I did see some where that under 21 is not allowed after 11, so my guess is you can get in and explore a bit before that, likely not bars after 9 unless you have a good fake.
Are they strict on ID's or would something resonably close get you in? Pokemon card??
Just have a hotel lobby party.
This is intimidating...
Letter: A grim scene on Beale Street » The Commercial Appeal
I asked the following question to the Beale Street Chamber of Commerse and got this response:
Could you tell me if Beale street is open to adults under the age of 21 during the New Year's Eve party?
Minors are welcome on The Street until 11:00 when accompanied by a parent or guardian. A minor who would appear to be over 21 and who might gain access to the area would need to abide to the letter of the law regarding alcohol purchase and consumption.
I know for the Power and Light District down in KC that you have to be 21+ to be allowed in after 11 PM. Might be the same for down in Memphis.
So if my wife, daughter and I are on Beale Street just hanging out taking in the sites before 11 are the cops going to kick us out of the street once it's 11?
My plan is to get us on the street before 11 and then blend in.
I don't remember I was hammered drunk, Beale Street sorta sucks on NYE anyway, way over crowded and wannabe thugs everywhere. I recommend doing Beale Street on the 30th because thats when its mostly just fans of the schools and not locals and then finding something else to do on the 31st.
