    It's a small cafe with an intimate atmosphere and great acoustics. Tickets are hard to get, but totally worth it!

    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!

    Get here 1.5-2 hours before the show for walk up tickets as it's difficult to get tickets online.

    Call ahead to get yourself a seat, and remember that the café is technically a listening room, so a certain level of quiet is expected (you will be shushed!). Read more

    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!

    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.

    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.
