I've been to Tootsie's multiple times in my trips to Nashville, and it never fails. Even the location out the the airport has great food, tasty drinks, and live music. There are literally 3 floors of music. Everyone I've talked to who has also been to Tootsies agrees, if you don't enjoy the music on one floor, go to another... More

I was only visiting Nashville for the night and ended up at Tootsies for about an hour. Every floor has live music! Great vibes here. It gets packed though, don't expect to move very much!

This package has a good atmosphere. A lot of good live music and history. It is a dive though (as many of my favorite places are) but the beers are insanely expensive. 7$ for a PBR? The music is what saves it.

My wife and I went to all the joints on Broadway over a long weekend and Tootsies stood out as the best by far to us. The talent was amazing from 1pm on a Sunday to primetime on Saturday night. There are three levels so while we mainly were on the first floor, the third floor was rocking Saturday night... More

After paying 17$ to park, we should have expected it, but wanted to check out Nashville anyway. Stopped in for a brew on a hot July day and listen to some music. They have several floors with live music on each floor. We ordered 2 bottles of Corona & the bill was 14$. We did love the group playing though.... More

Since it has some history with the Ryman and the Grand Ole Opry, I am glad I went to see it, but once is enough. The place is kind of a hole in the wall with the most expensive beers in Nashville. I guess you are paying for the history and the ambiance.

We ended our night at Tootsies after going to all of the bars on the strip, and we had a really fun time! Everyone was much more into the music here than many of the other bars, probably because it was really good!!

Went in on a Saturday afternoon, the band they had playing was amazing. What great talent!! The Orchid Lounge had great atmosphere and everyone seemed to be having an amazing time! I would definitely visit here next time I'm in town.
