—Birth of the Square —

East Side
in 1969, Overton Square's founders—James D. Robinson, Jr., Ben Woodson, Charles H. Hull, Jr., and Frank Doggrell, III- developed T.G.I Friday's which became the first establishment in the city to sell alcohol by the drink.

The restaurant became an overwhelming success and evolved into over 20 restaurants, shops, an ice skating rink, and season celebrations. Memphians flocked to the area for entertainment in the heart of midtown.

South Side
In 2012 the Square's revitalization brought an historic Memphis neighborhood back from the brink. The new Overton square Performing Arts District celebrates our community Success. Learn more at OvertonSquare.com
