Live music in the bars from 10.00am at weekends

Great atmosphere. Music coming at you from all angles. Good places to eat ribs and stuff. We bought cowboy boots at the boot barn, which we thought were reasonably priced.

Downtown Nashville is a souless place apart from the fairly short strip of bars/ music venues around Broadway. Its heart has been replaced by monstrously ugly oversized developments which do nothing to create a sense of community. Even the historic Ryman Auditorium has been blighted by an inept recent extension. It has little to offer a visitor in comparison with... More

Everywhere you step a new song hits you and your swarmed with lyrics! There are tons of nice little shops and restaurants everywhere! And at nights tons of bars and live music!

Loved downtown Nashville. This is a must-see for anyone visiting Nashville. There are so many bars with so many types of music, including karaoke, that all should be appeased. Printers Alley is a wonderful area catering to all types of genre of music so find it and love it. One of the best downtowns I have visited.

Lower Broadway is a must visit area if you enjoy music. Nashville is one of our favorite extended weekend getaway locations. Restaurants, Honky Tonks, museums, historical venues, sporting events, are just a few of the draws for this wonderful town. Here are a few recommendations for you if you've never been there before. There are hundreds of great restaurants throughout... More

What a great place! Make sure to head downtown for a few hours when in Nashville - there is shopping, drinking, dancing and so many boot shops! Great fun.

We checked in, room was worn badly, dirty and flies all over. Decided to leave, hotel wouldn't refund our money stating we needed to cancel 24 hours ahead. After returning home contacted corporate to find no help either. This hotel needs to be refurnished and management training. We were rripped off.

Nashville is such a gem! The music at every bar is so unique and we had a great time just walking around and listening at every open window. the sidewalks a fairly clean and the street felt pretty safe. So much to do within walking distance! The country music hall of fame, blocks and blocks of food, shopping, the Bridgestone... More

We were only in town for one evening as we were traveling through. Walking downtown during the day and at night is highly recommended. Almost like two different places. The view from the bridge is so nice during the day and the lights and sounds on the street are fun at night.
