"The Bluebird Cafe is one of the world's preeminent listening rooms and has gained worldwide recognition as a songwriter's performance space where the "heroes behind the hits" perform their own songs; songs that have been recorded by chart-topping artists in all genres of music. Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the tiny 85 seat venue is unassuming in appearance but some of the most significant songwriters and artists have performed on this stage.

Wonderful small music venue-we enjoyed the singer/songwriters performance. They were very open and friendly after the show, and took time to chat and take photos. The food was fine- fairly limited menu. Drink selection was good. Because it is so small, you need to go on their website ahead of your visit and follow directions to get tickets, which tend...

I didn't eat here, but came for the live music - what a cool little spot. This is a truly intimate setting, but it's very hard to get into. I lucked out one night. I'd love to give an excellent, but the difficulty of getting in and also getting rushed out because of the next show holds me back. I... More

This was my second time to the Bluebird and it was just as good as the first! This time we went to the later show. Even though we were not familiar with the writers listed to perform as soon as they started singing we knew their songs! It's such a neat experience to see the people behind the hits and... More

We hade a fantastic evening. We were there for the 9 pm show. I wanted to visit the Bleubird Cafe after watching the show Nashville. The music was fantastic and the overall experience is one that should not be missed. The atmosphere is very laid back and relaxed. A visit here is an absolute must if you ever visit Nashville

I wanted to come here because of the show Nashville. It's different from the show, but for the better! The musicians were incredibly talented, and they had all co-written some classics, so we knew a lot of the songs. Afterward, the musicians all signed posters/t-shirts and couldn't have been friendlier!! Highly recommend this!!!

We had such a beautiful evening here! We didn't have tickets so we arrived for the 6p show around 3:45p (doors open at 5p) to try and snag general admission spots (they say 15-20). We were 14th in line but were able to get 2 of the 10 available spots at the bar when the doors opened (those under 21... More

This was a fun night. We practically sat onvtop of the musician s and really felt like a small audience. We went on a tuesdsy night and heard 4 songwriters in the round playing their original songs. Most should be on the raduo. This was one of my favorite nights make a reservation in advance. Its essy. ..

This was a wonderful experience. It is a small intimate venue. You go and see singer-songwriter's sing for about 2 hours. We saw 4 of them in the round. You really need reservations. They do have standby but only room for about 15 people that way. You do have a minimum $7 food or beverage cover per person too. Be... More

We have wanted to visit since we began watching the television series 'Nashville'. It didn't disappoint. It was hard to get tickets but between my husband and I both trying we got in. I do highly recommend that you have reservations. We did not eat there but the food did look really good!
