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 Café, B.B. King's, Rum Boogie, Club 152, the Pig, and Blues City Café, draw thousands from all over the world for tastes of local cuisine and live music. The street also features A. Schwab, a century-old dry-goods store, and W.C. Handy's home.
