When you visit "historically hip" Cooper Young located in Midtown, Memphis, you will find thriving businesses and a strong sense of community. Southern hospitality combines with youthful energy to create this most diverse, popular neighborhood and trendy entertainment district. Walk this early 1920's neighborhood and experience what is a wonderful, little enclave known as the Cooper Young Historic District. Not only will you find some of the most artistic homes in the city but also some of the coolest people in the heart of Memphis.

You can dine at an array of Memphis' Best of the Best restaurants, stroll with your coffee while you browse our antique and eclectic shops. At the end of the day, stop by one of our vintage stores and get set up for a night on the town. You will be taken care of by these chefs and owners, some known nationally and internationally for their cuisine. Unwrap that beehive and don't forget your cat-rimmed sunglasses!!

Experience the nightlife in Cooper Young where hundreds are drawn each month to the popular First Thursday "Night Out". The fun begins promptly at 5:00 o'clock sharp and lasts until 9:00 pm. On this night, the antique, specialty shops, local restaurants and bars offer up discounts. Live music can be had; not only at the neighborhood square but in local businesses all free for your listening and dancing pleasure. From karaoke to ballet, the decision is yours!!

Stay until September to let the inner bohemian in you go and dance at the corner of Cooper and Young at the annual Cooper Young Festival. This event has become the largest single day annual event in Memphis. It is a family affair that draws over eighty thousand to our little neighborhood. From artists to flea market vendors, the streets are lined with over 370 booths. The music is some of Memphis' finest on three different stages; there's nothing better in the city. It is a get down delightful experience for all ages. Who knows, you just might decide to stay and join us as a neighbor in this historic oasis we love and know as Cooper Young.
