The first Thursday of every month is a fun, filled evening in your favorite Midtown hot spot – Cooper Young!! Gather with your friends at the corner of Cooper Street and Young Avenue to enjoy live music by local Memphis solos and groups. Stroll around the neighborhood to enjoy discounts on everything from high heels and sushi to antiques and tattoos. Join us to see why the American Planning Association named Cooper Young “one of the Top 10 Great Neighborhoods in America” in 2012!
First Thursday Night Out in Cooper Young is when area independent business owners stay open late and dish it all up. Live music can be found at the Neighborhood Gazebo located at the corner of Cooper Street and Young Avenue and in other restaurant venues up and down the street. Browse and enjoy refreshments at local antique and retail shops while you are here. Be sure to sign up for drawings and giveaways.
Night Out starts promptly at 5:00 pm. The antique and retail shops are open until 9:00 pm and the restaurants and bars usually stay open until well past midnight. It is a guaranteed good time for your family and friends!
Come and enjoy the soulful jazz and funk rock that Memphis-based musical duo, Cherry Brooks and Cal Jackson, are known for. Cherry and Cal moved from Arkansas in 2006 after being awarded “Duo Performers of the Year” by the Ozark Music Awards. Don’t miss this special engagement by such a talented duo.
