I recommend staying in Downtown Memphis as there is so much history there and a ton to do. One of my favorite hotels is the Madison Hotel. It is an example of the vision that Memphis leaders had to preserve and renovate downtown properties. The stylish Art Deco-inspired Madison Hotel was built in 1905 and is known for its rooftop bar. The views of the Mississippi River are breathtaking, and live music is part of the mix.

Once you are checked in, head to Patterson Street for a quick cocktail at Vault Memphis, the first frost rail bar in the city. If you aren’t in the know, a frost rail creates a crisp, dry frost on the bartop to keep your beverages chilled. Vault Memphis has gorgeous interiors with lots of luscious wood and exposed brick.
