    Go up the spiral staircase. I think purely in terms of layout, atmosphere and amenities, this could be the best bar I've ever been to. Games, view, couch, tv's, bar, live music, balcony, soul.

    On a Sunday evening they host a jam where individual musicians are called on stage for a couple of songs set. Typically they have never played together making each performance unique. V cool.

    Great place to start off your night at Beale St. Tremendous food while listening to live blues music. Try out their fried pickles and pulled pork.

    Great place on Beale. Live music, good view of the street, dollar bills all over the walls and cool signed guitars hanging over the bar.

    Lotsa people come here just for the blues music but it's one of the best deals on Beale for inexpensive food too ...gotta love it!

    The waiter that served us was entertainment by himself! The house band has been playing here for 17 years and they're great: well worth a visit.

    OMG they are supposed to be known for bbq pork but I'm just praying with every bite that I don't choke! So incredibly DRY! And has loads of bones in it. So disappointed but good place to ppl watch!

    Considered a must visit on Beale street when in Memphis. The place has a $3 cover charge but the music is great. Drinks are okay.

    Catch live musicians nightly at Rum Boogie. Grab a seat by the window so you can people watch on Beale while enjoying fantastic tunes.

    Come on the weekends to see the James Govan Band. Talk to the keyboardist, D.C., and ask him "Time is tight, right?"
