I've never seen so many signs saying NO FIREARMS! I will not be taking my wife to anywhere on Beale Street. It's expensive, corny, fake blues. I'm sure The Peabody wishes it wasn't so close by! Save your money and buy an extra velvet Elvis somewhere else!

Visited Memphis early January and Beale St was very quiet. Went during the day when there had been a light dusting of snow during the night and everywhere was closed. Spent 2 evenings in the Blues cafe that was great.

I'm a musician, so kind of picky. But both times we've tried Beale it's been 3 sloppies for every yummy. No longer the Original great experience.

Went to Rum Boogie and BB Kings, awesome awesome! Weird thing was that they closed at midnight on a Wednesday? Probably a good thing cause we had an early flight home in the morning!

Just not my scene. Lots of police presence out at night. Drunks. Didn't find any good live music the night we went. Tourist area

You will have a great time on Beale Street, didn't find one bar or eatery that disappointed. Can recommend BB Kings for music and great food.
