The building at 31 Main Street has gone through several permutations. Before it was home to Micho's, it was the Lamplight Inn, a restaurant and tavern. Micho's served a mix of Mediterranean and American food before it became Memphis on Main Street in May 2011 and started serving Memphis-style barbeque.
Memphis On Main Street fell victim to a two-alarm electrical fire on Sept. 16, 2011. The back of the building was extensively damaged and the front also slightly damaged in the fire, which started around 2:20 a.m. No one was injured.
As Micho's, the upstairs room hosted live jazz and blues music multiple times a week under the name Stage 35. The downstairs also had live music in the back and front bars often.
