"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.

I am blown away by this place! I love Nashville and it's whole concept. Country Music and sticking to its roots. The bluebird cafe really is a little part of the heart of country music. Great acts, great atmosphere, I truly am honoured. I was lucky enough to experience an open mic night. INCREDIBLE. You must visit the Bluebird. But... More

We arrived at 4pm, having been unable to get advance bookings and queued for entry. It went up to the wire and we were the last two people allowed in. Having watched 'Nashville', I was thrilled to be seated next to the musicians playing in the round. A treat listening to four musicians, Lance Cowan, Wood Newton, Pat Flynn and... More

All I can say is WOW! I have been to Nashville quite a few times and have never been able to fit this in until now. I would say this is definitely something not to be missed if you are heading to Nashville. The atmosphere and acoustics were AMAZING! Word of advice is to pay attention to the reservation window....

We went to the Bluebird on Sunday night when it was first come first served. We queued for 3 hours and by the time the doors opened there were more people than there were seats, luckily on a Sunday they have 2 shows so hopefully everyone else got in for the later show. I have to say it was worth... More

My wife is a huge fan of Nashville, me not so much but what I am is a fan of intimate music venues where gifted artists play great music and the early session at The Bluebird delivered on every level. As we didn't have tickets we arrived at 2.30 for the 6 o'clock show and ended up at the front... More

This has been on my bucket list forever. Woke up at 6 am west coast time and had no problem getting tickets. This is such an intimate venue and listening to the musicians share their stories, then sing was magical. We were so close to them performing and that was so cool. I had no idea we would be that...

Just read Nancy M's review, we were two of the four people at her table, and she and her husband very kindly let us share their Uber back downtown, had great fun with them. Going to the Bluebird Cafe was something we had wanted to do for many years and I had seen that the booking system could be tricky.... More

We at a table with four other people we did not know and it was the best! The four others were wonderful and one ended up... More

We visit Nashville about every 18 months for a business conference and every time we have tried to see a session. This year we were able to secure reservations and were not disappointed. A great place to take in great performances. Not a bad seat in the house. Time just flew by. Cannot wit for the next opportunity to visit!
