Plenty of bars and grills with live music with tacky souvineer shops sprinkled in along Broadway. If you visit Nashville and enjoy live country or honky tonk music, this is a must do (similar to Beale Street in Memphis). Spend an afternoon or evening taking in some live music in a lively atmosphere. Unique experience. Just do it

The convention center was at a reduced price of $15. That was good if you were in a hotel close by and wanted ro walk. But very... More

We stayed in downtown Nashville and there is so much going on. The bars/restaurants (most of them) have live music starting at 11 am and going until 2 or 3 am. With the exception of some shopping and restaurants (which are only a short Uber ride away), everything was within walking distance.

We had both children and adults in our party. We started at 3:30pm and was able to hear live music and enjoy the scenery before things got too crazy.

Downtown Nashville is a huge PARTY!! No matter which direction you go there is a great place to dance, drink, eat and kick your heels up! The atmosphere varies from neighborhood to neighborhood. The Gulch is much like Bourbon Street and Midtown has a Manhattan kind of feel. 12South is a great place for the hipster crowd. (Shout out to... More

Most bars allow kids till 6 so the whole family can enjoy live country music the way it was ment to be heard. So many places to eat at and places to visit. Jacks os my favorite BBQ then over to the Stage for some good music. All bars are no smoking inside so breath easy!

Downtown Nashville is great. There are a ton of options for food and drinks, plus there is always live music at the bars Broadway, regardless of the time of day. Do be aware that it is very touristy and filled with bachelorettes.

Town was very clean and busy we were at the Music City Convention center. The staff at the center were very nice, and helpful. the only drawback was parking. Everywhere we went it was $15.00, this could get quite expensive. We did find a few places that were $15.00 but you could go and come.
