Java Cabana, Cooper-Young's Coffeehouse, has the longest running Open Mic Nite in the city, going on 21 years. Open Mic Nite is every Thursday from 8-10pm. You can bring your songs, your poems, your stories. All they ask is to share original works.
everything i order there is perfect, service is always awesome, sometimes its a wait because they are so awesome but its worth it. sometimes you have to wait 4 the best. Good date spot, good hang out with friends spot, also good parking and good place to bring kids or have a private party.
Salmon & veggies were not good at all, Live band was great, customer services was not good from bar tender taking order and servicing us dining at the bar. However from the door the men at the door were nice when entering being carded and paying for entry. When a new male bar tender came and started his shift the service was nice. My date & I started to enjoy ourselves. I wouldn't go there unless u just wanted to hear a good band and u weren't hungry or didn't want drinks. Oh and silverware was dirty.
My wife and I used to come here and could barely finish our bowls now it is barely e nough to wet your palate. Cumon guys ok mayb food cost have gone up! Pass it on just don't cheat your customers. My wife and I are 3 for 3 and we are done with u guys. Good luck moving forward.
My friend celebrated her 50th Birthday party here and it was exquisite! Elegant, fun, and the band was amazing. This was definitely an evening that I will never forget. Her theme was Diamond and Denim! Fun for all ages!
A top notch steak house. Atmosphere not cold like some others on Poplar. Food always good. Piano Bar a gem in Memphis
this is a great midtown bar food is always cooked to perfection.check out the hot wing rolls,great prices and always something going on music karaoke quiz nites
Best trivia in the city! Every Tuesday night at 8.
Really inattentive wait staff - It was quite unbeleavable - especially between 5:30 and 6:30pm - they all sat at a table by themselves and ignored the tables. We had to go ask for menus and drinks.
One one occassion, some one jooined our table and put in an order for a beer - the waiter hurried by and plunked down a bottle with out asking if they wanted a glass or anything to eat.
We have gone three times with small groups (4-7) and have had similar experiences. appitizors were either incredably balnd or so "hot" that they were close to impossible to eat.
I have been to 12 Bar several times since it opened. There is always a lively crowd but not the typical "loud" Beale Street scene. I always feel like I am stepping into an old speakeasy from the 20s. They have a great cocktail list with drinks you don't find at other bars in Memphis and they are always great. My personal Favorite is the Corpse Reviver. You must try the Duck Fat Fries they are AMAZING. I have also had the Memphis Soul Stew, which I have not seen anywhere else in Memphis and is really good.
This is becoming one of my favorite places to "escape" to downtown and I will definitely be back soon.
I met sammy haggar there in the 1975
Awesome! You don't go to the Windjammer to eat - although the bar food is decent - you go for drinks, the fun crowd and the karaoke. We had a blast.
Gee, somebody's an a biggotted jerk. Anyway, I loved the place. Always have.
