We had toured the two houses across the street and had to come back for a drink. My wife and I loved the place ! Quirky, funky and like few other places you'll see. We ran into people we met earlier in the day at the Peabody and it was like old home days, sharing a drink with them. If... More

This is my favorite secret getaway! I love all the decor, very eclectic! Fun staff. Diverse crowd. It's like walking into another world. Great place for a drink and to get away! Small plates are good as well!

Mollie Fontaine's has probably the funkiest atmosphere of any bar in Memphis! It has a super historic feel and is very eclectic. It definitely has a great ambiance. Super conducive to great conversation, a game night with friends, or a fun date night! On the pricy side, but well worth it! It feels like hanging out inside an old (large)... More

My wife and I dropped in for a cocktail and ended up having several with some sliders. Its a great fun place with a touch of southern decadence. It did remind me a little of a victorian bordello, without the girls of course. Recommended and also very friendly staff. Its just a shame ists not open every night.

First of all, this is quite an interesting little place. An old house turned bar/restaurant. We were one of the very few people in the bar on the main floor. The waitress was nice, though not totally informed about what they had to offer, but we finally got drinks, enjoyed our self-guided tour around the house and had our drinks... More

WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS PLACE!! i WANT THEM TO MOVE TO CHICAGO! Everything was from it's own time. The atmosphere, wait staff were outstanding and you really felt the presence of a by-gone era. They have done a superb job of saving a beautiful Victorian from demolition. The drinks are one of a kind and the food was pure south.

The owner of the Airbnb apartment we were staying in had recommended Mollie Fontaine’s Lounge, and so my daughter and I set off into the Memphis night. Adams Avenue was not much more than a hundred yards away; the lounge looked to be in a Victorian house. The people on the street outside were the bouncers, and what did they... More

Stopped here EARLY in the evening (just after opening), so can't speak to what a late-night vibe might be like, but I loved having the bartender all to myself! This is an OLD Victorian home that has been refreshed with a fun/funky/eclectic interior, with bars and seating areas on multiple floors! NOTE that they are only open half the week,... More

Although off the beaten path, my daughter and I loved this lounge within a quaint Victorian home. The outdoor area was lit with lanterns within a garden. The inside was eclectic and unique with creative repurposed furniture and lighting. We chose to sit downstairs in order to hear the piano/vocalist that evening and enjoyed sipping our cocktail and people watching.... More
