It may not look like much from the outside—what dive bar does, really?—but Earnestine & Hazel's is a local institution. Perhaps it's because the bar was once a brothel. Or maybe it's due to the ghosts who (allegedly) live upstairs. It could be because of the A-listers, including Ike and Tina Turner, Otis Redding, Solomon Burke, and, yes, Elvis, too—who once frequented it. Or it might have something to do with the Soul Burger, which is the only slab of juicy meat one can procure in downtown Memphis at the ungodly hour of 2am. ($10 will score you a burger, chips, and PBR.) Whatever it is, this South Main bar is a staple and a must-visit for all first-timers to the Bluff City. Be sure to check out the memorabilia, photographs, and press clippings that line the wall and serve as a timeline of the bar’s lengthy existence.
