  • Melissa DSo cute but really tiny! Nothing like in the tv show Nashville

    33333 by Melissa D

  • Kevin NThe Classic and quintessential music venue in Nashville! Come early on Sundays walk-ins. Most people come for the venue more than for the bands, so don't expect an ecstatic crowd each time.

  • Fred WIntimate almost to the point of interactive, this legendary spot is hard to get into, but easy to love. The staff are friendly & unobtrusive as the music unfolds literally right in front of you.

  • Design*SpongeCall ahead to get yourself a seat, and remember that the café is technically a listening room, so a certain level of quiet is expected (you will be shushed!).
