    Don't expect local microbrews or a lengthy vegetarian and gluten-free menu. Enjoy a cold brew, listen to the music, and chat with the bartender for stories.

    Solid dive bar, with history dripping from the walls. Liquor is only served Wed - Sat in the bar upstairs, and beer selection is basic, but it works. Get in here.

    I'm 15 and coming to a dive bar like this doesn't make me regret it. There's a sort of serenity in sitting and enjoying the decaying, historical, vintage brothel.

    The coolest bar I've ever been to. I love that it's a little dive but has so much history. And the burgers are awesome too.

    Dive AF! id est, really quite enjoyable. Beers cost a bit more than at home - but cheaper than Beale St. Also, jukebox has so many great tunes!

    The soul burger is a don't-miss, and bring plenty of $1 bills for the jukebox. And if the bartender has time, ask them to tell you about the ghosts that haunt the Downtown joint.

    The soul burger is a smoky, inseparable mess of beef, cheese, grilled onions, pickles and mustard Read more

    THE classic dive bar for downtown Memphis. Check out the haunted upstairs, too, if you dare.

    Actually, if you ask Nate about ghosts, I am pretty sure he will tell you he doesn't believe in them but do ask him about the history of the place. He knows all about it.

    Your average dive bar, that’s not your average dive bar. The soul burger, night scene, jukebox, and history of the place make the environment and its raving reviews.

    This has got to be the only bar in Memphis where you can have your beer in a bathtub. Head upstairs and get in.

    Ultra dive. Stick to Bud Light & play the jukebox. Conveniently located right next door to Amtrak station.

    Do not use the restroom here. Especially the restroom on the 2nd floor. There's at least 2 ghosts up there.
