Beale Street 

Legendary as the birthplace of the blues, today Beale Street thrives as a center for entertainment, dining, shopping, and culture. Nightclubs and restaurants, such as Alfred's, the New Daisy, King's Palace Cafe, Rum Boogie, Club 152, the Pig on Beale, Blues City Cafe, and B.B. King's Blues Club, draw thousands from all over the world for tastes of local cuisine and live music. Beale Street also features A. Schwab, a century-old dry-goods store, and W.C. Handy's home.
