“Had a blast, definately will be back”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

couldnt go much past the front door area, the band was right on top of us. The place had a great energy and the John Stone bad was very good..... The staff was helpful and attentive..it was definately the best bar experiance we had in Nashville in years..... My only regret was we didnt come into this place sooner. We was only there the last hour or so.

“Way too packed and filthy”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

I guess its good for them to be that busy, but Geez, it was a nightmare to get a drink. Came into town with buddies for Bears game, and every bar was packed, but this was ridiculous. 3 times the people as posted for capacity on wall. Scary. bathrooms are horrible. Not fun. Go during week when nobody is in town, buy your shirt, and don't touch anything.

“Great time !”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

One of the best bars in Nashville. Lots of history, excellent staff, and great music. Get there early because it fills up fast. They open at 10 am. The live music there is better than most places in Nashville.

“Nashville Tradition...you have to go to Tootsies!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

BUT I would suggest going to the back upper bar as there was a lot less people and room to sit down and enjoy yourself! The front lower bar was way too packed to enjoy your self!! It was a Saturday night though. The back bar was just as good and way more enjoyable. The only bad thing was the bathroom was downstairs up near the front craziness. This meant I had to navigate thru a sea of people to try to get to the bathroom. I literally crawled over 2 ladies to get over there and if I had been in an emergency...well it wouldn't have been good I'll tell you that. But you have to visit this Nashville staple.

“Delightfully Tacky”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Classic honky-tonk on Broadway. Great spot for people watching, enjoying music, and having a few beers. Would suggest avoiding the bar "food." Someone in our group made the mistake of ordering Loaded Nachos.
