Nightlife in Memphis

South Main includes Memphis' historic buildings, like the ornate Orpheum Theatre. But no trip to Memphis is complete without a sampling of Beale Street nightlife. Two of the city's favourite blues venues are located here, BB King's Blues Club and Rum Boogie Café. You'll also find the FedEx Forum here, home to major sporting events and concerts. You can buy a wristband from the local tourist office to avoid paying covers in every club.
