Here’s the 2014 Peabody Rooftop Party Schedule
Here's one way to be sure that spring is coming to Memphis soon: the Peabody Hotel has released their 2014 rooftop party schedule.
The Peabody's rooftop parties have been a staple of Memphis' spring and summer social life since 1939. They're hugely popular – the rooftop can hold hundreds of people, and it's one of the best places to see the sunset over the Mississippi River. This is the 75th Year of the Peabody rooftop parties. (To read more about the location of the first rooftop parties in Memphis, go here.)

Admission to most of the rooftop parties is $10, which includes access to the snack buffet (drinks are extra). Ladies, get there early – you get in free before 7 p.m. If you're planning to go most Thursdays, get a VIP season pass for $125 that gets you into all 18 parties, free valet parking, access to a special VIP food and drink area and access to a special elevator line (which doesn't seem like a big deal, but very much is when hundreds of people are trying to get to the roof all at once).
Every Thursday from April 17 – August 14
6 p.m. – 11 p.m.
$10 cover ($15 on some nights) / ladies free before 7 p.m.
