in last several years the area has so improved - tons of great places to eat, local artists, convenient parking. Locals know it well and if you are travelling to Memphis - make sure you stop and see the area.

We rented an airbnb here. Every tourist destination was within a 15 minute drive. Surprised that this is a trendy area as it is directly under the flight path and a few blocks away from the train tracks. We did not get any sleep. We did enjoy eating at a couple of local establishments. It is a safe area, I... More

Cute, hip area, gentrifying, some interesting shops with character - which is good! Reminds me of Oakland, CA or Berkeley - but from the 70s.

This area is a must see alternative to Beale st as this is where locals will eat, drink and socialise. There are plenty of restaurant bars etc. A word of advice to make sure when drinking in Tennessee you may be asked for ID (even if you are well over 21) as a Tennessee law..

Caution - Freight trains run down Southern Ave., and we didn't expect them a couple of times after midnight, horns blasting. Hard to believe a dense residential neighborhood has to put up with it. With only a couple of days here, missed the chance to explore neighborhood.

We went on the first Thursday of the month, which is supposed to be when stores stay open late, there are vendors and live music. We went about suppertime, almost all the shops (the few we could find) were closed. We checked out Burke's Books, which was great, and the House of Mews, which is a worthy cause. There are... More

Cooper-Young is a quaint little area with mostly restaurants. Mostly locals come here to avoid the tourists on Beale Street. A younger crowd hangs out at CY. They have some good restaurants, but If your time is limited, it is not worth going out of your way. We did have a nice dinner at the Celtic Cross but nothing special.
