Met the nicest person organizing the store. She made my visit a once in a life time introduction to her hope's for their family store. My friend Lyn and I could have spent hours talking with her looking at the history of the past. Megan thank you for taking the time you spent with us. A once in a life time memory of the floors and old brick walls along with the old treasures. Hope to keep intouch with your dreams for the store Thank you , thank you Most sincerely yours, Gloria Fine-Gutierrez and Lyn Belt Texas friends.

A Schwabb was founded way WAY back before Beale became a tourist destination and just still rocks. Tons of great stuff, beautiful, huge old school soda fountain bar...

The best place for odd and unusual items, especially if you're from out of town, excellent memorabilia

The store is really great since it was remodeled. They have added an old fashioned soda fountain that serves food and drinks. You can also order specialty coffees and alcoholic beverages. In the store you can find all kinds of odd concoctions (hair tonics, vodoo elixirs and pumpkin butter) and a local history museum. They have a large collection of funky hats along with music from many of Memphis artists.

Great place for a LOT of unusual items. A clothing store, hat shop, curio shop, museum, soda fountain, and much more. Chances are, " if we don't have it, you don't need it."

This may be the coolest store on Beale Street.

Had an absolute blast at A. Schwab's. Initially thought it was another typical souvenir stand, but it ended up being one of the better stops on Memphis. Had fun messing around with the different hat selections, photo booth, and old-school bar with hand-made sodas. Definitely would suggest it.
