There is so much hype about Tootsie's but it absolutely does not live up to it. I'm sure at one time it was a cool place. Now it is just another overpriced and dirty bar.

Ducked in when the bottom dropped out and ended up staying even after the rain stopped. There was a band on every floor and the views were great from the roof. Bartenders were cool and helpful. Had a really good atmosphere and I’d go back anytime.

We came to Nashville for the first time last year and visited Tootsie’s and had to come back again this year.
Tootsies would serve as a place the musicians would go before, during and after shows at The Ryman Theater as they didn’t have a ”green room”.
Lots of history here from all the famous autographed photos of music legends all over the walls on 3 levels.
There’s always a great live band playing on each level.
There’s also a rooftop to enjoy the views of Broadway street below.
Tootsies is a must stop when visiting Nashville.

Extremely crowded bar/restaurant with live music in three different floors. When we were there you could hardly move through the place. It was packed with young adults enjoying live country music and adult beverages in the the early afternoon hours. All in all, a FUN place to visit and check out all the women or men.

I went mid afternoon and of course it was packed. It’s nashville. Had to sit outside. Did have umbrella but it was still 100 degrees. Food was good. Service was okay. They were busy so pretty much what I expected. If you can’t handle the party people it’s not a place for you. But I enjoy people watching. Will return soo.
