Great music, and good drinks too. There was a cover charge of $5-, no big deal because the atmosphere was great and music was some of the best I heard on Beale Street. The band we heard was more of a rock 'n roll band...More

We came in early afternoon before a show. The place is aged, not the cleanest. I ordered the hot smoked wings. They were exceptional. The beer selection is not the best.

Probably a better place to just drink and listen to music, but we tried the food too. Arrived before the music started and were able to get through most of the meal before it was too loud to have a conversation with my co-workers. Food...More

Yes, starting around 8pm every night there is a cover. They have live music 365 days a year. Cover can vary on weekends depending if there is a national touring act.

Of all the clubs and bars on Beale Street, Rum Boogie Cafe is the one not to miss. If their superfine rum selection and beer aren't enough to entice you, the Cajun and barbecue menu should-ribs, fried catfish, gumbo and red beans and rice served by fast and friendly servers. Live Music 7 days a week 365 days a year!
