40+ Ways To Stay Cool In Memphis This Summer

40+ Ways To Stay Cool In Memphis This Summer

It's almost officially summer, and Memphis weather has not been shy about it. Like, at all. It's just a teensy bit sweltering. Personally I'm covered in mosquito bites and have already entered the perma-sweating stage.

The good news is that there are some easy ways to get through it without staying completely indoors until November. Read on to find out ways to escape (or embrace) the heat.

Get a frozen treat.

Memphis knows how to make a delicious, icy-cold, frozen treat (with or without booze). There are so many options, but here's a quick list.
 

Enjoy a Memphis patio

If you suffer from patio addiction despite the heat, there are a few spots that have gone out of their way with misters and fans to make their patio a little more palatable (subject to change, call ahead to confirm seating availability, hours, and if the misters or fans are on.)

  • Slider Inn
  • Bayou
  • Aldo's in midtown
  • Celtic Crossing
  • Loflin Yard

I'm looking for more. Let me know if you know of any patios with great fans and misters. Click here for a full list of places to enjoy patios in Memphis (including info about which ones are Fido-friendly).

Head to a Memphis museum

Get thee to air conditioning! ALL HOURS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITH NO NOTICE I'M SORRY BUT YOU HAVE TO CALL AHEAD

Play inside

There are plenty of places to play inside that the kids (or kids-at-heart) especially will love.

Main Event and Dave and Buster's are two good options for arcades and games. Try laser tag and arcade games at Golf 'n' Games on Summer, indoor trampolines at SkyZone or Jumping World USA, and tons of activities like arcade games, go-carts, and laser tag at Incredible Pizza in Cordova.

Get In The Water

You can try several public parks in Memphis that have either public pools or splash parks. Here's a list.

Enjoy Live Music
Live music inside in the AC? Yes please.
  • Check out The B-Side which is inside the Minglewood Hall complex in midtown. They opened late 2018 and have plenty of live shows from local bands, plus friendly bartenders and fun snacks.
  • The Green Room at Crosstown Arts is inside the Crosstown Concourse building, and they have a truly diverse, eclectic lineup of music and DJs most days of the week. Stop in that Art Bar while you're there, too.
  • Hi Tone Cafe has a wide range of chill shows, comedy nights, open mics, and drag shows happening in both the upstairs and downstairs spaces. 

What are some other ways you're keeping cool during this Mid-South summer?
