Welcome to The Cove
Cocktails - Oysters- Atmosphere!
The Cove is a retro, nautical-themed bar and restaurant that is a resurrection of the type of dive that used to exist on every corner in New Orleans. The presence of the legendary Anderton's Restaurant Ship Bar, however, gives The Cove a flavor that is uniquely Memphis.
The Cove specializes in fresh oysters and classic hand-crafted cocktails. Our sea-going décor and romantic lighting offer an intimate setting in which to savor delicious seafood, such as shrimp remoulade and baked oysters, as well as panini and pizzas. The Cove offers the most incredibly extensive cocktail list in the region, including more Bourbons and Rum than any other bar in town!
Music, ranging from bluegrass to jazz, can be heard most evenings. (Check our listings in Memphis Flyer’s After Dark schedule.)
The Cove was the catalyst for Broad Avenue's revival, and maintains the original diamond-in-the-rough atmosphere of this now burgeoning Arts District on the edge of Midtown. Please be advised, we are a 21 and older bar— however, we are Non-Smoking! (But, we have a great patio!)
Make your plans to experience the atmosphere, music, food, and spirits of The Cove... the Memphis Destination Bar that is sure to satisfy your craving for a touch of the “Big Easy!"
The Cove is widely known for its meticulous preparation of cocktails, including the nation’s oldest known cocktail: New Orleans's famed Sazerac. We pay homage to the original recipe established in 1793 using the prescribed rye whiskey and absinthe. Whether a beginning cocktail adventurer, or a jaded aficionado, the experience of our special Sazeracs should not be missed.
Sometimes The Cove is simply a quiet place in which to enjoy great company, great food and finely crafted cocktails. Then, there are other nights when The Cove springs to life with the music of the coolest bands in town: Texas Swing Bands, New Orleans Brass, and the hottest contemporary sounds. The Cove is the favored hangout for Memphis's musicians and artists; stop in to see why: you'll love it here!
