Overton Square Street View


For locals, visitors and touring performers, Overton Square has been a go-to destination for entertainment and dining since the 1960s. But this midtown Memphis neighborhood is more than an entertainment hub – it’s a vibrant performing arts district where you can complement live theatre, ballet and music experiences with some of Memphis’ most authentic dining and shopping, and even stay overnight in a bold new boutique hotel.

Plan Your Getaway to the
Overton Square Performing Arts District

Day 1

Check into The Memphian Hotel for a boutique stay in the heart of Overton Square. You’re headed to a show later, so start with a showstopper of a meal with dinner at Panta. For this evening’s entertainment, choose from any of the district’s performing arts venues: Playhouse on the Square, Hattiloo Theatre, Circuit Playhouse and Ballet Memphis. Then go for late-night cocktails and live music at Zebra Lounge.

Day 2

Stroll to Overton Park to visit award-winning Memphis Zoo and explore the Old Forest. Spend the afternoon shopping the district’s unique stores. By night, try a different performing arts venue. When the show’s over, hit Lafayette’s Music Room for live music and drinks.

Day 3

Enjoy brunch at any of Overton Square’s restaurants. Local-favorite options like The Second Line and Boscos Squared pair delicious eats and drinks (including Boscos’ own craft beer) with inviting patios. Afterward, snap pics with colorful public art installations throughout the district.
