While strolling around on Beale Street, we decided to stop for lunch and feasted at King's Palace Cafe. It was good food and a wonderful atmosphere where we were surrouned by musical history with old instruments hanging on the walls and antique instruments displayed in the windows. There were also numerous paintings created by black artists displayed on the walls.

Around the block from Beale Street are both the Gibson Guitar Manufacturing building and the Rock 'n' Soul Museum. We arrived too late to tour Gibson and see how the guitars are made, but spent plenty of time enjoying the Rock 'n' Soul Museum!

Farther down on Beale Street from Kings Palace Cafe is the Hard Rock Cafe. Nope...I've never been in one, but since they are so well-known, I thought I'd at least take a picture of it!  :)
