I stopped in because I’ve heard great things about this location it was really cool and has a lot of history on the walls. Three levels and three bands was very welcome and they all played a little bit differently so you could experience three...More

Great local honky-tonk and the singers know it. I know this is also Music row with other great spots, but you cannot get anywhere in Nashville without playing at Tootsies. It is smaller than most other honky-tonks , but that makes it more cozy. You...More

You just have to go to the iconic Tootsie’s to get the full Nashville experience! Three levels, each one with live music! Very crowded but a MUST do for anyone visiting!!

We went on a Saturday night so of course it was very crowded. They had a great live band playing 2000s and current hits. Drinks were a little pricy but it’s one of those “must do” places.

An iconic place and painted orchid/purple. It’s hard to miss! Two bands typically play here at the same time and the decor is fascinating -lots of pictures! Loved stopping in and listening to live music.

We got to Tootsies not too long after it opened. The first floor was packed, so we went to the next level. There were bands playing on each floor. The bottom floor was busiest, because it had the best band. The top floor was really...More
