This place was voted the best Dive bar in the States and it definitely ranks up there. This is a real spit on the floor job with toilets upstairs having a bathtub for its clients years ago. Yes you guessed it, it used to be...More

Earnestine & Hazel's is a former house of ill repute now operating as a dive bar. It's shabby, beat up and supposedly haunted. The bartenders; Keenan, Karen and Nate have been there forever and manage to keep the chaos from becoming total chaos. It's on...More

We stopped into this dive bar after getting some BBQ on Main St. It is certainly a dive in every sense of the word; however, it was a great place to down some cheap beers (happy hour runs until 8:00) and listen to their juke...More

This place looks like a hole in the wall, and it is. They have a selection of drinks but if you want food they only have 'soul burger and chips'. This building was a lady of the night house until the mid-1990's and we were...More

I give Ernestine & Hazel's four stars for being one of my favorite "Dive" bars in the country. The jukebox has a great song selection, great burgers for last night and a great friendly bar staff that even took us on a ghost tour!

Was told to hit this place up on Sunday Nights. Jazz jams with a great old feel to it. A lot of history in this one place. And the Soul Burgers................Oh man. 1 isn't enough. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves Music.

I never lie on these things. First the bad: only beer and can get smokey late at night. Now the good: great jukebox, great people watching, and really a microcosm of Memphis-ness. I know people swear by the soul burger. And, admittedly, it is good...More

Fun little bar to grab a beer with friends. It is a hole in the wall but it has an interesting history.
