    The new(ish) rooftop offers more modern country and a younger crowd than the authentic steel guitar worshiping lower floors.

    Several levels to this place, great day or night. The rooftop is where you want to be.

    avoid this place like the plague on a Saturday night. WAY over-crowded and not fun. the roof is nice on a normal evening though.

    One of the most historical country bars in town, and the former hangout of the stars of the Opry, who would slip across the alleyway and into the back door of Tootsie’s after their shows at the Ryman. Read more

    Very fun place, a must-see! Bring a sharpie (colored, or silver, or some white-out) to leave your mark on the table or walls! Different music on both sides!

    $2 for a cup of tap water, even when ordering drinks? Bullshit.

    Awesome live music! Definitely stop in if you're in the area

  • Michelle C.

    Great music but insanely crowded. Either go in the back door or expect a claustrophobic experience every time you go.

    Michelle C. · April 29, 2013
  • Mike R.

    The front is way better than the back. The guy playing in the back is terrible.

    Mike Robinson · April 28, 2013
  • Stephanie K.

    Ms Julie the bartender is awesome. Manages a huge crowd with time for extra special touches like an orange in the Blue Moon. Don't stand near the men's room door. Smells like fart each door opens.

    Two stages. One in back up the stairs. Backs upto the alley of The Ryman. A smokie dive. Seeing Tyler Stephens show case. Can be crowded.
