They had a great band playing on Friday night, it wasn't too packed! Was there on Friday and Saturday night, the band on Friday was way better than the one on Saturday, when we stopped in they were covering rap / dance songs. Not what I came to Nashville for.

My friends and I recently visited Nashville (a second trip for all of us) and found ourselves spending a lot of time on this spot. The house acts were really talented bands/artists and had great bartenders. Definitely was one of the highlight of this Nashville trip.

Like all places on Broadway, a huge part of how these bars are enjoyed depends on the live music. I was happy to enjoy afternoon shows on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was a full band with a fellow with a good-sized beard. I can't remember his name but they did a really good job. On Sunday, there was a great... More

We stopped here for a quick drink on the way back to our hotel. There was a band playing who was pretty decent. Our biggest disappointment is that we asked for two drinks and two waters and instead of giving us two cups of water, they charged us for two bottles of water. We are in the United States where...

We decided to bar crawl and listen to as many bands as possible and I think we got an 'A+' on that self test ! This Honky Tonk didn't disappoint and we enjoyed a couple of jars & the Music and even packed service was still good & fast !

We hit a lot of places on the strip and a lot were overcrowded, young and just unbearable to enjoy. This place was a gem. Not packed, great live band, bar staff excellent and you could actually move around and dance by your table. We mostly saw couples and some groups but ages looked between late 20's to 50's give...

Almost walked by this little gen but the staff convinced us to give it a try and we were not disappointed! Loved the older country music the band played and was able to get a table & spend a couple hours there.

We are here for the Packer game this weekend and have been trying out a few bars - this is one that I would recommend for sure! If course it's crowded but still room to maneuver around. Staff was very nice and fast even with all the people! The band was fabulous too! Will likely be going back again sometime... More

On our recent vacation we wandered the honky tonks, looking for the best place to spend most of our evening. Hopping around on previous trips proved to be a waste of time, so we had hoped to find 1 or 2 good locations to relax and enjoy the show. This was a great find, with a band that played a... More
