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.

Today on Broad Avenue you're likely to find pop-up shops, unique art galleries, fresh paint on vibrant murals, busy bike lanes, street vendors and TV-famous restaurants. Check out some of these highlights. 

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

- Wiseacre Brewing Co. brews up some of the finest Memphis craft beer

- Five in One Social Club is a living art studio that offers public classes and creative space

- Victory Bicycle Studio offers bicycles, repairs, professional fitting, and cycling performance analysis

- The Water Tower Pavilion provides a space for events, including the recent Dance on Broad series, concerts, spoken word performances, and more.  

- Three Angels Diner features one of the best burgers in Memphis, sandwiches, crispy fried chicken and a daily rotation of veggies. The crew on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives loved the adult grilled cheese with Gouda, goat and cheddar cheese.
