Impala + Bar DKDC

Impala + Bar DKDC

964 South Cooper in the Cooper Young Hood
Memphis, TN  38104 Map

Impala. A rumbling guitar, a honking sax, the type of drumbeat that liberated strippers from their spangled costumes, and a steeped-in-Memphis tradition bass line. The kind of nervous energy that could propel a sensible Catholic schoolgirl into the arms of a dangerous man, make a sailor catapult off the mast into a stormy sea, or cause a veteran gunslinger to fire madly into the air before plunging over a rocky cliff. The 'party now, because we're gonna pay later' attitude that pervades the Southern consciousness, from Tennessee Williams' plays to Jerry Lawler's ringside antics.

When Impala surfaced on the Memphis garage scene in the 1990's local audiences hardly knew what hit them. The group built a sonic time machine that, once you paid the cover charge and crawled on board, might deposit you in 1955, 1967, or 2239. With just one song, they could turn gritty, dumpy Barristers into West Memphis' time-honored Plantation Inn, the home of their musical ancestors like the Mar-Keys, the Pac-Keys, and the Royal Spades. Another tune would drop you into Ennio Morricone's wasteland desert scapes; still another would transport you to a New Orleans whorehouse, on a magical night when all the girls were turning tricks for free.
Cram this Clark Kentish quartet into a phone booth – or more likely,pour an alcoholic elixir down their throats – and somehow, Impala emerged growling. In those early days, the all-instrumental group was the joyful yin to the Oblivians' furious yang. Frantic, yes, angry, no – just hellbent on having a damn good time. Light bulbs were dimmed, or broken out, as hot chicks stood atop barstools, aiming flashlights at the stage. We danced, we drank, and we partied down Memphis-style, gorging on beer and groping each other until our eyes glazed over, our guts gave out, or both.
YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO..... JUST BE HERE.

Charlie Hunter and Lucy Woodward are known for excelling in different genres, yet the two veteran musicians have been running in similar circles before pairing up for touring in 2018. With a career spanning 16 years and almost 20 albums, virtuoso guitarist Charlie Hunter has worked with the likes of Norah Jones, Mos Def, John Mayer, and D’Angelo. He is widely considered the authority on the seven and eight – string guitar and continues to stun audiences with his ability to simultaneously bust out tasty bass parts, melodic leads and swinging rhythms. Lucy Woodward has been blazing her own path since the 2003 release of her Top 40 radio hit “Dumb Girls”. Not settling for the pop industry standards, she later released albums on the legendary jazz Verve label and on Snarky Puppy label, GroundUP Music, after much collaboration with the band. She has sung live with with Pink Martini and WDR Big Band and has sung background vocals for icons such as Rod Stewart, Celine Dion, and Barbra Streisand. Charlie and Lucy toured much of 2018 and rounded with a drummer, they recorded an album based on pocket-heavy renditions of vintage pop and classic standards ranging from Blind Willie Johnson to Terence Trent D’Arby to Nina Simone (2019 release)....

ABOUT

DKDC

At BAR DKDC, we’ve paired Chef Karen Carrier’s eclectic tastes with the essence of local cuisines — international street food. The soul of the street, Our menu of small plates reads like an global backpacker’s food diary. Oaxacan Mexican to Shashlik from Israel. Spanish Tapas to the spices of the Caribbean. Plus, we change it up every five weeks. Relax in our intimate space with textiles from India, masks from Cuernavaca and Taxco, furnishings from our own Southern Delta, and music from all of the above.

Order a cocktail that matches the mood and travel with us.

It was a chance encounter in the restroom of a trendy New York City Bar. A struggling art student mentioned her love of cooking and lack of money. The other woman was a caterer in need of workers. The two exchanged names and Chef Karen Carrier never returned to graduate school. Instead she has enjoyed a varied career in food and has never regretted her decision to swap palette for palate.

Like all good southerners, she eventually returned home to Memphis in 1987 to start a family and plant the seeds for a restaurant empire.

KAREN CARRIER

Carrier launched Another Roadside Attraction Catering, the stunning revival of downtown Memphis with Automatic Slims Tonga Club (which she sold in 2008), The Beauty Shop Restaurant, Do Sushi, Noodle Doodle do, The Mollie Fontaine Lounge and her newest venture—Bar-DKDC Social Club.

Critics have applied descriptors like daring, exuberant, eclectic and risk-taking to her restaurant ventures – words that apply equally well to the fanciful fusion food, the funky décor and chef—owner Karen Carrier. Her ambitious cooking combines big Southern and international flavors—it’s what Food & Wine described as “in your face” cooking: imaginative, well-prepared, and full of surprises.
