"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.

Get your reservations one week ahead at 8 am on the dot. This will let you avoid waiting in line in the weather. We sat at the back of table 11. View was great. Tickets are basically free. There is a nominal fee to cover the website costs. There was also a $7.00 minimum for the early show we attended.... More

If you do nothing else in Nashville, this is the thing to do. It's really hard to get reservations for the weekend shows, so read the directions on the cafe website and be prepared to have multiple devices waiting to try for tickets. We saw 4 songwriters in the round and it was so intimate and special. The music was... More

Seeing a show at the Bluebird Cafe was the highlight of my trip to Nashville! I loved the cozy atmosphere, the good food, and the AMAZING music! To be in a place where so many famous people had preformed was an experience I will never forget. If you can, get a reservation to a show at the Bluebird because the... More

Get there early to save a spot if you don't have reservations! They only allow a few couple people without reservations at the time.

We spent 8 nights in Nashville as part of a tour. As huge fans of the show "Nashville", we just had to see the Bluebird. It was a huge disappointment. The Bluebird is not even close to the awesome music venues in Nashville with great food, drinks and fabulous acts. Food in the Bluebird was awful, people were grouchy after... More

The writing is on the walls here at the Bluebird. Now featured on ABC's Nashville...this place was packed! Recommend checking out their website for reservations. Also, they have cool t-shirts and memorable souvenirs to remind you of your trip. Well worth the visit!

This is the best way to see anyone preform. Just set back and enjoy the sounds from true artist as they play their songs. I will be making this a stop every time I am in town.

Was able to get back-to-back reservations for Wed 7/22 & Thurs 7/23, both "runs" were excellent and the atmosphere and venue are truly remarkable. It is all that it is cracked up to be. The collection of singer/songwriters was perfect with genuine friendliness and comraderie from the most experienced down. The stories and conversation about the songs and life experiences... More

We waited in line for almost 2 hours and it was well worth it. We can now check another item off of our bucket list.
