This street was buzzing with activity, street musicians and outdoor restaurants. We just walked through because we were eating somewhere else.

Went on a Saturday night and it was crazy, lots of young people dancing in the street, music coming from all over from the bars. Lots of the bars have a cover charge however you can buy a beer from a stand on the street...More

We stayed at a nearby hotel so we could get the Beale St experience but I guess we are too old? I’m 65 & have spent many enjoyable hours on Bourbon Street in NOLA with no fear. But on. Sat night, the Beale St experience...More

It turns out that every Wednesday night in Spring and Summer at 7:00 is motorcycle night and hundreds drive in and flood Beale St. But it’s not a wild scene, just more interesting. Beale St is an experience you should not miss!

Not as bad as Bourbon Street in New Orleans (which is awful) but it is just a tourist trap with loud music which is generally awful (for real jazz go to Clarksville, MS) and weak drinks. Spend 5 minutes walking down the street (just to...More

This is fun for a one night stop. Plenty of music but unlike Nashville or New Orleans many were charging a cover. This took the fun out of being able to move from place to place.
