Below you will find an alphabetical listing and description of all of the street's bars, restaurants, and clubs so that you can make the most of your next trip to Beale Street.

With big-screen televisions and a vast selection of draft beers, this is a true tap room. On the weekends, catch a live blues act and throw back a cold one.

The Black Diamond

Dyer's Burgers
205 Beale St.
No matter which Dyer's location you visit, you can get one of their famous burgers fried in almost 100 year old grease. Since their opening in 1912, Dyer's has not changed out the grease in their fryers. They have added to it and transported it it, but have never changed it completely!

Hard Rock Cafe
315 Beale St.
The Memphis location of the world-famous Hard Rock Cafe serves up great food and music as well as a merchandise store full of Hard Rock souvenirs. In addition, music lovers will enjoy the music memorabilia filling the walls of the cafe.

King's Palace Cafe

People's is Beale Street's only pool hall and sports bar. It features big screen TV's and of course, pool tables.

The Pig is all about Memphis-style barbecue. Whether you want BBQ sandwiches, ribs, or smoked turkey, you can get it at The Pig along with great blues music all weekend long.

Rum Boogie Cafe
182 Beale St.
The Rum Boogie Cafe is one of the most happening spots on Beale. There is always a great band and a vibrant crowd. For the best rum drinks on Beale Street and perhaps in Memphis, this is definitely the place to go.

The Shake Shack
154 Beale St.

Silky O'Sullivan's

Superior Bar

159 Beale used to be the Police Museum. Now its the Superior Bar. This is a great place to indulge in a little karaoke, feast on delicious Creole cooking, and take in some historic Memphis memorabilia.

Wet Willie's
209 Beale St.
Sure, you may have had a strawberry daiquiri before, but what about a Monster Melon or a Chocolate Thunder? At Wet Willie's, you can get those flavors and many many more. What really makes Wet Willie's famous, though, is the potency of their drinks -- you get a lot of bang for your buck.
