Paradox Underground is an exclusive dining club, a sort of culinary speakeasy in Memphis that offers dining experiences of a lifetime. For just one night they transform a seemingly obscure location in the city into a unique event venue where Chef Jimmy Gentry along with his Paradox team, serve five masterfully created courses that are paired with the perfect libations. The menu and location of each event remain undisclosed until 48 hours prior to the dinner, ticket holders will then receive an email or text revealing all the final details. Each event promises the chance to eat, drink, and mingle at a place where no one has dined before and may never get the chance to again.
