The ambiance and the decor are really great. The food is ok. Service was swift and helpful (we asked them as locals for the top things to do and see the next day). But the band was world-class. A great surprise!

Of all the clubs and bars on Beale Street, Rum Boogie Cafe is the one not to miss. If their superfine rum selection and beer aren't enough to entice you, the Cajun and barbecue menu should-ribs, fried catfish, gumbo and red beans and rice served by fast and friendly servers. Live Music 7 days a week 365 days a year!
