Memphis neighborhood makes top 10 of most underrated nightlife spots in U.S.


A recent list named a Memphis neighborhood one of the most underrated nightlife spots in the U.S.

WealthofGeeks, an organization focused on money, travel and entertainment news, recently released a list of “America’s Most Underrated Nightlife Neighborhoods,” and a Memphis neighborhood made it into the top 10 of places across the United States.

The list includes 100 locations across the country that more than 3,000 survey takers voted on. Of these 100 locations, two communities in Tennessee made it, but, as the list hints at, they probably aren’t places that you would normally think of having a nightlife scene.

Here’s the list from WealthofGeeks.
