Memphis, TN 38103

When you walk into this Downtown spot, perhaps the most revered bar in Memphis, just soak it all in: the jukebox with a mind of its own; the dingy, now-vintage couch facing a wobbly, torn pool table; and the constant sizzle of beef on the griddle behind a worn bar. Upstairs, there are empty crumbling rooms—remnants of its days as a brothel—and a tiny corner-room bar, where $5 buys a mixed drink, Jack or vodka. Earnestine's is a feel-good place you'll want to come back to again and again.
