    Nashville Nightlife

    Tony and I went to Bailey's Pub and Grille to celebrate my 49th Birthday tonight after work. It was our first time there and it was very nice. The interior is very nice and very roomy, with dark paneling and woodwork. I love the decor inside this restaurant. Half of the restaurant is smoker friendly and the rest is without smoking area and it is a...

  • Beale Street

    Memphis Nightlife

    Fun bands playing live in the street, and occasional acrobats performing tricks. A lot of good restaurants and bars. You can bring open drinks outside, so long as they're in a plastic cup. Perfectly safe; no traffic and plenty of police. Wear absolutely whatever you want. But do wear something.

    We went in to the STAGE...and it is one of the larger places on Broadway but they only had one bartender and no waitresses...so it was hard to get a drink. we stood at the bar for about 10 minutes and still not noticed so we went somewhere still packed but NOT understaffed.. somewhere just as dirty, divey and wanted our money... or at least our...

  • Dancing/karaoke

    Nashville Nightlife

    Three stories of fun! Eat dinner, learn a new dance, listen to live music, play some pool on the 3rd floor, and pick up souveniers on your way out the door at the gift shop. Bring the kids too - there is no age limit as long as they're accompanied by an adult. Because of the kids, things stay fairly g-rated here. Yes, they do serve alcohol. Yes,...

    Tony and I was enjoying Beale Street in Memphis, TN on Saturday Night January 12, 2013 and we were doing the Old Fashion Bar Hopping..Dunking into various bars along the strip grabbing a drink here and there and enjoying the music. We hadn't done this for awhile. We had been on Beale Street several times over the past two years since we moved to...

  • Club 152

    Memphis Nightlife

    Tony's favorite bar on Beale Street in Memphis. We enjoy going down here a few times a year, but this is the first time in the Winter months. We went to celebrate my 49th birthday...and we had to stop here first..this is his favorite location. It is a large location. It has a small rise above the street level so when you sit on the balcony area you...

    Memphis Nightlife

    Tony and I was enjoying Memphis and the Cold Night life on Beale Street and Tony was a little "drunk" so I thought maybe we should get something to eat, and he was ready to head back to the hotel. So we crossed the street in front of Hard Rock Cafe, I almost went here, but I have ate there before and I like to try new locations. So, WET WILLIE's...

  • Rayford's

    Memphis Nightlife

    The music at this club is great, but you may not like the environment very much. I think it used to be a strip club, so there are stripper poles on the stage. They also play this horrible siren sound every now & then that is just annoying. The only drinks they sell there are 40 ounce beers. It's not a very big club, so it can get pretty crowded...

  • Pat O'Briens

    Memphis Nightlife

    This place was a lot of fun. They have two pianos set up in front of mirrors that are angled so you can see the keys, and they have two players up there playing song requests. The atmospher was great. They also have the famous "hurricane" drinks in souvenier glasses, which you will want to be sure to get and take home with you. (They even box the...

  • Rum Boogie Cafe

    Memphis Nightlife

    This was the site of our first drink on Beale Street. We loved being able to sit outside and people-watch while we enjoyed a tall glass of Bud Light. (Unfortunately, the first one wasn't very cold. We came back to watch the parade from the patio on Saturday, and were very satisfied with the second!) The atmosphere here is awesome - they have...

  • Dan McGuinness Irish Pub

    Memphis Nightlife

    This place is run by real Irish people in Memphis. We've always enjoyed going to this place. The environment is great, the food is pretty good, and sometimes you can even find some live music here. My friends especially loved this place the first time we went. They were telling me about how they would bring out a cigarette & someone who worked...

  • RP Tracks

    Memphis Nightlife

    This bar is not far from the University of Memphis campus. You'll find a lot of the college kids come here to hang out, drink, & get a bite to eat. If you're looking for something to drink they have a great drink menu. If they don't give you one, ask for the shooter menu. It's extremely long & impossible to try them all. They have a great deal on...

  • Pig on Beale

    Memphis Nightlife

    Elvis impersonators and barbeque. Now you know you're in Memphis. Great audience participation and well-priced menu contribute to the success. A big draw since they pipe the music out to the street. The service was iffy, but who cares, Elvis is singing!

  • Speedway in Lights

    Each holiday season, the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, TN lights up with Christmas and holiday lights. Entrance is per car; you drive slowly around and into the racetrack (it's quite steep - the fastest half-mile in the world!), as well as down the separate dragway. There are hundreds of displays and scenes all in lights. About halfway through...

    The Grand Ole Opry is the world's longest running live radio show. Started in October 1925, it was originally broadcast from the fifth floor of the National Life & Accident Insurance Company building in downtown Nashville. The show soon became so popular that the small studio was not able to accommodate the thousands of fans who came to see the...

Beautiful cabins built high atop the mountain, all amenities, self-contained, with wrap-a-round front porches and swings where you can look out over the beautiful mountains, relax and enjoy the sites. Cabins are tastefully decorated, fireplaces,...

    The Blues were born on Beale Street. Beale Street is still wonderfully exciting. About three blocks of the old district are packed with blues clubs, restaurants and small bars.

  • Beale Street

    B. B. King's, Rum Boogie's, Elvis Presley's and the Hard Rock Café are all top quality clubs, but even the lowliest dives sometimes feature great entertainment. Many of the clubs also offer some great delta cooking like Bar-B-Q Memphis ribs and Cajun gumbo.

    As described earlier and in following sections, you should really take the opportunity to enjoy some live music while in Tennessee. We had the chance to take in some downtown country bars as well as a live dinner/dance show - both were excellent.

    Whether you're staying in Sevierville, Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, there are millions of things to do and places to visit. You might just want to check the Internet for some more info. You'll find a Hard Rock Cafe in Gatlinburg as well as other bars and clubs. We usually stop there 'cause we always end up bying shirts and other gifts from the gift...

    There are a number of good shows to see in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, including Louise Mandrell and Lee Greenwood, when they are there of course. Dolly Parton's 'Dixie Stampede' is fun to see once and the down-home food is good and plentiful. The dress is pretty casual as one would expect, and even in the evening it's just 'nice casual.'

  • Blues City Cafe

    For starters, Blues City Cafe has GREAT food!! It's also where a scene from 'The Firm' (Tom Cruise) was filmed. It's at the corner of Beale St and Third. Dont' miss hanging out there on a Sunday night-there's a great, fun, hip band (FreeWorld) who plays there every Sunday. Their music is funky-psychodelic (almost Grateful Dead-like or Phish-y). But...

    The Silverado Dance Hall and Saloon (new photo from recent trip).Very cool. Sight for sore Michgan eyes. Good crowd on a Saturday night. Lots of people, and pretty girls.

    What a place to party! Good atmosphere, cosmopolitan country. Country that kicks, show-stopping lights, galloping horses, great band, and huge dance floor. And the people in Tennessee love to dance, and know how to dance. It is a treat just to watch. And believe me, there were some great looking people (girls) to watch! (I won't get censored for...

    Blue Bird Cafe and Norma's in Nashville.You might run into a big country star at Norma's (maybe) and you might see a big star before they're ever a star at the Blue Bird if you go on open mike night (Monday's) No dress code but be prepared to be quiet and listen to the entertainment on open mike night at the Blue bird.
