Shane Battier’s favorite Memphis bar is…

April 22, 2014 By: mike Category: Favorite Bars, Memphis

Shane BattierIf any former member of the Memphis Grizzlies could return to town, run for mayor and win, it would undoubtedly be Shane Battier.

Battier is a member of the Miami Heat, but remains a fan favorite in Memphis for his work ethic on the court and his community-minded spirit off the court. He played two stints in Memphis, from 2001 to 2006 and again in 2011.

Every so often Battier takes to Twitter and answers questions from the public. I asked him this one tonight: What’s your favorite Memphis bar?

His answer: Ernestine and Hazel’s, the former South Main brothel know for its cold beer, great jukebox and Soul Burgers.

Cheers, Shane.
