Babalu opened its second Memphis restaurant in 2017. While the original Overton Square location pays homage to a bygone era in Memphis history, Memphis East has a more modern industrial personality, but with the same Babalu flair. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy the mild Southern climate on the large open air patio or pull up a chair and sip a handcrafted cocktail at the indoor/outdoor bar. Babalu East also also introduced Memphis to the chef’s table — a reservation only table that seats six and allows guests an unobscured view of the kitchen and a chance to interact with the chefs. With numerous retail and business locations within close proximity, Babalu East is sure to become a popular spot for lunch breaks, after work cocktails, family hangouts, or date night.
