Did you know that there are 175 restaurants in Downtown Memphis? That’s a lot of restaurants for one neighborhood.
The Downtown Memphis restaurant scene offers everything from fine dining to casual eateries to gathering spots like bars and coffee shops. There is truly something for everyone in this part of town.
If you were considering checking out a new Downtown restaurant, or wanting to revisit an old favorite, now is the time to make plans.
Memphis’ annual Downtown Dining Week is Nov. 6-12.
Fodor’s Travel released a list of the best hotels in North America, and three Tennessee hotels are on the list.
Arrive Memphis earned a spot on the unranked list of the 20 Best Hotels in the United States, Canada, and Central America for its uniqueness and all the hotel has to offer. Inside, the hotel has the bakery Hustle & Dough, the shuffleboard bar Longshot, the cocktail bar Bar Hustle, and the coffee shop Vice & Virtue Coffee.
Arrive by Palisociety is a hotel chain that brings people from outside of cities to the neighborhoods that represent the culture. It is located across from the train station Downtown and is half a mile away from Beale Street. The hotel offers a field guide for restaurants, attractions and shopping near the hotel. The chain has locations in Austin, Texas; Wilmington, North Carolina; Palm Springs, California; and Memphis with two new locations coming to New Orleans and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Even Brandon Marshall was taken aback when he saw his creation up close.
Marshall, with a handful of cameras and microphones pointed in his direction, turned around to look at the wall next to FedExForum’s Gossett Motors Garage just a little more than two hours before tip-off of the Memphis Grizzlies’ season-opener.
There it was: a 40-foot-tall, multi-colored mural that Marshall had designed for Big River Steel — a corporate sponsor of the Grizzlies — to decorate Big River Steel plaza outside the arena’s main entrance.
The historic Hotel Chisca building could once again be adorned with a sign bearing its name.
The building’s owner plans to change its rooftop sign, which reads “LYFE Kitchen,” with one that would read “The Chisca,” according to a request filed with the Downtown Memphis Commission’s affiliate Design Review Board.
A similar sign was once located atop the Hotel Chisca.
Puck Food Hall may soon get a fairy tale-like revival — well, sort of.
Developer Jared Welch plans to turn the 8,000-square-foot space into a new fine dining restaurant called Fable. Puck Food Hall closed in 2020.
Welch is seeking an $180,000 development loan from the Center City Development Corp., an affiliate board for the Downtown Memphis Commission (DMC).
According to the loan application, the total cost of the project is an estimated $1.4 million. The development loan funds would be used primarily for infrastructure and interior improvements, according to the application.
In the heart of the Edge District, rows of old, new and customized automobiles were parked up and down Marshall Avenue for the fourth annual Edge Motor Fest at nearby Edge Motor Museum during midmorning Saturday, Oct. 14.
Vehicle owners filed into the museum to fill out their registration forms and submit $20 for the festival’s annual motor-show competition. This year’s contest featured over 25 classes to compete from such as Classics, Antiques, Muscle Cars, Tuners and Street Rods.
Live music from the Bungalows, food trucks such as Smoke Ice, pop-up shops like Memphis Wine Society alongside goodie bags and door prizes were on display as well. All proceedings for the festival go into funding the Edge Motor Museum.
