I love the cooper-young district. So beautiful and have many one-of-a-kind shops, restuarants and community outreach centers like OUT Memphis which was formerly known as LGBT Memphis. Plenty of history in a vibrant neighborhood.

in last several years the area has so improved - tons of great places to eat, local artists, convenient parking. Locals know it well and if you are travelling to Memphis - make sure you stop and see the area.

Surprised that this is a trendy area as it is directly under the flight path and a few blocks away from the train tracks. We did not get any sleep.

Cute, hip area, gentrifying, some interesting shops with character - which is good! Reminds me of Oakland, CA or Berkeley - but from the 70s.

This area is a must see alternative to Beale st as this is where locals will eat, drink and socialise. There are plenty of restaurant bars etc. A word of advice to make sure when drinking in Tennessee you may be asked for ID (even if you are well over 21) as a Tennessee law..

Caution - Freight trains run down Southern Ave., and we didn't expect them a couple of times after midnight, horns blasting. Hard to believe a dense residential neighborhood has to put up with it. With only a couple of days here, missed the chance to explore neighborhood.
