"The Bluebird Cafe is one of the world's preeminent listening rooms and has gained worldwide recognition as a songwriter's performance space where the "heroes behind the hits" perform their own songs; songs that have been recorded by chart-topping artists in all genres of music. Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the tiny 85 seat venue is unassuming in appearance but some of the most significant songwriters and artists have performed on this stage.

After trying to get tickets on-line for a Saturday show, with no luck, we opted for Tuesday instead - not really caring who we saw but we just really wanted the experience. The directions on the web site are very clear about how to get tickets and it was nice to do this in advance knowing we wouldn't have to... More

Get there early!! We went on Sunday during MLK holiday. We attended the early show at 6. We got there at 3:45 and were about number 20 in line. We got in no trouble and were able to get a table right by the stage. People who got there at 4:15 -4:30 were too late and they didn't get in.... More

Wow, what an experience. I was at the Bluebird on Saturday Jan 7 for the first time. This was one of the shows they do every January for the Alive Hospice (24 years - God bless them) which I understand is the only time you can reserve tables. I was there with a group of 10, mostly guys in Nashville... More

I have never been to an event like this. It was what they call "in the round". Four songwriters take turns playing some of their original music and give a little information about what inspired the song. Simply amazing talent. I would not go if you don't have reservations. Check the information on their web site.

Well we couldnt get in on the Tuesday night as they had a water main break down the street. We went back the following night to the early show-- got there nice and early. Elliott was always so helpful and helped us- two Canadians finally fulfill a checklist on our bucket list...big thanks!!

Order tickets ahead of time! While we got tickets ahead of time, others waited for 3 hours to get in- they only have a few seats for first come first serve. Very memorable experience. Grab a drink and sit back and enjoy some amazing artists and learning the stories behind the music. I would schedule any kind of trip and... More

What a great nostalgic venue. That small joint feel in a big city. Arrive early to stand in line for the best seats. Super fun concert. Average food and snacks. But super cute t shirts.

I love the show Nashville so decided to take a chance on getting tickets. Went to the show last night and had an amazing time! Don Schlitz put on a great show! You need to me online at 8 am one week before the show you want to book. I logged on a few minutes before and waited until 8... More

Recently visited Nashville, tried to get tickets for a Friday night show but of course they sold out in a matter of minutes. I thought I'd have to miss out but on a whim we decided to try for the Sunday evening show since they do not require reservations on Sunday. We arrived at 7:45 pm (show started at 8)... More

We are huge fans of the show Nashville so had to come and check out the Bluebird. Happened to walk up right before the crowd and got in for an amazing time. We were just lucky but very thankful to get this opportunity.
