The Beale Street Tap Room is sort of the clubhouse on Beale for tourists and locals alike. Located at 168 Beale Street (right beside King's Palace Café), the Tap Room stands out in ways that might not be apparent on first glance.
The club is smaller than many on Beale…long and skinny as they say.
There are hundreds of rare beer cans lining the walls. For the sports fan, there are four TVs, including a huge flat screen. Most often, the tubes are tuned to (depending on season) Memphis Tiger basketball or SEC Sports in general. The bartenders are always happy to switch over to another channel for you if you happen to be a fan of a team in a different conference or league.
The Tap Room features live music every Friday and Saturday. Each of the clubs on Beale has its own niche musically (blues, soul, DJs, etc.) and the Tap Room stands out as the only venue on the street that consistently features rock acts. We feature the best up and coming local and regional bands that you will hear no other place on the street.
The Beale Street Tap Room is also famous for its Mug Club. It is undeniable that beer tastes better when you drink it out of your favorite mug. Therefore we started the TAP ROOM MUG CLUB. For the one-time price of $20 you get your own mug and receive $1 off the regular pint price as a member every time you come in. More than that, your mug becomes a part of Beale Street history.
We have members of the Mug Club from around the world. Some folks may not make a return trip to Memphis for years, but their mugs will be waiting for them when they arrive. Most people like to put a personal touch on their mug which we encourage because, as the number of mugs grows, it is easier on the bartender if he can look for something specific that makes a particular mug stand out.
So drop by, get your mug for posterity, and enjoy live music every weekend.
Open 5 pm - 2 am, Open early on the weekends
