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. « less

If you appreciate the artists that create the music and learning about their roots and their dreams you owe it to yourself to go to Bluebird. An intimate setting, great service and a unique evening indeed.

I really wanted to go to the Bluebird Cafe on my recent visit, but could not get a reservation. I watch the tv show Nashville and wanted to see the famous songwriter/ artist performances .I was able to get in for the late show to watch a folk trio. The place is packed every night. It is a must see... More

Love the bluebird café. The staff was friendly and met a lot of nice people. only complaint was uts stressful trying to get tickets on line as there are so many seats. And the parking. So glad we got in. seats sold out in 10 min. That's how good it is.

On a road trip across the south my friend and I stopped in Nashville for 2 days. We were only 5 mins away from Bluebird Cafe at our apartment and thought we'd give it a go after reading reviews. After seeing the queue from just before 4 for the 6 o'clock show we jumped in but got the feeling from... More

We have been to the Bluebird twice before and actually planned a Savannah-Nashville-St Louis trip around an evening at the Bluebird. We carefully studied the reservation system and got online before 8 a.m. one week before our date. At 8:04 I received a message that the performance was sold out but that some tickets might be available first come first... More

Have attended a writer/singer performance before, this was a much different venue. Small strip mall located in the shopping area near Vandy Campus. A line had formed when we arrived at 510pm. I had got access via the web so we were able to skip the maybe get a spot the waiting in line offers. Although the venue was free,... More

The first night we didn't know the process and we waited about an hour outside in the 95 degree sunlight. But the music was SO good we went back two nights later but got there TWO hours early and were #'s 13 & 14 in line. They only guarantee 10 spots without reservations but sometimes can fit in more. We... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Nashville. It is a small place and you get to hear some excellent country songwriters and the occasional guest singer or celeb singer. We went to a IN the Round where 4 songwriters take turns talking and playing. All were excellent. My only regret is that I did not get a reservation... More

If your in the Nashville area you need to go to the Bluebird! The musicians the night we went were fantastic and altogether the atmosphere was very authentic. We enjoyed the music, laughed a lot, and heard some great stories from all the musicians. Highly recommended!

While in Nashville, the wife and I attended the Bluebird to see artists play and sing their original songs. You can make reservations on line but the booking process is somewhat difficult. The night we attended, we saw a total of 8 artists and only paid $10.00 cover charge per person. It was very nice. The place is very small... More
