Newby’s was established in 1975, located in Memphis, TN, Home of the Blues and Birthplace of Rock-n-Roll. Too Tall Todd, an original bartender for David “Newby” Harsh; bought the local bar in 1997. Known as the friendliest bar in town, with the tastiest marinated chicken sandwich under the sun, Newby’s offers some of the best original menu items you’ll find anywhere in Memphis: Memphis smothered and covered tatter tots, fried pickle chips, stone cooked pizzas and in the spring Live Crawfish cooked Hot ‘n Spicy to name a few… Located on what used to be an old 50’s strip with a theatre, diner, retail store and soda fountain/drug store, Newby’s now has a pool hall, concert hall, bar, dining area and full sized patio. The bar/restaurant area offers live music, in a mid-sized venue attached to the bar, as well as small acoustic acts barside, in an intimate setting-and the open-air back patio is always available for private parties. Home of the world famous “Rock Star” (a Long Island Tea jacked up with Energy Drink) and “EZ shooter” (Orange Flavored Vodka and an easy mix of fruit juices served chilled & up as a shooter) :/food Newby’s has a fully stocked bar and extensive beer selection. From the front patio, you can watch the hustle and bustle of busy Highland Avenue while you sit back and enjoy a cold beverage. Newby’s menu is varied and offers a bit of something for everyone. A house favorite is the Marinated Chicken Sandwich, it’s said Newby’s sold the first ever Chicken Sandwiches. The same one since 1975, way before Dave Thomas!
