Tootsies is a staple in Nashville, almost everyone has heard of it, so everyone goes there while they are in town. Its typically packed, they have multiple levels with multiple bands. After a few cocktails, you can easily get turned around quickly when its super busy and you are simply trying to find the bathroom, so don't let your drunk... More

I loved this place! Yes, it's old but has great character. Three floors of great country music going on all at once gives you a choice of where to listen. As soon as we walked in, the bartender asked to take our order, even though it was chaotic. That's a good bartender. We went at 1:00 on a Saturday afternoon... More

We were in Nashville over CMA's and this was our first stop! Great old building, the rooftop bar looked awesome but was shut down for CMA taping. We were right by the door on the second level and it was tough listening to two different bands on the first and second levels but they were good!

As with all the bars in Nashville, it's down to the acts and the atmosphere they create! I've been here a few times and it's always been super! Lots to do and see in Nashville but you should make an effort to be here!

Regardless of the night of the week, you can always find a good crowd at Tootsies and decent music (especially since there are 3 floors of different artists to choose from!). Real country feel and the bar is steeped in history. A must see while in Nashville.

As the title says, I entered Tootsies through the alleyway and knew from the start this is a dive bar. Don't get me wrong, I love dive bars. Ive been in more than my share. It was a Wednesday night and packed to the gills! The young crowd was into the band that was playing on the backroom stage. I... More

The band playing was great. They were very talented especially the fiddler player. We stopped in for a live downtown bar experience and it delivered. The bar staff was friendly. We see Sterlin Marlin driving at Nashville Fairground Speedway for Tootsies and wanted to support them.
