MDN: Four-Story ‘Treble Clef’ To Be Permanent Part Of Riverfront
A four-story paddlewheel riverboat that used to be a casino pulled into the Wolf River Harbor before dawn Thursday, Dec. 8, as Memphis Riverboats Inc. prepares to renovate what is now the “Treble Clef” as a permanent part of the city’s riverfront.
“We will change the name at a later date,” said Jodie Taube, marketing and sales manager of Memphis Riverboats Inc., the company formerly known as Memphis Queen Line. “We’ll be able to house the various functions on her from dinners to dances and charity functions to weddings. We’ve been anticipating her arrival since pretty much July or August but with the water so high she was not able to get under the (Hernando DeSoto) bridge.”
Memphis Riverboats will keep its presence at Beale Street Landing in addition to the new presence at the cobblestones.
“She will remain in dock,” Taube said of the Treble Clef. “We have four other vessels that will continue to go out in the water. We’ll still have our gift shop in (Beale Street Landing) where they can come in, shop and purchase tickets for our cruises.”
The renovations to the boat will be interior and exterior.
