Dive bar, lots of fun

To be honest, I give this place 4 stars because of its history and because I had fun. The truth is, it is dirty and crowded -- but -- if you are looking for a genuine honky tonk... read more

We didnt get past the first, and later found out that there was 2 to go. A must for Nashville. Friendly crowd and staff. Don't forget to tip the band - its how they're paid in Nashville.

This is another of the many great bars in downtown Nashville. We went up and down to each of the floors. The rooftop bar was nice, but given it was a beautiful sunny day, there was no tables available at the time. We spotted a table on the second floor and had some great Long Island Iced Teas (no extra... More

Lots of fun especially if your young. Three floors of music and drinking. Third floor is great because ther is an outdoor patio overlooking Broadway. Music is good, drinks ok but it gets very crowded. Much better for the younger crowd but it is a must if you visit Nashville.

Hilarious..! Singing and dancing on the bar with the beer flowing..! Tourists made welcome and music and songs blaring..! Fantastic night out after watching Nashvilles ice hockey game. A definite place to visit.

3 levels of bands. Nice rooftop bar. Lunch was pretty good. Daiquiri's are $9. Small piece of pizza is $5.95. Didn't order either of these lol. Went back in the evening and there was a bathroom attendant in the ladies room who had tons of products to use.

Went downtown to Tootsies and went up to the rooftop bar. Music was great and service was awesome. Drinks and food was what you would expect for this type of establishment. Nice view of street and the goings on of the area.

We started off our Nashville experience here and it set the bar kind of high. Great place for close intimate live music without feeling on top of each other. Friendly staff and super musicians made this an awesome experience.

I can tell you, I hated my hangover but that's about the only thing I didn't like about Tootsie's. We went to Tootsie's in the afternoon to listen to the band and have a few drinks. The man next to us was very nice and Tootsie's encouraged patrons to talk to each other with the way it is set up.... More

Great stop if you are a tourist. Pretty much what you expect. A big crowd, hot inside, over priced beer and have to put up with some people who were over served, but still was a lot of fun. Great place to see different bands. If I return to the Nash, I will be back.
