Photos: Memphis remembers Silky Sullivan

Beale Street icon Silky Sullivan will be missed. One of the most well-known bar owners in Memphis’ history, Silky was a fixture at his popular downtown establishment.

Seeing Silky at Silky O’Sullivan’s was just as much a part of the experience as listening to dueling pianos, sitting on the patio, looking for the goat or drinking Beale Street’s most famous signature drink the Diver.

Here are some of the great memories of Silky shared on social media as a way to remember a Memphis legend:
