Jerry Lee Lewis' Cafe & Honky Tonk


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2016 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Jerry Lee Lewis’ Cafe & Honky Tonk is located on World Famous Beale Street in the heart of downtown Memphis. It's walking distance from the Fedex Forum, making it the prime location to stop and eat before the big game or concert. We open early and stay open late, catering to both party animals and night owls alike.

I think it would be fine but the noise might be a bit too much for one that young. Maybe check out all the areas and pick the one that works best for you. Hope that helps.
