Iconic bar in Nashville. Four floors with a live band on each floor. Night time the place rocks. Drinks are pricey but that's what it is. Music is good.

We called in to this bar one evening during a four day visit. The bar was totally packed so we only stayed for one beer. The staff were friendly and the music was good.

We went there at noon on a Saturday and it was so crowded on all floors! It was hard to hear the music because most people are there to drink and hook up. Was so disappointed. Drinks we're ridiculously expensive and you were guaranteed to...More

Never, as far as I am aware. I'm not aware of any of the neighbouring bars along that strip that do, either.
