We were really glad we could go somewhere Christmas night and enjoy some music. The band was amazing, the singers were pretty good. We had a pleasant surpise of seeing Bart Walker from the Royal Southern Brotherhood playing with the band! had a good time here!

B.B. King's Blues club was open with reservation on Christmas night, when most places were closed. Thank y'all for being open! The food was delicious...especially the Chicken Fried Chicken, Mac-n-cheese, cornbread and desert. The live music had us clapping, tapping our feet and singing along.

We visited with adults and teens. It is one of the places downtown that allow under 21 year old before 9 pm. The music was hot, the dancing was fun. The menu had its hit and misses. (Grilled cheese was a miss, but the meatloaf was very good). We would definitely go back again

We were seated at a 4 person table with nothing to celebrate the new year with. We asked several times and were told they would get them to us... More

I plan to review BB King's and Bourbon St today...here's why. We used to love BB King's. Great place to go on a nice Saturday or Sunday afternoon, walk around downtown Nashville, have a good lunch, maybe a drink and listen to some blues. Great for evening Bday celebrations too! Last year they remodeled and their prices went up. Ok... More

We arrived around 5:45 and approached the host stand where we encountered a "snarky" lady who told us there was a 45 minute wait for a table. I found this odd since a third of the tables were open. Ms. Snarky told us to stand in the bar area, but "don't sit at any open tables in the bar area."... More

I don't even know where to start, but I believe BB King is rolling over in his grave! We should have known better from the beginning when attempting to order a drink to have a souvenir glass. We were told, after the drinks came out that there were no souvenir glasses and hadn't had them for at least 2 months.... More
