equipment stores and galleries. The neighborhood is walkable with sidewalks on each side of the street.

Cute part of Memphis. Easy for an afternoon stroll. Went during the festival, which was crowded, but these small businesses really have personality. The area is much livelier than downtown.

What a great little area! I felt safe here and was surrounded by artists and a crowd my age. It has the cutest shops and best restaurants, a brewery, pizza place, bookstore, crazy cat shop, a neat train trellis, and a kangaroo shuttle!

This is primarily a restaurant and bar night scene. There are a few shops, but not many. The restaurants are the primary destination, so if you are looking for something else, you are likely to be disappointed. Similarly, there is not much of historical relevance here, but it has an old timey, quaint feel to it.

Cooper-Young Historic District offers a wide range of places to eat, drink and shop. Not a lot of parking but now the Roo bus will take you from Cooper- Young to Overton square fro a small fee. This helps eliminate the parking problem and lets you visit even more places. Cooper- Young offers places to eat form Young Avenue Deli,... More
