This is an iconic venue in Nashville and we had a great time. Our table was right by the artists and we really felt we were just hanging out with them while they played. A great stop in Nashville.

To escape the blaring honky-tonk sound and atmosphere of lower Broadway, the Bluebird Cafe is non-smoking and thankfully speaker-free music. You will not have a speaker three-feet from your face. Heads up though that in addition to a $15 cover charge and $3 service charge...More

We were so excited to tickets. Overall we enjoyed the experience. We wished it was a bit more upbeat because we started to fade near the end but we enjoyed most of the artists. I agree with the other reviews that say skip the food....More
