Broad Avenue Arts District

Broad Ave./Sam Cooper Blvd. between Hollywood and the railroad tracks
Memphis, TN 38112

Originally a suburban community on the rail line between Memphis and Raleigh, the Broad Avenue Arts District in Memphis sits at the end of the Interstate 40/Sam Cooper corridor.  It is now nationally recognized as a leader in grassroots economic revitalization. 

Today on Broad Avenue you will find the largest collection on locally-owned boutiques in Memphis, unique art galleries, the city's tallest public art installation (150 foot water tower), world class bike lanes, and national magazine famous restaurants. The district celebrates First Friday evenings of each month (except January) with art exhibits, pop-up artisans, community color, and food trucks. Visit Broad Avenue and enjoy these treats and more: 

- The Cove is a nautical dive bar complete with a pirate ship-inspired interior and swashbuckling cocktails like the absinthe-laced Sazerac.
