We visited both times and honestly I enjoyed the daytime more! There were street performers asking for tips, but we didn't have cash and they eventually left us alone. Have your ID- strongly enforced. Be aware that the lovely patios do not allow outside drinks...More

Even if you are going out for a big night on the town this was still fun to go down and take in the music and atmosphere. Just bring cash as a number of places are cash only.

Beale St. Is great if you love good food and music. It can get very busy in May. Ate supper at the Blues City Cafe and would highly recommend it.

Beale Street is one of the legendary American streets - there only a few streets which command a visit and Beale is one of them. Beale is unique enough to not be over run by the mega chain tourist traps and, hopefully, it will remain...More
