Blues Joints & Night Clubs in Memphis

Hello Yappsters,

I'm going to Memphis with some old high school buddies and was wondering if some of the Yappsters could recommend any Blues Joints or Night Clubs worth checking out. We'll be there two nights and I'd really like to go to a good Blues place on one of the nights. I look forward to some suggestions.

For blues, try

- Alfred's On Beale - 187 Beale St.
- Mr. Handy's Blues Hall - 174 Beale St

Alfred's is bigger, a bit more upscale (relatively speaking). Mr. Handy's is smaller, and is connected to the Rum Boogie Cafe.

A drummer I know played there back in January during the Women In Blues festival, she said she really enjoyed it. Probably quite a few places to choose from, I'm sure you'll find one you like. Have fun!

May I suggest you grab a quick/cheap meal at Dyer's Burgers. Used armored trucks to bring the grease they cook the burgers in over from the original. You will not be disappointed.

I went to both of these and they were definitely worth the visit. One of the guys I went with didn't even want to go to Beale St.(our main purpose of the trip was to visit Graceland) because he had been there a few years ago and he remembered it as real sleazy and not a safe place to go. I guess Memphis is trying to clean it up. We were there on a Friday and Saturday night and the police presence was very obvious. There was two police cars with officers hanging around each car on every block in the historical section of Beale Street.

Along with the clubs we found there was several locales along the stretch where there were bands playing on the sidewalks or in the alleys.

We also stopped in BB Kings and enjoyed the music there. I'd definitely go back, the music was really good and it had a great party atmosphere.

As for Graceland that was very entertaining and we all enjoyed it. I'd never been there before and apparently several years ago they added museums across the street from the Graceland mansion. The museums were well done with sections that began with the the development of rock a billy and then the connection to Elvis and his career and life. If you go I'd suggest going early to view these series of about 5 museums before your scheduled tour of the Graceland Mansion. We had about 4 hours to casually walk through these buildings before our tour of the mansion. Also do the VIP tour so that you avoid the lines. There was an Ultimate VIP and a regular VIP package. We did the regular VIP and saw everything we wanted to see and avoided all of the long lines.

Thanks again for the suggestions regarding Beale Street.
