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!

It was a very rainy Sunday but we had brunch here before heading to The Dance Theater of Harlem at the Orpheum. Mimosa was just what I needed. Steak and eggs pretty good

Having lived across the street from The Beauty Bar in NYC for years, this restaurant's name caught my attention. In addition, a Memphian vouched for it being good. Good was really excellent. From the service to the food, everything exceeded my NY expectations. The decor...More

We welcome kids! We do not have a separate children's menu, but we have several items on each of our menu that suit pickier eaters, and more adventurous eaters will find plenty of foods they'll enjoy.

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.
