Tucked between downtown Memphis
and the revitalized Uptown area, St. Jude provides an enviable central location. Downtown Memphis sits less than two miles southwest, easily accessible by the Memphis Area Transit buses that traverse the neighborhood.
In St. Jude, high-rise apartments soar above office buildings and busy streets, creating a distinctly urban vibe. Weekdays buzz with energy, thanks to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the Memphis Cook Convention Center, and the variety of corporate
offices that anchor the neighborhood. If you're after a quieter living situation, look for rentals near North Lauderdale Street.
On the weekends, locals gather at Westy's for a Goldcrest 51 beer and a catfish basket. For a true dose of Tennessee hospitality, bring your appetite to Alcenia's for smothered pork chops and sausage gravy. For a dose of the great outdoors, head east to the Wolf River Harbor and the Mississippi River for expansive water views.
