B.B. King's Blues Club

B.B. King's Blues Club as the name would suggest is owned by legendary blues musician B.B. King and features some of the best blues music in Memphis. From the regular appearances of Ruby Wilson - who can belt out a tune and entertain a crowd as well as anyone - to the special concerts by groups such as Booker T, this club consistently delights visitors and locals alike. There is a menu of ribs, barbecue and other entrees, as well as snack items, but most people come here for the music, not the food. The dance floor rocks every night of the week. Reservations are required for special concerts.

Rum Boogie Café

This bar has wrap-around windows that let you see the dancers bopping and jiving from the outside, or watch the street scene on Beale from the inside. Autographed guitars hang from the ceiling, offering proof that musicians such as Carl Perkins, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Walsh and others have hung out here. The house act, James Govan and the Boogie Blues Band, performs at Rum Boogie Café when there isn't a visiting artist. The kitchen serves several dinner and snack items, but the Rum Boogie is famous for its red beans and rice.

Earnestine and Hazel's

This hot spot used to be a pharmacy, was also rumored to be a brothel upstairs. Now Earnestine and Hazel's is leading the revival of the South Main area. Music and the jukebox (rumored to be driven by ghosts) at the bar bring in the late-night crowds and the famous soul burgers keep them satiated as they listen. Weekend nights feature a piano bar upstairs early in the evening, R&B or jazz later and, often, late night jam sessions with local musicians. The clientèle changes as the evening goes on, with the action really starting around midnight. On Sunday afternoons, there is live music from a variety of local groups. Ghost tours of the haunted rooms upstairs draw curious thrill seekers.

Folk's Folly Prime Steak House

This locally owned steakhouse offers some of the best prime rib and seafood in Memphis and also features a large selection of fine wines. Top a steak with smothered onions or blue cheese, or select from a variety of vegetables including fresh asparagus and sauteed spinach. Appetizers include fried dill pickles, mushrooms stuffed with lump crab meat and several other choices. As for dessert, the Famous Folk's Folly Freeze is a good choice and comes served with your favorite liqueur. The atmosphere at Folk's Folly is simple and comfortable. A pianist plays Monday through Saturday in the cocktail lounge adjacent to the dining room. Rooms are available for private parties and can comfortably accommodate 70.

Huey's Midtown

The burgers are definitely big and juicy, but many customers are drawn by the deep fried onion rings and mushrooms, the live music on Sunday afternoons, and the late evening hours. If you are looking for something besides burgers, try the tamales with chili, cheddar cheese, and onion, the chicken or steak on a stick, or the fried mushrooms. There is a full bar, where beer is a specialty.The atmosphere is casual, with a couple of gimmicks. Customers are encouraged to write graffiti on the walls (and to read it, of course), and to shoot toothpicks through straws so they stick in the ceiling. Lunchtime draws area office workers.

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.
