My cousin is a huge fan so of course we had to go....but the music there was terrific and there's three levels to choose from. We were disappointed there wasn't food there but there's plenty nearby.

Went for karaoke on a Saturday afternoon. Dj was an excellent singer but did not have any of the new country songs I requested. Over all we had a good time but only stayed only about an hour. Wasn't too many people at that time. Maybe if it would have been 5.

We haven’t been to Nashville in about five years so we didn’t know what to expect when we arrived downtown on a Saturday night. It actually turned out to be a really fun time.
My wife is a huge Alan Jackson fan and we decided to come here for a while. We actually ended up staying most of the night here as it’s a really decent place for live music.
This place has four levels. a main floor with live county music, second floor with live music, the third floor has karaoke and the rooftop also has live music and is a nice place to hang out. Unfortunately the day we were here it was raining so we only went up to the rooftop for a little while. We mostly stayed on the main floor listening to different bands and doing some fun people watching. The beer prices are typical of any other bar in downtown Nashville. We paid about nine dollars for a can of Bud Light . I found they had margaritas in a can behind the bar so I was drinking those and they were priced about nine dollars as well. There’s some T-shirts and other bits of souvenirs to buy behind the bar. There is an elevator if your mobile impaired that will take you up to the rooftop, just ask.
Overall it was a fun time, we actually came here twice on our visit to Nashville. Recommend checking it out.

2 drinks here was almost $30! I wanted a t-shirt but they didn't have my size in stock. Cool decorations & the female singer was good on the second floor. 1st floor had an awesome band.

Excellent! Went here 3 nights in a row. Walked right past the huge 4 floor places and went here because the music sounded good. It was great. Good beer and nice crowd.
There is a karaoke bar on floor 3 which is quieter and good for a giggle.
Toilet was ok. Bar staff were friendly and helpful.
Music seemed to be all day. Bands change every 2 hours. No entry fee.
Just tip the band.
Would go back.

This was one of our favourite bars in Nashville. Good, lively country music and reasonably priced drinks. We tried to go back later in the week but it was packed to bursting.

Very nice little bar - very cosy compared to the bigger bars on broadway. Music from Jenifer Wrinkle was amazing! The bartender was very quick and helpful.

Came to karaoke, which was great.. we were able to sing right away. However, it was hotter than sh… . We asked several employees if they could turn in over head fans. No luck.. we then asked a crew member if we could move a little fan from the stage by us.. the crew member asked the general manager and right away with out regards to his customers. No. We left!!!
