That place in the beginning is Cordova... those houses are built to look really nice, but they are falling apart junk... you can buy there for half of what the same SF brick house would sell for in East Memphis... And no, I don't go to any clubs or bars at all here. If I go out it's to a restaurant with a bar and usually no music at all. To me Beal St. is a backed up toilet with no plumber in sight
Spent a lot of time in Cordova, Germantown, Millington, Southaven in my youth. I do like Beale, though. Never a bad time there. Great music, great food, cheap beer.
