Second Fiddle was the best bar that we stopped at all weekend in Nashville. They had a band playing, Smoke N Guns, that was outstanding. The bar tenders were very good. The crowd was fun. Great experience!!

A must stop when on Broadway. You feel welcomed from the time you walk in the joint. Bartender was a sweetheart and the music was amazing.

We stopped in because we liked what we could hear of the music from outside. As it turns out we had a nice sandwich for lunch while really enjoying some dang good music.

We always stop at The Second Fiddle when we come to town. The bands here range from old to new county, sometimes with a little rock and roll mixed in.

We had a lot of fun listening to a band- I think they were called Scallywag. Good service, upbeat atmosphere. Room to dance between tables.
