We went on Sunday thinking we would catch the duo singing at 6. Doors opened at 5 so we got there at 4:30, to a huge line! We did not make it in for the performance since it only seats 100. We then had to decide if we should stay in line and wait until the doors opened again at... read more

A famous place for fabulous music, not .for phenomenal food. I should have headed the reviews, especially those found elsewhere. I am not sure how it is possible to be so consistently contrastive and not change? My whole party was sick from the food, but still happy that we went to support the music scene. Just buy drinks.

Very inviting, not a bad view in the house. Entertainment was amazing. The host/owner was present and didn't hesitate to chatter with patrons and make us feel at home.

If you don't have reservations , expect a wait and unless your in the front of the line, don't expect to get in We were 27,28 in line and were the last two to get in! We also were separated, but it was ok. I was so close , I could have knocked down his guitar. It was a very... More

Arrived at this Popular Nashville club to see the open mike night for country music, however was too late to get in as the venue is suprisingly small so decided to tough it and wait in line for the professional show starting later in the evening. The early evening heat was just about bearable and we took turns of piece... More

Worth the Sunday night line in the heat. Music was incredible, food great and it is a must see. Sunday is Songwriter night...can't get tickets in advance. Need to be there a minimum of an hour in advance Even if you don't like country music this is a must do

We had a great meal, fried chicken! We heard 2 song writers play their original songs that they had written for people like Sara Evans. They were both good singers and song writers. It is a small venue but pretty cool if you can get in!

Let me preface this with the fact that we have gone to The Bluebird many times, for open mic night and for concerts. It has been a few years, but when I brought a group of friends with us to Nashville, I said "We that have to go to The Bluebird!" We checked the website, called (actually got in touch... More

The atmosphere is great and the fact it's a listen room is brilliant. It doesnt cost much but it's definitely worth it. There are some great and upcoming song writers that perform approximately two hours of amazing songs. The food isn't the best but it's all worth it. It's a must if you are in Nashville but you must book... More

I didn't realize how lucky I was to get tickets online before we left for our trip. This place is highly sought after for entertainment. When we arrived there was a long line of people hoping there would be a spot for them inside. I believe only 5 spots were available.
