Whether it’s a date night, business outing, or a night out with friends, a visit to the Topgolf Swing Suites at Erling Jensen Small Bites is an absolute must.

Don’t wait for Topgolf to open its facility in Germantown, start swinging away now because believe me, you’re going to need the practice.

Topgolf Swing Suites at Erling Jensen Small Bites is an immersive social experience in a luxury private lounge located in East Memphis inside the DoubleTree by Hilton at 5069 Sanderlin Ave. 

In addition to the swing suites, it also acts as a restaurant and bar if you’re just looking for a good spot to eat and drink.

This takes everything you love about Topgolf and puts it in a luxury suite for up to six people. Each suite offers a giant screen, lounge space, and all the athletic equipment you need.

Beginners and advanced golfers can take aim at a variety of games from hitting giant colorful targets, attempting to hit your ball as close to the hole as possible, or play 9 or 18 holes in a simulated golf course which is all customizable.

While golf is the focus, if it’s not your game, there are a variety of other games to try out: baseball, soccer, football, hockey, and even zombie dodgeball (super fun and you WILL work up a sweat).

As someone who had never previously swung a golf club, I didn’t realize just how hard it was to swing and hit the ball. There were a lot of swings and misses before finally sailing the ball into the simulator screen. 

Which is why this is the perfect place to start practicing now!

Erling Jensen is one of Memphis’ founding fathers of the fine dining scene. At Erling Jensen Small Bites, it brings that same great taste into a more casual vibe with classic entrees and shareables.

Depending on your mood, you can start off with a local draft beer or opt for one of their cocktails. We tried the Smooth & Smokey Old Fashioned and the Memphis Blues cocktails before wrapping up with a Beale Street Brewing Space Age Sippin’ IPA. All delicious!

For the food, I went with the Flight of Small Bite Sliders to start which included a combination of shaved ribeye, grilled beef burger, and southern fried chicken sliders. Fried chicken was my fav of the three.

I can never say no to a Seafood Pasta which is exactly what I opted for with my entree. It’s one of my favorite’s I’ve ever had. Pan seared shrimp, U/10 scallops, and linguini tossed in a creamy carbonara sauce. So, so good.

Take a look at their full menu here. I have my eyes on the crab cakes and lamb chops to try during my next visit.

I hope you'll love experiencing Memphis with me.

Build your perfect Memphis meal:

I love to eat so if I were to have only one meal left.. I’m going all out. I’d start with an app of Gumbo Fries from Blue City Cafe or Bayou Fries from Chef Tam, wings from Good Fortune or Central’s (honey gold and Jamaican Jerk), potato salad from Fat Larry’s, side of bbq spaghetti from Bar-B-Q Shop, and fried okra from Soul Fish. All paired with a Beale Street Brewing Space Age Sippin’.

Your most memorable Memphis moment:

College GameDay on Beale Street. That was an electric and perfect morning. I was still working in news then and was able to take it in up close and on the stage at some points. The fun and joy of everyone down there that morning is unbeatable.
