Welcome to BB King's
The redevelopment of Beale Street in the early 90s brought together B.B. King and the late Tommy Peters to create an iconic destination that paid tribute to the King of the Blues and his global influence on music. It became the anchor that led to a new wave of development on Beale Street and in the area as an entertainment attraction to support the existing music tourism that was coming to Memphis. B.B. King’s Blues Club is a supper club-style restaurant that opened during the Beale Street Blues Festival in May 1991. Since then, the club has served as a premier destination for tourists looking to experience the rich, Memphis music culture, as well as a favored hangout spot for locals to enjoy. The dual restaurant and club concept offers guests the sweet sound of classic soul, blues and rock and roll; top-notch barbeque; signature drinks that fill guests to the brim; and much more.
