Cooper Young

Part of Midtown Memphis, Cooper Young is one-part diverse, family-friendly neighborhood and one-part entertainment hotspot. Its residential streets are filled with historic Craftsman homes that surround its two main thoroughfares, Cooper Street and Young Avenue. Here, Memphians enjoy the best in local restaurants, brews, and books from one of the city’s oldest and last remaining independent bookstores, Burke’s Books. Cooper Young is also host to two major annual events, Gonerfest and the Cooper-Young Festival, Memphis’ largest one-day festival.
