Re: “B.B. King's Blues Club

My food was excellent. Ribs just fell off the bones. Took a little time, but the music was so good and the food so good, you did not mind. The waiter we had was very personable and courteous. Have eaten there before and will ent anytime I have the opportunity. Sorry for those who had problems. I would recommend people try for themselves, different strokes for different folkes.

Re: “Bar Louie

Great place to sit and have drinks. I love the calamari appetizer too. Always had people come to check on me right when I sat down, so I have no idea what Bill was talking about... of course, I'm not a jerk to staff, and I do tip.

Re: “Wild Bill's

This is where the original Memphis Walk (pre-Jookin') dancers hang out. We rented it one night for a Nut ReMix cast party and Lil Buck danced with these fore-bearers of the art form. It was a stunning evening. Kids can't go because smoking is allowed, but you can catch some of the best REAL Memphis music in town here. Thank goodness it is still there.

Re: “Alfred's

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.

Re: “Bar Louie

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.

Re: “Twelve Bar

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.

Re: “The Windjammer Restaurant

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.

Re: “T.J. Mulligan's 64

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.

Re: “Memphis Nites Club

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
