What an amazing place. 3 floors of non stop music. The place where many of the Country Music legends got their start. A real hole in the wall. I talk to strangers. It touched my heart to hear the stories of the bar tenders, security guys and musicians. They have come to Nashville from all over the country chasing a... More

This place is all history. From all the pictures to the very simple attire. The music by far is the best on the row. Early mornings are a great time to check out some of the talent. I recommend this as a must on any list.

I enjoyed the music a lot at Tootsie's it was a little crowed but probably due to the fact that they have great entertainers there. Only complaint I have is the bathrooms needed a little attention but who cares when the music is that great!

Lunchtime was spent in Tootsies Orchid Lounge, more live music including a 14 year old kid who guested with the main band. Outstanding talent. Also had two girls who guested and they had to stand on the bar to sing. The heat and humidity meant the air con was on and made it freezing. Wish I had brought a jumper.... More

this place is steeped in history as the preferred bar for musicians from way back in the day. Amazing views from the roof top bar, very good service and brilliant music.

Each floor was slightly smaller than we expected which made it crowded as the evening went on. With bands on all floors it made it difficult to hear just one if you are near the stairs. That said, a good atmosphere prevails.
