The Memphis Downtown/Midtown area is a truly happening place to live. From major corporations to hopping nightlife, this area of town offers something for all.
More and more people are migrating here to live, work and play. You’ll find varied sporting events, music venues, and trendy restaurants. After all, downtown is the home of the FedEx Forum, the Orpheum Theatre, Redbirds Stadium, the Peabody, and Beale Street.

Just east of downtown, Midtown Memphis offers an eclectic mix of art, music, and culture that simply cannot be found anywhere else in the city.

Great restaurants include Café Eclectic, Fino’s, Memphis Pizza Café, Bon Thai, Boscos and Central Barbeque. This area includes the beautiful Brooks Museum, Chickasaw Gardens, Central Gardens, Overton Square and Christian Brothers University.
