People tend to check in during these times:
The Bluebird Cafe is one of the world’s preeminent listening rooms and the venue has gained worldwide recognition as a songwriter’s performance space where the “heroes behind the hits” perform their own songs.
Such an iconic, small, intimate venue. Songwriter nights are the best.
Bring cash for cover charge
Smaller place so plan on a wait.
It's a small cafe with an intimate atmosphere and great acoustics. Tickets are hard to get, but totally worth it!
The people at the blue bird said very mean stuff to us and swore and made fun of me and my family very disappointed
Get there early! I went on Monday for singer songwriter night. It was a highlight of my USA trip! The spinach and artichoke dip was delicious, the cider was yum and great music and atmosphere!
Come early in the morning for no wait an amazing food
Get here 1.5-2 hours before the show for walk up tickets as it's difficult to get tickets online.
Absolutely amazing! Remember, it's a listening room, so SHHH!!
In the round. Amazing musicians!
Awesome night of songwriters in the round!
Sunday nights are awesome
Great service. Pretty decent food. Just be prepared to wait. Grab some beers from the gas station next door...makes the line move quicker.
This is where Taylor Swift was discovered.
Wow, its Packed!!!
Must go for a writers round
Music and drinks. This place has amazing artists playing all the time.
A staple in Nashville!
Sweet potato fries. Do it.
Big Charlie's Rubber Band has played here twice for the open mic. We waited over 4 hours both times to play one song ... and it was TOTALLY WORTH IT. Can't wait to audition to have our own show!
Make reservations! If you decide to take your chances, go really early...4:15 for the 6 o'clock show.
Come early!! You want the 8pm show, but be ready to stand in line for 2+hours for the free show on sunday!!
It's first come first serve on Sundays and Mondays so come early
Intimate venue. Get your tickets online ahead of time if you can.
Go to a writers round. Reserve a table. You won't regret it.
Got to see some great talent at Writer's Night. Got in line a bit after 5 and did not get in to the 6pm show, but were among the first dozen in for the 8pm show. So...come very early!
Don't fall into the tourist trap. There are other places to hear great writers...overall disappointed in the quality of music on Sunday night writers night except for Jason Adamo!
The Bluebird pops up in most episodes of Nashville: Scarlett and Gunnar work here, Rayna and Deacon play open mic night, but scenes are actually filmed in a set that's replica of the real Bluebird.
Wow...table right behind the musicians! Thanks Kim and Mason Douglas!!
Such an amazing little venue!
The talent was great. The food wasn't all that good but I would get the sweet potato fries again.
Make reservations early or get in line early for the open seats!
Closed for fourth
This is the place where Taylor Swift meet Scott. And start her career. Ah♡
Outstanding evening hearing local songwriters/performers.
Always spectacular talent
Good food and good music. I can't imagine what else you could want!
This is the place for awesome music. Highly recommended that you get ere early. Get brown liquor drunk and rowdy.
If you do not have tickets Arrive 2 hours before the show start. Don't expect to be let in when the door opens. it will likely only be 15 minutes before the show before you get in.
Just outstanding place. Very atmospheric, intimate and warm.
Buy tickets at
small venue. space fills up quickly. you may have to wait in line. it is worth it. great singer/songwriters.
Without reservation they say be there an hour early, come earlier, the unreserved seats go in minutes, so so worth the extra wait!
Take an umbrella with you if it's summer standing in line without one can be rough
This legendary venue is one of my favorite places in Nashville to hear live music! Be sure to get a seat early!
