Loved this place. The atmosphere is great. We got a table right up front and were treated to fabulous blues by Eric Hughes and guitarist. Loved this place for its authenticity, it is NOT touristy. This is where you go to experience Beale Street.

We stayed for a few drinks, got there around 9:30. Waitstaff very friendly, crazy bartender sent me thru the "creepy door" to find the ladies room, she was right. It was adequate. Drinks were a little pricy but the atmosphere made up for it. Up...More

There is a small spot in front of the stage but not a big area. You can dance but we did not see any the night we were there.

You would have to check with Management, I didn't see any children earlier. Some clubs have restrictions on anyone under 21 after certain hour.
