Went into this bar and loved the band that was playing. Very cool to look around and see all of the photos on the wall and see all of the history behind this place. Just had to stop in while visiting Nashville! Good drinks and good music!

Stopped by on a Saturday night around 10pm and waited in line to get in. The place is a complete dump and the first floor is so tight you can hardly walk through. The second floor is not much better. We proceeded to the third floor and the place was packed and a band was playing. My friends were able... More

Yes, it's crowded but that's because the bands on all 3 floors are awesome and everyone is having a great time! Third floor has tons more space and open air. We enjoyed this Nashville icon!
