Went to Rum Boogie and BB Kings, awesome awesome! Weird thing was that they closed at midnight on a Wednesday? Probably a good thing cause we had an early flight home in the morning!

Just not my scene. Lots of police presence out at night. Drunks. Didn't find any good live music the night we went. Tourist area

We went there on a snowy day in January. The city was basically shut down but Beale Street had some shops open and the energy was great! It was really nice to walk around without bumping into tourists, people were happy about the dusting of snow, great karma.

Although we went during off season, we had a blast. Super fun place. Reminds me of Bourbon Street in NO. It's a must do.
