Memphis’s Absinthe Room
When you take the mysterious stairwell from King’s Palace Cafe to the Absinthe Room, it’s almost like stepping back in time to 19th-century Paris. You’ll see beautiful, ornate absinthe fountains used to dispense water into glasses holding the “green muse” and art nouveau posters. But luckily today, you don’t have to worry about the ill effects that old-school absinthe caused for the artistic elite in France in the 1800s. Instead, you can enjoy your classy tipple over a game of pool or darts against the backdrop of jukebox tunes.
