Flying Saucer Memphis

The food here is designed to complement the beer. Appetizers include the beer cheese soup, hot tamales, sausage quesadillas, and sausage and cheese plates. Sandwiches make up most of the main dishes. One of the rooms contains a large bar and wooden tables and chairs, and the other room has pool tables and a sports bar atmosphere. The most popular place to eat and drink is on the wrap-around patio at the windows. Cigar smoking is encouraged on the patio, and the restaurant offers a cigar list. The restaurant features live music on weekends and is in the heart of the tourist district, so there are usually plenty of chances for people-watching.

Silly Goose Lounge

A welcoming addition to the bar scene of downtown, the Silly Goose Lounge offers a place for thirsty travelers, or rather, thirsty commuters, to just sit back, relax, and enjoy a well-made drink or two. Located just near the waterfront, this lounge serves cocktails, an elegant selection of wine, and scotch, which is perfect to wash down their delectable sliders, flatbreads, or pasta. The lounge also plays host to DJs and even poker tournaments.

King's Palace Cafe's Absinthe Room

King's Palace Cafe's Absinthe Room has the advantage of being located on Memphis' busy Beale Street, but removed from much of the commotion outside by being located on the second floor. A sign will guide you up the stairs where you'll find pool games going on in three different rooms and people lounging on couches enjoying drinks.

Hi-Tone has a cool bar which serves a decent variety of drinks, especially some cheap beer. It's definitely the local favorite for live music, with lesser known bands as well as big names like Elvis Costello and Duncan Sheik having performed here. Check the website for performance schedules and specials on wings and drinks.

Wild Bill's

If you want to venture away from the usual tourist spots in Memphis to hear some live music, Wild Bill's is a great option. While it's a bit out of the way, the lively atmosphere, cheap drinks, and unbelievable talent will make you glad you made the trek. When the music starts playing, people are get up and start dancing. So don't be shy, and join in!

The Blue Monkey

This bar with an interesting name is in a great location for a night out - a block west of Overton Square and close to many restaurants. You can stop in for a beer and listen to live music after an evening at the theater or a dinner out. The Blue Monkey offers 35 different brands of beer and several wines. You can snack on one of their sandwiches and have the time of your life.

Alchemy Memphis

Alchemy Memphis lives up to its name by crafting amazing cocktails. Sip on a Hound Dog, made with bourbon, peach, ginger, lemon, and mint, or opt for a Gincident, made with gin, vanilla, lemon juice, and mango. The atmosphere is trendy, featuring a sleek decor. The food here is worth the visit in itself. Dishes like the beef sliders and roasted asparagus with Parmesan are made for sharing, while larger plates like the seared diver scallops and espresso-rubbed pork chop make for a filling meal for one.
