Some of the world's best talent plays daily on Beale Street. They are probably over worked and definitely under paid but fans get the benefit. It's an up close and personal experience like you get nowhere else. Live music every day of the week, excellent food and awesome service plus meeting people from around the world. I love Beale Street.... More

Went to Beale Street to do some shopping and to eat at Dyer's Burgers. Awesome. Not my first trip to Beale but it's always interesting. Not a lot of foot traffic on a Thursday evening but we were able to get in and out of stores easily. Highly recommend a trip to Beale Street if you are in Memphis. Great... More

We visited this street during the day and realised that to see the best of it it has to be visited in the evening when all the clubs and pubs come to life. However we still enjoyed the sights and sounds of the pubs and found the street to be very clean and the people very friendly and helpful.

Beale street is the entertainment strip. Many Bars and Restaurants to choose from. Great music at most including Live Acts. Recommended BB Kings Blues Bar for a drink.

Nothing like I Imaged beale Street to be, lots of drinking and people being foolish but you get that everywhere now, if you like drinking and partying it will be great for you. If you want a drink and still hear some of the music some of the bars have patio areas upstairs which is quite enough to talk but... More

As others have said you must bring photographic id to prove your age as it's tennesse law....... I was refused service despite the grey in the beard and a 61 year old I spoke... More
