If you are in Memphis and you don't visit here then you have wasted your trip there! An amazing pub, great food and very reasonably priced drinks.

Seamus is a model landlord, making everyone feel so very welcome.

As well as great food and drink, it is also the home of the Memphis Arsenal Supporters (the Memphis Gooners). The welcome and atmosphere was so friendly, I donated one of my Arsenal shirts which now hangs on the wall!

You will have a brilliant time at the Brass Door

Memphis early evening in winter can seem pretty odd, (a few menacing drunks about threatening knives on people) but we walked past this place, peered through the windows and went in on the basis that they looked normal enough!!!!!!!!!! Host Seamus made us feel totally welcome and the atmosphere was brilliant. Good bad food and we even got a lift over to some other recommended bars back near our hotel near midtown. Brilliant service,

Totally new menu - not at all like normal bar food ! A must try !
Upstairs for a private intimate dinner or downstairs for a more open time!
In the basement for social, business etc..

We went there for food and it was great. We had the burger and the Irish breakfast and we both enjoyed them. The staff were cool and very friendly and the bar looked like a great place to party at. If I ever get back to Memphis.....
