If you are looking for a fancy restaurant and lounge, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for real good music by local bands, in a "honky-tonk" noisy atmosphere, this is your place. And it was mine. We went to watch a friend's band play and spent from Noon until 8 PM there. Bands play several... More

My husband and I stopped into Layla's because the sign out front advertised "hillbilly music", and what could be more inciting than that? We were not disappointed. The band on stage that night was really good and had a great rapport with the audience. The bar was not super-crowded and had a real down-home feel, unlike the other, more touristy... More

Layla's is one of the most popular bars on Broadway for a reason. The music is great. The atmosphere is great. Good service. It's cool with all the sighs hanging from the roof.

Layla's was, by far, our favorite place to enjoy live music on Broadway. The bar itself is not flashy or fancy in any way, but the musicians and bar staff are just fantastic. The bar food was hot and tasty and the drinks inexpensive. I particularly loved that the music wasn't ridiculously loud and you could still hear the person... More

Stopped in for a few beers and to try and find a nice authentic bluegrass band. Didn't quite find the authentic bluegrass band but they were good nonetheless. Got a spot right at the bar which was nice. Liked it enough to come back another night.

Excellent live music, reasonable drink prices especially compared to elsewhere on Broadway. Friendly, attentive staff. What more could you want?

Haven't seen that since the Go Go's at Mile High circa '83 ? Hard to remember that far back but this was our second stop on a bar/music crawl and didn't disappoint, the gals were kicking it ! Didn't know the music at all but enjoyed regardless and as usual the bar service was quick & efficient !

A very nice music stop when walking on Broadway. Definitely a fun and crowded spot, loud with decent drinks and fun and lively service. Priced for the tourist area.

Best band locally we heard all week was here. Place is ok and the drinks are average, but the music and environment is really good here.

My husband and I came to Nashville just to get out of KC. We had heard about another bar. That was packed. So we tried out Layla's. The music was spot on. The artist were lively and they were singing songs a lot of people knew. The bar wasn't packed, which is a good thing for people wanting to just... More
