Description: 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.

“Nothing spectacular, but spectacular service”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Pretty minimal beer selection. Definitely a liquor bar. Our bartender was very nice, and there was a music festival going on at the time, so the live music was awesome. More than I would want to pay for drinks, but its in a touristy area where drinks would naturally cost a bit more.

“Excellent”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Must go to! It is part of the night life in Memphis...you can't go to Beale street and not at least have a beer here.

“Good food, good music”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This Monday night appeared to be slow for them, however, our waiter was on it. Food was timely and good and the house band was enjoyable. Had a good time. Wish my town had one.

“Great music”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We were in Memphis and asked the waiter at the restaurant where some good music was. He said BB King's had music but, if we wanted to get away from the tourists, we should go to Rum Boogie's. He as absolutely right. Service was rapid and very friendly. Drinks were well priced. The music was absolutely outstanding. Reading the names on the hundreds of guitars was a history lesson. I highly recommend anyone visit this place, have a couple of cold ones, and totally enjoy the music.

“BLUES BLUES BLUES!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

If you like live music, this is the bar for you. Their house band is the best on all of Beale Street. If you go for drinks, grab some BBQ nacho also!
