“The best place in Nashville for music”
Music is everywhere you turn in Nashville, which appropriately has taken as its moniker “Music City.” Make a stop in Music City’s Honky Tonk district, where families are welcome before 8 or 9 p.m., then most establishments enforce the over-21 rule. Sitting on the corner of Fifth and Broadway, Legends Corner guards the entrance to “the Honky Tonk Highway,” a stretch of bars known for their atmosphere and music. The walls of Legends Corner are lined with thousands of vintage album covers: name your favorite star and his or her album will be there. Next door to Legends, you will find one of Nashville’s most famous honky tonks. Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, known far and wide by its purple exterior, has been called “home” by many famous musicians. A little further down the "highway," you’ll find Robert’s Western World. As soon as you enter Robert’s, you’ll hear the sounds of Brazilbilly, the country music house band with Latin flair. Sandwiched between Second Fiddle and Robert’s, you’ll find Layla’s Bluegrass Inn, a cozy club that offers traditional bluegrass and a great atmosphere. Step into The Second Fiddle and enjoy the music as well as the Grand Ole Opry memorabilia lining the walls. The Stage says it all in its name: with the biggest stage on Broadway, you’re sure to find room to dance to authentic honky tonk sounds. One thing to remember while you’re on the Honky Tonk Highway: Wherever you land (and whenever: open 10am-3am), there’s never a cover charge and the music is always live.
The 3 story layout provides a fun atmosphere. Was there during a Friday afternoon with 3 separate live bands playing. They all had different styles and was fun to bounce around. Okay service, okay atmosphere, fun live music. Big venue to accommodate a lot of people. Wouldn't be my first or last choice.
Definitely one of the most happening bars in Nashville! Three floors of entertainment and drink to keep you going until closing time! It is usually packed, but the bar areas are well positioned to make grabbing an ale easy and painless. Music and dancing are the order of the day but you're equally at home if you're looking to watch some sport on the TV....
My advice would be to get here early and start your evening at the Honky Tonk before moving off to the less crowded, more traditional Nashville bars..
