Sprock ’n’ Roll — a “party bike” that offers tours of Overton Square and Cooper-Young in Midtown — is taking the party downtown. The 16-seat mobile bar allows patrons to get a workout while they drink. There are pedals under each barstool, and the bike is completely fueled by pedal power. No alcohol is sold on the bike since that’s prohibited by Tennessee law. But patrons are encouraged to bring their own booze, and the bike offers tap service for those who bring a pony keg.
Sprock ’n’ Roll launched in Midtown in June, but they’ve just added a two-hour downtown tour that starts at Tin Roof on Beale. From there, customers can customize their tour by picking three stops in the downtown area. Participating options range from Blind Bear and Bar Dog to Brass Door and the pop-up beer garden, Station 3: The Memphis Firehaus. Each stop offers drink specials to Sprock ’n’ Roll customers.
“We’re thrilled to join the downtown neighborhood,” said Sprock ’n’ Roll founder Ashley Coleman. “By building onto our Midtown market and deepening relationships with restaurants, company clients, and fans citywide, we hope to provide a fresh entertainment option to Beale.”
Sprock ’n’ Roll will be the second party bike offering tours downtown. River City Pedalers has been working solely in the downtown area since February.
Since Sprock ‘n’ Roll is moving downtown, they’re also teaming up with the Memphis Grizzlies for hour-and-a-half downtown pre-game bike tours. Those who participate will receive discounted Grizzlies tickets from November through March. Those tours will end at the FedExForum just before game time.
Grizzlies tours will be offered:
Tuesday, November 24th (vs. Dallas) Sunday, November 29th (vs. Philadelphia) Thursday, December 3rd (vs. San Antonio) Friday, December 11th (vs. Charlotte) Sunday, January 10th (vs. Boston) Tuesday, January 12th (vs. Houston) Monday, February 8th (vs. Portland) Friday, March 11th (vs. New Orleans) Monday, March 28th (vs. San Antonio)
