We had a blast here!! The food, drinks, and music were the best in town! Everyone that worked here was so nice - true southern hospitality! We can’t wait to go back and visit when we’re in Memphis again!

There were only about 20 people there and while the band [VIP} was pretty good we felt really sorry they couldn’t get the audience they deserved and needed. Food was ‘OK’ but inexpensive, hence the reasonable score. Parking was a pain – we ended up...More

The music lives on...Some 38 years after going dark, the legendary Lafayette's Music Room returns to the heart of Memphis' revitalized Overton Square. Once again, Lafayette's is the spot to enjoy great food, good local conversation, and some of the best live music in town, seven nights a week. In the South, we are known for great music, but we do some pretty great food here, too. Lafayette's kitchen, led by Chef Jody Moyt, features a variety of southern-inspired offerings - for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch - like po-boys, shrimp and grits, wood-fired pizzas and made-from-scratch desserts. And you can thank Jody's grandma for the Grannie's Chocolate Chess Pie. It's her treasured family recipe that we serve up with love.
