Memphis has a mystical quality about it, a gentile shabbiness that feels a bit like a treasure hunt. Where one block might seem forgotten, the next will suddenly transform into a cultural oasis, where the creative class have turned beauty parlors into restaurants and abandoned warehouses into social clubs. There is a sense of pride in place, and a deep history that is rich and dynamic.
