Right in the heart of Downtown Memphis lies the legendary Beale Street. Since its creation in 1841, Beale Street has always been a commercial hub for the city. As the years progressed and the street and the area around it built up, it became known as a common place for traveling black musicians to perform. With the advent of the Orpheum Theater and the Church Park, many nightclubs restaurants and shops began to really fill the area. Through the early 20th Century, legendary musicians like Louis Armstrong, Muddy Waters and BB King performed on Beale Street and developed the Memphis Blues sound, and Beale Street is recognized by many as where blues music really began. Today, Beale Street is a major attraction in the city of Memphis with legendary blues clubs, restaurants and shops that have been around almost as long as the street itself. The street is also known for hosting the massive Memphis in May and Beale Street Music Festival every year.
