2017 is shaping up to be a big year for Highland Strip, near the University of Memphis.
Millions of dollars in investments are revolutionizing the area and bringing in new businesses and excitement.
One of the newest additions to the strip is not open yet, but owners said it should be open in the next few weeks. The Bluff, a Cajun restaurant, sports bar, and live music spot will soon be open at 535 South Highland. “We kind of go for a more industrial, rustic feel,” general manager Jamie Irby said.
Gone are the dirt floors and baby blue walls that used to occupy the space. “We want to make this more of a destination for people--give them other options besides going downtown, besides going to Overton Square,” Irby said.
