Lafayette's Music Room Memphis
The original Lafayette’s Music Room was short-lived but still vividly remembered. During the 1970s, it was a small but influential venue rooted in the most happening corridor of Memphis. A key stop on the showcase circuit for up-and-coming touring artists, Lafayette’s played a significant role in launching the careers of such music superstars as Billy Joel, Big Star, KISS, Barry Manilow, J.J. Cale and Leon Russell, to name a few.
Today’s Lafayette’s Restaurant and Bar evokes that storied past. It boasts live bands seven nights a week, from local and touring acts playing rock ‘n roll to jazz to blues and everything in between.

Lafayette’s is one of my favorite places to hang out in Memphis.

Great menu and beer selection, live music. What more could you want?!
It was wonderful the food and service.
Creole Omelette was amazing great jazz band for burnch
Shared a pizza and a bucket of beer -- good place for listening to music if you can see from your table.
Had not been in some time and was really impressed with the variety on the menu. We had a terrific meal and will go back.
Great music… Great service!
Went for the band, and had a great time! Food was delicious
Go see Sam at Lafayettes! She is one of the best bartenders in Memphis.

music was awesome. don't go there to eat. food is alright
Date night with husband everything was wonderful. One of our favorite places to go.
Our blackened salmon salad and shrimp tacos were, as always, excellent. We LOVE Lafayette's!! We recommend it to everyone and try to go as often as we can. Just love the live music! Can't wait until the dance floor opens up again!
Great music, good food, good service. Highly recommend.
Great food and great atmosphere! We LOVED our time here!
Had a friends birthday and went out for drinks and they had a live band great atmosphere and vibe always
The food at Lafayette's is sooooo good. Our favorite is the house salad with their home made ranch dressing and blackened salmon. Outstanding EACH time! We love the music and the ambiance. I highly recommend Lafayette's!
We absolutely enjoyed the experience of having a meal here. The food is fantastic ...lots of different things to try and the atmosphere was fun and relaxing . I highly recommend.
The service was excellent, the cajun selection was over the top, and the band was rocking! Planning another visit soon.
The food and drinks were great & the staff was absolutely wonderful!
Brunch business meal. You can’t go wrong!
Another excellent brunch! Our server, Erica, took wonderful care of us!
Good food and great entertainment.
On weekends there is a cover charge for the live music. But the music is great as is the food. It is a little dark inside though
I went to see my favorite local band. What a nightmare! We are in the middle of a pandemic! There was no social distancing, most people were not wearing a mask, and people were so drunk they were dancing on top of tables! In addition to those issues, our service was slow and inattentive! I enjoy this local restaurant so much, but this was such a disappointment! I'll be back when they get it together again!
Great place to hear live music with friends and have a really good meal!
We drove up from Louisiana to see a couple bands play there, particularly the Chase Tyler band. The food was outstanding and the staff’s service was top notch! We never had to wait for the next drink it seemed like. This is a great place to watch live music and get some great food, not to mention the acoustics inside are perfect and the sound guy has each band dialed in flawlessly!!! We will be back, worth the drive!
Friend’s concert and a celebration of a new marriage.
Awesome venue. Must see in midtown !!!!’nnnnnnnnmm
Nice brunch spot.
The food has improved so much since the last time I ate there. The salmon was delicious!
Cool place although a bit loud for any conversation. I had a bit of a plumbing issue while their but the staff and the manager handled it very professionally. I would love to go back but will ask for a table a little further away from the stage. FYI the fried chicken salad is huge and very good!
Absolutely the best venue for drinks and dinner and entertainment.
Better chairs needed. After 3+ house in one metal chair one could hardly walk.
Chef Jody's creations were outstanding. Appreciate his attention to everything.
Keep it up as we will be back.
We are here regularly. Live music, service and food are excellent.
Music is always fabulous and great selection of food with fabulous patio options.
The service here is always great! The music and food are always on point as well!
