3 floors, 3 bands! Everyone is friendly and fun! Bands will play any song you request for $20. This is the place to be! Great casual bar with dancing!

We had a great time. We were out as a business group and just stayed a little while. The band was great and play across a number of different styles of music. They do come by and beg... suggest real hard for tips. We knew that going in so not a surprise. There roof top here was great.

Fascinating entertainment venue with 3 floors, each having good bands. Loved the rooftop area as well with a nice view of the city. Beers were priced less than other places on the strip. Enthusiastic crowd, mostly younger on the top level.

A Nashville stopping place! Was suggested by a friend so we tried it. Drinks VERY expensive $15.00 for a rail vodka/cranberry and 1 Coors Light. Fun bar! Entertainers really work the crowd as they say " we work for tips". That and the price of drinks lowered their rating. Otherwise a 5 star place !

This place is legendary and most of the who's who have either been discovered or played here. It has 3 levels and a roof bar. The bands are really good and the atmosphere is fantastic. It runs a queue if you get there after 9PM, and it's definitely worth the wait. No trip to Nashville is complete without at least... More

Stopped in here mid afternoon, what a fun place, of course you have live music and the staff were all excellent. Bartenders were quick to get your drinks and make sure you were taken care of. When in Nashville, stop by and check it out!

Stopped here at 9:45 am looking for someplace open. What a blast. Band we setting up and we stayed for 3-1/2 hours. Get there early in the day cause this place packs them in throughout the day. We returned later in the day to a every floor being stuffed with a bunch of drunk kids. Lol. Nevertheless a great place... More
