We were really looking forward to coming here after everything we had heard. Turned out to be a waste of time - the crowd was talking so loud while the band was playing all you could hear was an occasional banjo string... Unfortunately, until they get the crowd to be respectful of the music its not worth the time.

Sunday is a jam session night with local artists joining a circle of fiddle players, banjo pickers, and guitar/mandolin strummers. The result is some fantastic music. And the best part? There is no cover charge! Food? Pizza, hot dogs and nachos. Beverage? Beer. Ambience? Priceless. Folding tables and chairs. You WILL talk to the folks around you. This place is... More

I was kind of bummed that they didn't have bluegrass the night that I was there, but we still had a nice time listening to a fabulous band. As others have said, be sure to get there early. If you don't, you might be able to make it in for the second set, a lot of people left after the... More

This is the place to go to hear Bluegrass in Nashville. It is a tightly packed intimate room with some of the best Bluegrass musicians that I've ever heard. It's a super casual in the round bluegrass jam on Sunday nights. Do not go for dinner -mostly what looked like frozen pizza – but that's not what they're there for.... More

We went to the Sunday Jam session. (free) How enjoyable. Musicians came together in a very casual way and played.Great music. Not a sophisticated place but super glad we went!

Make time to visit Station Inn and be sure to get in early. It is not the most glamorous building from the outside but this does give it more charm and makes it easy to recognise when cruising the streets. Once in, make sure you grab a table and settle in. Be prepared for the drove of people to follow... More

With all the other recent developments Nashville appears to be booming and downtown at the weekend was heaving. So nice to visit the Station Inn for the Sunday bluegrass jam session and see it hasn't changed. Great music and relaxing friendly atmosphere.

I couldn't ask for better music - we went on a Monday night, when Carl Jackson, Larry Cordle and friends - it started at 9 pm or about that time, and ended at 11:15 - and could have gone on for longer. These singers and players - fiddle, two guitars, electric guitar, piano, bass, and even drum (played unobtrusively but... More

This is a find for anybody with even a slight interest for roots music. The place looks a bit out-of-place as the whole Gulsch area seems to be in the middle of a complete revamp. The inside offers an eclectic mix of different tables and chairs close to the small stage. The bar in the back serves drinks and snacks.... More

Don't go by the appearance of this club because it is rather rustic. But what a fun place to go if you like Blue Grass music. The group playing that evening was Barefoot Movement and they were amazing! The cover charge was $12.00 but worth every penny. Get there early so you can get a good seat. The place also... More
