Bourbon Street bar is a fun option with reasonable prices and a great selection of blues type bands on in the evening. We went back twice!

Not sure how these places survive with $10-20 cover charges. Nearly every bar in Printers Row has a cover. Save yourself the tine and money and stick to Lower Broadway bars. It's not like you're going to find a bad singer or band in Nashville....More

Awesome little alley with a couple of great bars and an amazing history. Originally home to Nashville's Burlesque scene, Printers Alley remains home to the Bourbon Street House of Blues. Definitely an awesome place to get a slice of New Orleans in Nashville Tennessee!

We were wandering the off of broadway and found Printers alley. It’s a neat little area, remember it’s just an alley. There were 4 or 5 bars open in the afternoon with really good music. You definitely have to check it out

Now, Printer's Alley is a small alley lined with a few bars. I walked past this Alley on my way to Broadway from the Capital building and stopped at Alley Taps to catch a World Cup game. Really nothing exciting and not a whole lot...More

Not at Painter's Alley. There are a lot of gift shops on Broadway right beside all of the bars. You cant miss them
