"The Bluebird Cafe is one of the world's preeminent listening rooms and has gained worldwide recognition as a songwriter's performance space where the "heroes behind the hits" perform their own songs; songs that have been recorded by chart-topping artists in all genres of music. Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the tiny 85 seat venue is unassuming in appearance but some of the most significant songwriters and artists have performed on this stage.

Definitely check out the Bluebird whenever you're in Nashville!! I'd recommend buying tickets ahead - go online as soon as they go on sale to ensure that. It's worth the small time dedication to get them and make sure you can get in! It's really cool inside and the songwriters there are amazing. Great night of music. Ps. We just... More

My daughter's favorite part of the trip. You might be surprised where it is located, but you will be blown away by the experience. We kept checking every day, and we were able to get tickets.

Before you arrive in Nashville, and really want to visit ALL of the places the excited NASHVILLE television show invites us to on our screen, please know, the BlueBird Cafe is out of town, and in a strip mall. That said, if you have transportation - GET TICKETS!! Go on their site, order your tickets and you will love the... More

One of my favorite places to be. Visited 3 yrs ago and I still miss it! A real show, songwriters singing their lyrics. Employees are so social and kind. Buy a shirt! See you soon,

We waited in line to get in because we were not able to get reservations. We were able to get in and there was no cover charge! It was well organized and the service was great! We sat at the bar and didn't want for anything! The music was great! Everything was wonderful! Just like on the show Nashville!

We went on the 3rd but booked a reservation the week before to get a good table right in front of the music performance for the 9pm showcase. Doors opened at 8:30pm and we paid the $15 cover per person and were escorted to our table. They had a good drink menu and some tasty dishes to order. We just... More

I am not a country music fan and I have never watched the show Nashville. My wife and daughter wanted to go to the Bluebird so I went along. We went on a Thursday night to the early show. We did not have reservations. We arrived at 3pm and the doors opened at 5pm. We parked in the lot in... More

After watching the hit show Nashville, we were very excited to experience The Bluebird Cafe. It is a very small place that requires you to buy tickets a week in advance. The gentleman who was the main act was not very good. The bright spot in our experience was the food and the service that the staff provided. We would... More

We had a group of 8 that was able to get tickets for a late session. We were able to sit just a couple feet from songwriters and musicians performing what felt like a semi-private jam session. Has great food and cold beer as well. A must see destination for country music aficionados!
