Bluesy Fun in Memphis

Memphis, TN, United States
1 Kudo
Downtown Memphis is a fantastic place to visit for food, music, shows, and general sightseeing. Although late at night is often not a very safe time to be there, there is much to do earlier in the evening. You can visit the famous ducks at the Peabody Hotel, check out the famous BB King's blues bar, take a ride in a horse drawn carriage, or see a show at the Orpheum. You can't miss trying some bbq at Rendevous or chicken at Gus's Fried Chicken (just be prepared to stand in line!). During the summer, check out the Memphis Redbirds play some baseball, or stay in the winter and watch the Memphis Grizzlies basketball team.

Bars and nightlife

B.B. King's Blues Club - Memphis
A must visit if you are new to Beale Street. Live music, cold beer, great blues.


Orpheum Theatre
Beautiful, historic theater. Try not to get seats at the very top unless you bring your binoculars!


The Peabody
Lovely old hotel. The rooms are itty bitty and the price is high, but it's a fun, historic place to stay. Try to get there in time to see the ducks take their walk!
Madison Hotel
Beautiful hotel. Try to score a great price on it by visiting in an off time. Martini bar downstairs is a fun place to start your night.


Texas de Brazil
Come hungry and with your wallet! This place is the best if you love meat.
The Majestic Grille
Fabulous brunch, great grits. Within walking distance of the Orpheum.
