What to do in Memphis

Memphis is famous for music, barbecue, and Elvis, but its soul radiates well beyond Graceland, Sun Studio, and Beale Street to hip eateries, sexy bars, and art districts. Yes, Beale Street still has neon lights, block parties, and blues clubs like Rum Boogie Café and B.B. King’s. But just steps away, the NBA Grizzlies play at FedExForum. Walk a few blocks farther for Redbirds baseball, or hop the trolley to South Main for galleries, boutiques, and the Lorraine Motel’s National Civil Rights Museum. For the ultimate American rite of passage, drive to Graceland to explore the King’s iconic estate. Hungry? Favorites from downtown to Midtown include the Majestic Grill, a former silent picture house; Beauty Shop, a renovated 1940’s salon-turned-eatery; and the awesomely dark Mollie Fontaine Lounge, named one of Playboy’s best late-night bars.
