The Blues Hall was our favorite club during a recent visit to Memphis. It has just the right amount of grit (it's not too cute or slick), the acoustics are fine, and the drinks are reasonably priced. Of course, the band playing has to be...More

Beale Street is famous for its music and food. The Juke Joint doesn’t disappoint with stiff drinks, a lively atmosphere, and home grown blues music. Lots of locals were stopping in tell you this isn’t a tourist haven.

I had no plan to visit this place at all, yet I was allured in by fantastic atmosphere. Place has a very good vibe and very good value for money (beer). I loved it.
