Spent last weekend in Nashville with my daughter. We enjoyed The Listening Room cafe so much on Friday night that we came back on Saturday! Great entertainment & super friendly staff. Dallas was our server and he was great. Highly recommend this place!

There are so many places to experience music in Nashville… The honky-tonks and if not in a “Covid” experience… There’s the big venues but since we were still wearing masks and social distancing the mega venues were not available. Given our circumstances…the Listening room café was our favorite venue to really experience songwriters and their music! Honky-tonks are fun (and loud) and so hard to really feel a songwriter in their element. Since the bluebird Café made famous (to the masses) by the TV show Nashville was closed we were lucky enough to have had the listening room café experience. So inexpensive, only five dollars per person plus a minimal food and beverage charge. Don’t miss it if you happen to be in Nashville anytime soon.

We originally stopped here just to eat not knowing what was behind the closed doors. The hostess asked if we wanted to see the show. For only $7 a ticket and $15 food and drink minimum each it seemed like a win-win. We were so surprised at what we experienced. The food was OK but the talent on stage was mind boggling. You don't have to be a country fan to love this. Story telling, raw talent, and cool atmosphere this can't be beat! Check it out!

Visiting during Covid in early July, most concerts had been cancelled and most venues were still closed. Plus we were traveling with our teenage daughters and weren't comfortable taking them into a bar. The Listening Room turned out to be a great experience. Reserving tickets online was easy with the schedule published several weeks in advance. Pulling up to the building we were not impressed. The area looked somewhat run down and dead (especially on a Monday night). But we felt much better once we went inside. The staff were very friendly in getting us seated and explaining how to access the virtual menu. The food turned out to be much better than expected, especially the signature sandwich which is featured in "Southern Living", the chicken and the seasoned fries. Loved the slightly sweet seasoning on the fries, I would buy that spice mix if they were selling it. Since we enjoyed the food, spending a minimum of 15 dollars per person did not seem like a waste. Our waitress was great and managed to attend to us frequently without being a disturbance. We were treated to a 90 minute show by songwriters Judy Paster, Bill White and Bill diLuigi who presented a number of heartfelt songs with plenty of funny stories about their personal experiences in the Nashville music industry. They called on a friend in the audience to come on stage and share one of his songs. Being so close to the artists on the stage felt very special. We really connected and were uplifted by the inspirational songs that closed the show. We enjoyed the more quiet venue, which allowed us to actually focus on the music and lyrics. Afterwards the artists were happy to stick around to talk and take pictures. Overall, highly recommend and would definitely go again. Only negative: the parking. Valet parking is required which wasn't a problem to us since it's very cheap ( only 3 dollars) After the show, you pick up your keys from the hostess. We were confused about where our car was parked and once we found it in front of the venue, we were pestered by a homeless man blocking our way, hovering right next to the driver's side door. The realities of any downtown area is beyond the control of the Listening Room, but I feel that if you pay for valet parking, your car should be in a safe place and should be brought back to you at the end of the night. That is the whole point of valet parking to me.
