Everyone knows Memphis is way into the live music scene, but finding true dance clubs in the city is a bit like the proverbial needle in the haystack. While folks have been known to get up and dance at places like B. B. King's or Rum Boogie Cafe, most spots on Beale Street are live music, not dance, clubs.
Fear not, however; plenty of the clubs on Beale and throughout the city offer dancing - but aren't strictly dance clubs.
Downtown is the best for club-hopping to find your groove, with a number of clubs centered on or around Beale Street. Alfred's is a favorite, thanks to the cover band that's as good as any DJ for a mix of dance tunes. Club 152 is basically three separate dance clubs in one, with crunk and hip hop, techno/electric and top 40 DJs spinning into the wee hours on three separate floors. Just off Beale, the Silly Goose is a ultra-swank lunge with a gorgeous crowd, and is an after-party spot for the young and beautiful.
Out in the suburbs, the Electric Cowboy is where the country boys and girls come to two-step and line dance, boots 'n all.
There's always a place to move to the Memphis beat; your job is to decide just what that beat is - and 10Best.com will hook you up with the perfect spot.
