There is a lot to enjoy at the beauty shop. Communal table seating, trendy crowd, decor, and interesting vegetables. The food was good, especially the grilled romaine salad. Some of the dishes were less than stellar, but everything was good.

I read about this restaurant in several travel guides so wanted to give it a try. It is in a pretty neighbourhood and they do have some tables outside in front. You can definitely see the bones of the former beauty parlour in the restaurant....More

Great service and atmosphere. Everything on the menu is good. For dessert get the coconut cake. It's the best slice of cake you will ever eat!

This was my 1st time at this establishment and I was really pleased with the décor of the place. It actually is set up like a beauty shop which I think is super cool. They didn't have a big food selection but what I did...More

Established in 2002. "Look Good. Eat Good." are the words emblazoned on the front windows at the Beauty Shop. This hip and trendy restaurant in the Cooper-Young district of midtown Memphis does both, as it conjures up images of a '50s-style beauty shop, formerly Priscilla Presley's curl-and-dye spot. It's a camp wonderland where the façade is Jetsons-era Vitrolite, and choice seating is offered beneath hooded Belvedere hair dryers. Nostalgia is served with a sense of humor here. The beauty shop flashback comes complete with original mint green wash basins filling in as sinks behind the hand built bar, made of tiger maple wood. The terrazzo floor is original. Glass brick stalls serve as intimate booths. Mixed with the retro renderings are modern touches such as hand-blown art-glass lights, and glamorous copper and silver-leaf walls. At this offbeat restaurant, the décor pays homage to the space's beauty parlor past, while the food offers flavors from around the globe.
