Nice little alley with different bars and clubs. Nice change from the Broadway strip. I stopped at Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar (had a rock band that night) and another club I didn't catch the name of with a jazz guitar / band.

A hideaway in the city of Nashville. Great place to listen to the blues! Fun to walk the back alleys of the city.

We were excited to see this sign, thinking it would a great new experience. I would guess half of the Alley is undergoing a transformation and closed. The other half businesses are hardly open and hurting.

This area has a collection of restaurants and bars with live music that are really located in some of the alleys off Broadway St. I know some of them are off Church St. Nice area that we enjoyed more than being on Broadway.

Unfortunately this is the only review of Nashville that cannot get a 5 star rating. There really isn't much along Printer's Alley other then a few bars, most of which are very run down. When I did research on Printer's Alley, it looked like it...More

To avoid the touristic bars at Broadway we went to a bar in Printer's Alley. Great music, good food and not so crowded. Great place to stay!!

Unlike Broadway, Printer's Alley does not have all the hectic hustle and bustle. It does, however, have a nice selection of bars and bands. Definitely should check it out.

This is an original area of Nashville that has some hidden gems. The Bourbon Street Boogey and Blues Bar is a must when a pperformer is there. There may be a $10 cover for many bands and expect it to be crowded on the weekends.

Hey guys! I will be in Nashville, TN in September and am planning a bachelorette party. I am wondering if printers alley is walking distance to Broadway/Music Row? I am not familiar with the area and we plan on going to the bars at night and doing more sightseeing during the day? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

You might try the Omni Nashville but it has been sometime since I was there so you might want to double check on that. Have a safe and fun trip!
