Lafayette's reclaiming roots with upcoming expansion

Lafayette's Music Room in Overton Square will be expanding by mid-February, moving its stage back to its original spot from the early 1970s when mega acts like Kiss, Kansas, and Billy Joel played before becoming huge superstars.

Lafayette’s re-opened at 2119 Madison Avenue in Overton Square three years ago, after originally being a popular spot in the early 1970s.

“For those guests that enjoyed us back in ‘70s, this is going to bring back some fond memories for them,” said Lafayette’s general manager Julian Salley. “The really cool opportunity we have here is to create something awesome for local Memphis.”

Lafayette's offers nightly live onstage music along with a full menu by executive chef Jody Moyt.
