"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.

This was my favorite night in Nashville. The songwriters/singers were incredible and a lot of fun. We got there about 4:20 since we didn't have reservations and weren't let in until about 6:20. It was worth the wait. They let in about 30 people in...More

You have the Honky Tonk bars downtown, legends at The Grand Ole Opry and songwriters at The Bluebird. A 31/2 hour wait but worth every minute. A bit of a Father's Day theme set the mood and the talent stretched and strained. Complete the picture...More

Waited in line for 75 minutes for the doors to open at 5 since we did not have reservations. The wait was worth it, great music, food and atmosphere.

You're taking a chance if you arrive without a reservation. I was one of the lucky 20. No charge to get in, just a small food/drink minimum ($10). Good music. Good food. Make sure you order something that comes with their yummy homemade potato chips.

We were told to arrive at least an hour and a half before the doors opened ( we were there on Sunday night before they started taking reservation). It was cool and raining and the crowd waited patiently. The doorman would come out from time...More

Although securing tickets ahead of time is very challenging; if you arrive 1.5 hours before the performance you are likely to get a seat (provided, however, that there are no more than 15 folks ahead of you in line.......'cause then you arrived too late). The...More
