Jerry Lee Lewis Opens New Club in Memphis

By May 8, 2013

Follow me on:

Even the most ardent fans of Jerry Lee Lewis probably never laid down bets he'd make it to 77, but the Killer's still going strong, with yet another new album on the way, a new spouse (wife #7!) and a new eatery/nightclub on Memphis' historic Beale Street. Jerry Lee Lewis' Café and Honky Tonk (310 Beale St.) is a living museum of Lewis' legend, one born in the city's famed Sun Studios, and as such features lots of memorabilia from the Killer's reign. Though he doesn't plan to play there very often, longtime manager J.W. Whitten has confirmed the occasional Jerry Lee performance. The menu prominently features Memphis barbecue, but there's also other Southern favorites from Lewis' North Louisiana upbringing. Just don't expect a cheesy malt shop; true to its name, the first club to bear the Lewis imprimatur bows to the piano pumper's past by recreating an authentic Southern honky-tonk atmosphere.
