Places Open On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day In Memphis 2020

Posted by Holly Whitfield | December 20th 2020 13161 0

Here’s a working list of places in the Memphis area that will be open on December 25, 2020 and December 24, 2020, plus a list of places offering pre-orders for family meals and holiday catering.

UPDATE 12/22: Shelby Co. Health Dept.’s Directive 16 limits in-person dining rooms to 25 percent capacity and goes into affect on Dec. 26. Read the directive here. Please follow all health policies and wear a mask!

Everything on this list is subject to last-minute and frequent changes. Call ahead or make backup plans. Any establishment may decide to close or go to takeout-only at the last minute; that’s outside of the control of I Love Memphis. This guide will not be updated after 12/23 due to the holidays.

I am happy to make additions to the list; no one is left off on purpose.

RESERVATIONS + PRE-ORDERS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Iris, Andrew Michael and Sweetgrass are also offering holiday take out meals for families.

    Can’t remember the Iris and AM details but Sweetgrass is Prime Rib or Cornish Game Hens for two with sides. Pick up is on December 23rd and I believe last day to order is the 19th.
