Location is Everything at the Memphis Event Venue

409 South Main is located in Downtown Memphis, which is a strong case for this space being a perfect location for special events, outside of weddings.

For example, a reception at 409 South Main that starts off as a subdued gathering can easily move into the party zone. All guests need to do is to take the trolley and they'll find themselves in the rich Memphis nightlife. Or you might begin in the Downtown area and then move into 409 South Main for the actual celebration.

Or you may want to take advantage of the spirit of the South Main Art District, and create a lengthy event that traverses the other art offerings in the area. When you do, you can end up with your gallery opening at 409 South Main, helping you have the perfect place for an evening of cocktails and exhibits.
