We visited this street during the day and realised that to see the best of it it has to be visited in the evening when all the clubs and pubs come to life. However we still enjoyed the sights and sounds of the pubs and found the street to be very clean and the people very friendly and helpful.

Beale street is the entertainment strip. Many Bars and Restaurants to choose from. Great music at most including Live Acts. Recommended BB Kings Blues Bar for a drink.

As the street is barely 3 blocks long, and a number of places were closed (? US Thanksgiving weekend is "off season"), we were a bit underwhelmed. The clubs we did go into had excellent music, but I expected something a bit more like Bourbon st. In New Orleans
