Was there just one night but I absolutely loved it. The gig there was great, the atmosphere as well and they closed around 3/4 AM which allowed us all to have plenty of fun without having to look for a different place. Would recommend.

Stopped in here while wandering down Broadway. Great place for a beer and to catch some tunes. It’s not owned by any particular country “legend” which maybe was why it has a nice cozy feel to it. You can dance in a little area by...More

We rolled in late on a Thursday evening and had a fantastic time. There was a great band with an outstanding fiddle player. The bartenders were friendly and fast. Cute merchandise to purchase too. I'd definitely like to return when I'm back in Nashville.

While walking the strip we wandered in and we had a great time...there was a great group playing and we really enjoyed listening to them.. however we didn't stay long because we had limited time and we wanted to go to several other places!

Great Bands, very friendly service, ALWAYS a great time. There were so many great bends on Broadway in Nashville when I went for the first time this December but this place really killed it every night. Some outstanding talent in stage ( my opinion ),...More

This is a fun bar on Broadway. The music was great. The prices for drinks was extremely reasonable. The bar staff was friendly. It was a good crowd on a Friday and Saturday night but not overcrowded like some places.

I frequent Nashville and haven't figured out why this spot is so popular. The only thing I liked was the upstairs balcony so I could get out of the chaos. I just wasn't as impressed with this venue. It's hyped up and doesn't quite deliver.

Went here on our first night in Nashville having discovered it by sheer chance when strolling down Broadway at about 9pm. What a chance that was as it turned out to be the best bar on the street by far. We must have sampled at...More

To add what the others wrote, it’s hard to find a good schedule of who is going to be on stage. They don’t do a very good job of updating the music lineup. BUT follow Brit on social media and ask him direct when he’s... More

There is within a block or two but it can get expensive. If you are staying at a hotel I would walk or take an uber, if you are just going for a few hours and leaving then I would just pay to park.

My personal must-dos would be the Station Inn, 3rd and Lindsley, Big Bang, Mercy Lounge and Whiskey Bent. That said, as a first-time visitor, I think each place on this list would be great to visit, especially such established (albeit crowded and maybe a bit watered down) places like Tootsies, Robert's, etc.
