Named for a beloved Beale Street bluesman, Automatic Slim’s has been a staple in the downtown Memphis dining scene for 20 years. Slim’s has always been known for its innovative food and lively bar. The menu changes regularly using fresh seasonal ingredients from local farmers. Aside from the excellent food Slim’s boasts the largest martini list in Memphis and has become known for its famous popsicle martinis.
Over the years Slim’s has been featured in numerous international publications as the place in the mid-south to see and be seen. Some of Hollywood’s finest have stopped by such as Susan Sarandon, Tom Cruise, and Francis Ford Coppola.
The interior is a fun and ecclectic mix of works from several local artists which extends Slim's originality well beyond its menu.
