Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the 100 seat venue is unassuming in appearance but some of the most significant songwriters and artists have performed on this stage. « less

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

My Mother and I visited Bluebird cafe in our trip to Nashville. We waited in line a total if four hours to get in. And although we waited quite awhile, we made two new, incredible friends who turned out to be incredible musicians. Although the food is not necessarily the greatest I've ever tasted it was decent, although I do... More

The musicians are hit and miss as some are good and others are clearly not up to the level of performing in public. It was still a worthwhile experience but next time I would find a local restaurant or bar to listen to music as there is live music everywhere in this city.

A friend recommended the Bluebird Cafe to me and I am so glad I went. We saw an incredible blues band, I left feeling on such a high. I would visit this place over and over again and will be recommending to everyone. Worth the trip to Nashville just for this.

Don't let the outside of the Bluebird fool you. It is worth the trip to experience this place. One never knows who will just drop in to sing a song with the group of the night. Tables can be reserved, however we had better seats (closer to the performers) than most of the reserved tables. $12 cover, $7 min food... More

I didn't get to go inside the bluebird but it was cool to see where my favorite TV show Nashville was filmed. I would definitely like to go inside and see the inside of it. It was great though seeing it.

Songwriters night/first come, first serve night: We arrived at 3:30 for 6:00pm show and the line was already ~50 people deep. You have to go early! They will only let in ~90 people but if you want a table you need to be first 50-60 people in line. The wait was well worth it. Very intimate setting with friendly staff.... More

We were lucky enough to get tickets to the Friday night show (they sell out within minutes of going on line) but we also lined up for the early show. There is only 25 seats available at the door so you need to get there early for when doors open at 5.30pm. We got there at 4.15pm and were 18... More

We went on a Sunday night when the only shows they had were "first come first served" (meaning there were no tickets, you had to go wait in line. We went to the 6:00 show, which doors opened at 5:00. We arrived at 4:00, and there was a long line! The staff kept coming out to count, and inform us... More

If you want to get into the Bluebird you MUST buy tickets prior to the event. However, they only release 20 tickets for purchase, so it can be hard to get them. My husband and I saw a show "In the Round" and our seats were literally 2 inches from the musicians. It was a great live performance. Tickets to... More
