I have always heard about the Blue Bird Cafe and always wondered what it would be like to actually go and listen to all the natural talent that goes through that kind of place. My wife and I went on a Monday open mic night and was blown away at all the amazing natural talent that embodied that room. The... More

Learning how to try to get tickets to the Bluebird is a challenge. We had a lady at our table who said she used 4 internet devices at the same time to try to get tickets. She was from Nashville, she knows the system. I had a friend help me. Wish they weren't so hard to get, but I guess... More

A friend and I went on a Saturday night. We had called about a week prior to make reservations but they were full- so tip one- call way ahead if possible. We were advised to get there at 3 PM to wait in line but they did not open until 530 PM. We got there at 4 PM and there... More

Watched a Saturday night show in the round and it was everything one would expect from this iconic live music venue. Go to the Bluebird's website, learn how to get your online tickets, and then do everything possible to be at your computer when the ticket window opens. You will not be disappointed! The small, intimate size of the Bluebird... More

True to its legacy, the bluebird is special and intimate setting. The heart and soul behind the songs starts here in the round. Get tickets early on line. Don't miss out! And always buy the artists cd's!

I tried to buy a ticket online, but they were sold out! Went early to get in line for a chance at the 20 open seats. We waited inline for an hour and a half. A guy came out at 8:30 pm and said that they only had 11 spots for that night. We were talking with the people in... More

My husband and I love going to the Bluebird Cafe. It's always a good time. The entertainment is top notch. The folks at the show are soulful and talented songwriters. The food is good and the prices are not bad. I love to order the chicken quesadilla. Yum! Order extra salsa on the side if you get that. I prefer... More

Good music and part of the night life scene on Broadway in Nashville. You can roll from one club to another and never miss a beat.

The Bluebird Cafe has seen many renowned artists come through it doors and it was a recommended not to miss spot on our Nashville visit. Not knowing what to expect we thankfully did research ahead of time. Booked a Saturday evening show online when tickets opened for sale the Monday prior. The online ticketing system uses a queue to determine... More

The Bluebird Café was high on our list of must-dos in Nashville. We followed the online booking system - for a Wednesday night you can book online a week in advance. We were fortunate that Ilse DeLange was playing on our first night in Nashville. We have known her music for a while and it was great to see her... More
