Very cool bar. We sat in the window early evening and watched the wonderous parade of people going up and down Beale Street. Lots of atmosphere and the guitars of famous musicians hanging from the ceiling. Good selection of food too.

Food was "Ok" but our service was bad. Our server forgot several of our food items. Gave one of our meals to another table, gave us a hard time when we asked for separate checks. Catfish was not great, but the burgers were not bad.

We just walked in by chance, because we have been looking for some live music and some drinks. Even though it was a Friday night and already about 10pm, we got a table with a really goof view to the stage. The admission fee was...More

Memphis was really hopping with the ribs festival during the time we were there. We were happy to find a couple of bar stools and listen to the live band, Mambo Jambo.

We attended two evenings performances. Every band, every band member, were fabulous blues musicians. They had a light cover charge, but we are able to attend without a drink minimum, which was good for me as I don't drink.

Came here several times during our long weekend in Memphis and really enjoyed the music. Our favorite was on Sunday night from 7pm to 11pm, it was open jam sessions. So musicians would show up, sign in on a piece of paper and they would...More

Yes, starting around 8pm every night there is a cover. They have live music 365 days a year. Cover can vary on weekends depending if there is a national touring act.

Of all the clubs and bars on Beale Street, Rum Boogie Cafe is the one not to miss. If their superfine rum selection and beer aren't enough to entice you, the Cajun and barbecue menu should-ribs, fried catfish, gumbo and red beans and rice served by fast and friendly servers. Live Music 7 days a week 365 days a year!
