Did our crawl of Broad way and this is one stop we were told not to miss. It is what we expected. It can be loud inside like the other bars but you cannot hear any music beside what is going on in the bar...More

Tootsie's was high on our "to do" list for our first trip to Nashville. We were lucky to grab a place at the bar and spent the next two hours enjoying the great music. Lots of people stayed for a drink or two and moved...More

Went there on a Saturday night. Line waiting to get in. It was packed to the gills. I would recommend coming early enough to get a seat or going on a night that was not so crowded so you could enjoy. Will definitely come back...More

Tootsies is a great place to hang out & listen & dance to country-rock music! 3 stories of fun with an outdoor rooftop lounge where you can look & see up & down Broadway!! All the honky tonks are exciting to visit!

Never, as far as I am aware. I'm not aware of any of the neighbouring bars along that strip that do, either.
