Honky Tonk Lives

The District has many shops and honky tonk bars and restaurants. Many have live music. Found it very enjoyable to walk the area.

This is one of the most famous Country destinations in Nashville and you might even see a celebrity. We went on the Easter holiday and it was wall to wall people with performers in every bar. This is the ultimate time to go as there are so many performers and things to do. There is a peddle tavern that drives... More

I will admit that I was completely surprised during my first visit to Nashville. I expected an average mid size city. But this small downtown, is one of the most fun downtowns I have been to. It was lively, clean, organized and packed with people having fun. Broadway had so many bars that I lost track. And all had live... More

First of all I must state that I DON'T like country music but the music venues in downtown Nashville really are amazing. We arrived in Nashville after spending 3 nights in Memphis and experiencing the massive disappointment that is Beale Street. So what an amazing surprise when we got to Nashville's nightlife. There is an overwhelming sense of ordinary people... More

There are plenty of cool places to hang out while visiting the District in Nashville. There is BB Kings, many honky tonks and neon lights. This is what makes Nashville fun to visit.

You can't say you've been to Nashville, without a stroll through The District. Go on a weeknight, and take your time, popping into a few of the venues. Or, if you're up for a bit more chaos, go on a weekend and feel the buzz of the crowd.

Just walking the streets of "The District" you get a feeling. You can see the excitement. You can hear the music. Every honky tonk has a live performer and the music waves. The street performers just wanting an audience. Everything is alive. This is the place where dreams and memories are made.

If you love country music, this is the place to go. Countless bars and entertainment within walking distance in beautiful downtown Nashville. Great entertainers in every bar and you never know what Country Music Star you may see.

We were in town for a short time only and it was really great seeing this part of Nashville. We had seen a lot of the sights around Nashville but this really let us see the "music city" part with great sounding musicians playing every few bars for a couple hundred meters.

This was my 1st time in Nashville and we were only here for a day. We took a walk around the district and saw a lot of cool buildings. It was fun to just walk around and see everything. There are tons of restaurants and bars around here. Overall, just a nice place to go for a night out.
