On the corner of Beale and 2nd, with amazing music 7 nights a week. For a great night out, I suggest eating at Itta Bena above the club then taking the back stairs to the club and finishing off the night with some great blues music.

Claiming to be 1 year older than Arcade and the oldest restaurant in Memphis, Westy's has a comprehensive menu, good beer and wine selection, and great atmosphere. Great for lunch or dinner, but closed from 2pm-5pm so not good for a mid day snack.