I wish I could've written this sooner, but alas, my work schedule is long hours on certain days. Less than a week ago I went to the TJMulligans on Houston Levee Rd in Cordova, TN to have a few drinks after work and unwind with that lovely pastime “Buzztime Trivia”. There was only one other player at the time, and after a few unsuccessful attempts to conversate across the 15 foot gap between us, he moved chairs to sit directly to my left, sharing the TV I was watching. I won't mention his name but it starts with an 'R' and rhymes with 'Peed'. At first we were having fun, talking trash, making jokes and explaining our (sometimes poor) trivia selections. It is at this time that I should say I'm a 29 year old normally attractive, married, tomboyish female who does not 'flirt' but enjoys normal people conversation. I have lived in 'Murica my whole life and have no problems having normal 'people sitting across the aisle on a bus' or 'people you see at the smoking section at work' or 'people who cashier your groceries' chit-chat conversation. I was a bartender and server for many years and have never had a problem treating all people equally and with respect- regardless of age, sex, orientation, race or any other bu||sh#t divisors. Under no invitation on my part, this guy decides to put his right hand on my (very) upper left thigh and give it a rolling squeeze. I was shocked. I know I'm probably a lucky member of the female persuasion in that I had never been groped in such a manner, but I have had drunk a$$hole$ swat at my waitressing behind as I'm walking by with a tray of food (to which they got a stern WTF reprisal). I gave this jerk the benefit of the doubt (I know) and said, “I did NOT give you permission to touch me, do it again and I will taze you.” Now I didn't have my taser on me, but somehow I thought the phrase made it more clear that his advances were not welcome. What does this lookalike for a certain fictional character baring the chest tattoo “I AM A RAPIST PIG” do? He takes his fat, sausage-like appendages and grabs my upper thigh again in a rolling squeeze- this time sliding his corpustular fingers into my inner thigh area and Strongly “massaging” my flesh between his nasty, shameful “I'll do what I want” digits. With a pervert's smirk no less. I yelped out “WTF, Man!?”, physically pushed his arm away to make him let go, and moved down to a different seat. This is where the story gets interesting. I immediately told the female bartender while in earshot of the Molesting Meat Pocket (MMP) and at least one barback. She said “I'll talk to him.” She DID NOT. The MMP proceeded to talk about how I'm drunk, I'm always drunk, yadda yadda, he didn't touch me, lies, lies etc. Now, being of Irish descent, I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that 2 drinks does not a drunk me make. But that's besides the point. Even if I were wearing gogo boots and a tube top instead of cargo pants and a tshirt, even if I had been on my tenth drink instead of my second, HE DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO MOLEST ME! As I watched him being served another drink and his food order without ANYTHING being done about it, I again let the bar staff know that I had just been sexually molested in front of them. NOTHING WAS DONE. I happened to see the same female bartender in the ladies room just after that where I complained a third time and demonstrated (on myself, not on her) exactly what he had done. “I'll talk to him.” SHE DID NOT. Apparently the MMP is a 'regular' and can buy his way out of repercussions. All of a sudden it hit me. This is what those women in India go through with their 'Eve-Teasing'. They are molested, assaulted, and nothing is done about it when they report to the authorities. The assaults are bad enough, but the most infuriating part is that NO ONE DOES ANYTHING.
Would I recommend TJMulligans in Cordova? Only if you enjoy being felt up by disgusting, MMPs at the bar, in front of the morally devoid waitstaff, only to have your protests ignored in favor of slimy, under-the-table $5 tips that are 'earned' at your expense.
It wasnt what I thought. Place was super packed and super hot! Small dance floor. It was definitely not for me. Plus THEY are a full bar and BYOB. BYOB admission was a total of $30. $3 for a can of coke. The owner is making a killing and obviously not investing it back into his business! #IWouldNotRecommend
Overall a great place but to damn smokey. Memphis needs to get on board and ban all indoor smoking.
Total shithole. My friends and I come back from college and partied here. It is still a mystery to me why people would choose this inbred oldhome. To hear that this place is called restaurant, is a joke. This place is gross.I feel genuinely sorry for anyone who eats food from here. Every single staff is above the age of 50, except this tubby Asain, avoid him at all costs, huge asshole. I always feel the need to shower upon leaving this place. Maybe it's because every single surface of this rundown bar is sticky icky. Service is nice and slow, every time. Gotta love that musky cig/local drunk sweat aroma they got going though. GO TIGERS!
It is soooooo fun! The bouncer and the staff are so sweet! I love it so much!
I MUST SAY THAT THIS PLACE ROCKS...1ST ANNUAL LADIES NIGHT W/FAMILY ..SO WE DECIDED TO DO KAROAKE ...SO ANYWAYS WENT TO THE WIND JAMMER AND BABY WE HAD A BLAST....THE BURKS FAMILY...MUST DO IT AGAIN SOON..........LOTS AND LOTS OF FUN
The food is bar fare but it's a bar so what do you want? Actually, the food is much better than other similar places.
The beer selection is what draws me. It really gives Flying Saucer a run for its money. That alone would rate it 4-5 stars.
Factor is the food and it rates 3.5 but I'll round up in this case.
