Went to see Hunter Phelps play and we were not disappointed. Typical bar but with great music. Can't wait to see where his career takes him!

This well known bar is a must especially on a snowy afternoon!! The music was absolutely fantastic, the atmosphere was brilliant and the nachos to die for!! As it was minus degrees outside, we holed up here for a couple of hours to enjoy the music and the food. There are lots of bars like this but loved the vibe... More

What's not to love at Tootsies? It's history is fabled...all the biggest stars in country music played here. It's current crop of amateurs is fabulous and you wonder why they're not on stage at the Opry. The patrons know their country music and appreciate the music. The drinks are expensive but there's no cover so it all works out.

Despite being SUPER busy (NHL All-Star game across the street) we got quick friendly service from JR. She was very friendly and efficient!! The food was hot and delicious! Definitely recommend the shrimp jammers!! Live music on all 3 floors and a lively environment!!

This is a famous and popular bar. It looks like quite a few locals go there, but it feels touristy. It's interesting how they have multiple bands playing on different floors; one certainly would not get bored. The crowd was made up of all ages. It was so difficult to get drinks...and this was on a Monday night in October.... More

What a great place for live music. Three floors each with its own stage and a different band live on all three. The promotional pictures on the wall say it all. You never know who might be playing or sitting next to you. there is a third floor roof deck over looking Broadway. Awesome place I'll be back.
