"The Bluebird Cafe is one of the world's preeminent listening rooms and has gained worldwide recognition as a songwriter's performance space where the "heroes behind the hits" perform their own songs; songs that have been recorded by chart-topping artists in all genres of music. Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the tiny 85 seat venue is unassuming in appearance but some of the most significant songwriters and artists have performed on this stage.

If you have always wondered who writes the songs, then this is for you. I am a musician/songwriter and I really enjoyed it. One of the song writers has been on staff at a publishing house for over 23 years. We did wait in line...More

This is a must see in Nashville. Family had great experience. Loved the music, food, and atmosphere. The only issue here was that it was so packed because they sit so many people in to a small place. Would go again in a heart beat!!

We got reservations to sit at the bar instead of a table but it was still fun. Had a few drinks and listened to some great artists. I was rather surprised to find out it's in a strip mall. Still glad we got in!!

Intimate setting. Great music on a Saturday night with 4 newer artists in the round. All were excellent. It is worth it to get tickets on line. If no tickets ordered on line, be prepared to arrive 2 hours or more prior to doors opening...More

Well I guess you could file this under "lesson learned". We did not know that we needed reservations. We also did not realize how incredibly small it is. The tv show, Nashville, seems to give the impression that the Cafe is larger and has a...More
