We enjoyed lots of places on Broadway, but much of the music has gone to hard rock rather than country. I understand that much of that type of guitar playing is amazing and difficult, but Layla's Doug Reynolds and his band really played good country you could stomp your feet to and sing along with if you want. We kept... More

Great band; fun people; room for dancing; highly recommended. We use the back entrance off the alley to avoid the front door lines.

We held a company client event there. We had the upstairs which includes an outdoor area in the back on Ryan alley behind d the famous auditorium. The bar food (fried chicken, southwest egg rolls, fried cheese, poppers and cheeseburgers) were uniformly good. The band playing downstairs was loud but good, and the open bar kept everyone happy.

We just happened in while a wonderful bluegrass band was playing. At first there were not many patrons. The band accepted requests and were authentic. Within minutes there were no empty seats. We really enjoyed our visit.

My husband and I stopped in on a Wednesday afternoon for a drink and to listen to some music. It was impressive to watch left hander, Bobby Darren play his guitar so skillfully. Both he and his singing partner sang many old Country hits. It was a nice time.

I have now been to Layla's for or five times on regular trips to Nashville. Each time, I am always impressed with the quality of the entertainment. It's free and you tip as they pass the bucket… A good deal. It's a seedy little joint in the middle of many seedy little joints, but this one also provides an opportunity... More

Not large by any means, but great place to sit and hear music. Good service and comfortable environment. However, bathrooms are dated and uncomfortable because you can see over stalls

Came here as a stop on the Hick Chick Tour--It's a dive bar but how can you go wrong with $2.50 PBR's during happy hour? The bar overall was a little narrow but has a good atmosphere and we had a great time listening to the band

I have been several times now. they always have good musicians and the staff are very friendly. The drink prices were good for broadway as well. I am in the service industry and they even give a better discount on top of that.
