Founded in 1876, A. Schwab’s is the last original business on bustling Beale Street. Inside, amongst creaky hardwood floors, an array of products from around the world puzzle and delight customers, from candy and books to clothing, arts and crafts, voodoo supplies, and more. Every time you exclaim, “that’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen,” you’ll turn around and realize you were wrong. Take a break from being a tourist at their old-fashioned soda fountain and soak in some history.~ Esquire
