Visitor – I'm from Toronto, Canada and I was visisting my boyfriend in Memphis this past summer. All the clubs in Tennessee could not compare to the ones in T.O. until I went to Raiford's! This place is so hype! The nite I went, Raiford was wearing a gold lame jumpsuit and platform boots - I love that he's a relic from a great decade. And the beer they serve only comes in 40's - this was the highlight of my nite. I thought it was hilarious. I'll be back again someday.
Ghetto-fabulous – Moroccos at the door and grab yo' 40's! All ages, races, all people are one in this place. It looks like a converted Long John Silver's on the outside and its a little off the beaten Beale St. path...which can be a good thing. But...the music cycles after a couple hours...but with the flashing floor...by then your too dizzy to stay anyway!
Survival of Raiford's – Everybody was kung fu fighting
That floor was flashin' like lightning.
This boy I danced with was frightning
My exit was excellent timing!!!!!!
Raiford's was fun and adverterous. In a bad neighborhood, but well worth the bullets that we dodged to get there. I would suggest you be out of yo damn mind to go.
Raiford's Has Cadalliac Stlye – This place is Literally pimping. From the row of cadalliacs parked outside,the lighted dance floor, leather couches, and hundreds of chandaliers. This late night afterhours club is always smoking. Raiford keeps the music following and the Fourties following. This is definite check it out place.
pimpaliciuous – raifords is a great place to shake your groove thang and meet alot of trim
10 – This is an awesome place for the weekend!!! A very popular spot in Memphis!! Be sure to say hi to Raiford and Frances!!
"Hollywood" Raiford's Late-Night – What can you say about a double-wide sized bar that serves 40s with plastic cups, blasts funk, goes nuts with the smoke machine and packs in all kinds of people? Fun. That's a start. There's no place like it. Memphis at it's best, and quite possibly its craziest. Plastic chandeliers hang on low ceilings, the dance floor is shoulder-to-shoulder and you won't be able to see the person next to you thanks to the over-active smoke machine. Raiford's. You gotta love it.
