Even on thanksgiving weekend this place was busy. Musicians don’t waste time but entertain u with their musical skills. Very safe place as cops barricade the whole street and there presence mskes us feel safer.

We walked around Beale Street on. Thursday afternoon and did some museum tours. The foot traffic was extremely sparse. If not for the tour bus, we would have only seen a few couples and groups of three folks. It was a light drizzle and may...More

We visited while in town to see family for Thanksgiving. The street was lively and we enjoyed ourselves walking around and stopping into restaurants. I felt very safe as there was a heavy police presence. We also took a carriage ride and saw more of...More

As a British R&B fanatic it was magic to walk the street my musical heroes had made for me. An experience of a lifetime.

There was a day in an age some 50 years ago when Beale street was the place to be, if you could even be there. The musicians and people that dominated this street and neighborhood really brought it to life. Anymore though, it’s just a...More

I've been to Beale Street several times, and I've had the same experience: It's a great party atmosphere during peak hours and everyone's having a good time, but it's very sketchy the rest of the evening. The photos and videos show the neon lights, bbq,...More

Every type of bar exists down Beale Street, all playing live music in the evening. B B Kings is the best night out, resident band had everyone dancing. BEALE St also has plenty of places to eat and numerous shops. It's great!

This was a disappointment, as we encountered lots of high-priced places to hear ear-splitting music, but little that resembled the original Blues music that Beale Street supposedl celebrates. We could not find anyplace that looked appealing, so ended up spending the evening elsewhere.

Really don't think you'll find a tribute to Elvis. Memphis is so much more than the home of Elvis Presley. It's about getting absorbed in the culture, the home of R&B, Beal Street and the clubs there, some of which are owned... More

Yes its reasonable to find either street parking or lots/garages. He minor league baseball team and NBA play on either side of Beale so there's parking all around.
