About

Memphis’ newest event space, Venue 901, is located in the heart of East Memphis and ready to host your perfect party, luncheon, rehearsal dinner or corporate event.

History

Corky’s helped put Memphis on the map as a culinary destination and BBQ capital, and throughout the years our Poplar Avenue location has been at the heart of local Memphis cuisine and catering. Over time, the building next door at 5255 Poplar Ave became a part of our operations. It housed our USDA food manufacturing kitchen for grocery stores and shipping. When we outgrew it, it became our corporate headquarters and accounting office. At the same time, Corky’s had grown to become an experienced and sought after catering company, and we received lots of requests for a space to host the same parties and events where we were serving up our famous food. There are a lot of great venues in Memphis and the surrounding areas, but when we looked around East Memphis, most of the available spaces for these types of events were either a hotel conference room or a private party room in a restaurant. But here on Poplar Avenue, we were sitting on a perfect space to host catered events and parties ourselves. A space that we didn’t have to share, but instead could offer our customers a unique experience, ranging from traditional barbecues to cocktail hours and upscale events. A true Venue (for the) 901.
