"The Bluebird Cafe is one of the world's preeminent listening rooms and has gained worldwide recognition as a songwriter's performance space where the "heroes behind the hits" perform their own songs; songs that have been recorded by chart-topping artists in all genres of music. Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the tiny 85 seat venue is unassuming in appearance but some of the most significant songwriters and artists have performed on this stage.

Good music, good food, and cool atmosphere. Waited in line about an hour and 15 minutes for early show so not too bad. Service was good as well.

We were lucky to get a booking to this excellent music venue. We enjoyed an evening of intimate entertainment from a group of talented musicians. The setting was perfect and was a highlight of our trip to Nashville.

Here's the thing, you cant just go here 15 minutes before a show and expect to get in unless you have a reservation. We just drove by cause my Nashville obsessed friend wanted a picture. We got there at 3pm and there were already two...More

Had an amazing time! Intimate and charming. You can listen to a lot of music but listening to it here was so very cool.

Yes, it's almost impossible to get seats. When you do, and you arrive at a rather run down strip mall, and then enter a rather run down venue, you may wonder why on earth everyone tells you to go to bluebird. The food and drinks...More

Super night in this small intimate music venue. To get a change from the Honky Tonks on Broadway well worth a visit. Book reservations on line a week before, this puts your name on guest list. Friendly staff and amazing music. It's about 6 miles...More

While in Nashville, we made reservations for dinner at the Bluebird Cafe. (Each person must spend $7.00 while there.) Four song writers sat in a circle in the center of the restaurant and sang their own songs. Some were up and coming and one was...More

Communication from the staff outside was dismal. It feels like they have lost their appreciation for their customers. We arrived 50 minutes before the open mic night. Overall the lack of order with the line was frustrating. About a dozen people jumped the line ahead...More

Bluebird isn't really near downtown which is probably where you'd rather stay. Broadway Street and downtown area are all walking distance from lots of great stuff. Bluebird is a cab ride away and frankly stated, there's... More

Hi Tammy. If you already have tickets just arrive a quarter hour before the show. The room is small so everyone can see and if your chair is facing the wrong way just turn it around. It is an easy welcoming space. Just... More
