A visit to Nashville is not complete without checking Tootsies out. Fantastic music and atmosphere. I will for sure be returning on my next business trip.

Hung out on all the levels. Great opportunity to get close to the singers. Mostly country with a little bit of whatever is popular. Nice balcony to relax.

Spent a night on Broadway with some friends and had heard that Tootsies was a must do. Loved the tree levels with the three different entertainers. Cool to visit a place with so much history!

Three floors of music including an outdoor deck on the third level so there's always somewhere else to go and someone else to listen to without even leaving the building. There is also an entrance to get straight to the top of the building if you want to bypass the other levels. Not sure if it's just a Sunday night... More

Tootsies is a small building, but there are 3 or 4 floors. There was a band on each floor. The higher you climb the thinner the crowd gets, which is nice to know. The walls are decorated with lots of nastalgic pictures. Truly a place of history. However, be mindful that because it is so packed on the lower level,... More

We ended up here two nights in a row on our visit. The atmosphere is fun and energetic. The bands were excellent and we enjoyed the variety of music they played. Very crowded on the top floor and outside on the balcony but a great experience in Nashville

Very interesting. Was told that Willie Nelson rented an upstairs room at his bar, in his early days.

we had the whole third floor to ourselves at 11:00 am. The band was great and the bartenders couldn't have been nicer. As the room filled we still had excellent service and enjoyed the music as they asked for requests and played country favorites.

I read many reviews about this place stating it was crowded with so-so service and there was better places to go; got to Nashville and spoke to several locals who echoed the same opinion but we went anyways to see for ourselves. Midday saturday and the place was mobbed, which isn't a bad thing. The band was good and people... More
