Neither rain nor sleet nor any holidays will keep the show from going on at Memphis Restaurant and Club in Addison. The club's stage has hosted live music every night since opening in 1981. With plenty of well-worn wood, rickety stools and brass rails, Memphis looks like a silver-screen version of a classic, cozy, smoke-filled nightclub.
