Our favorite place for live music. We are locals.

Have been enjoying this place since way before the Gulch was The Gulch. It is worthy of 5 stars for the quality of the musicians that play there. The only reason I knock off a... read more

Have been enjoying this place since way before the Gulch was The Gulch. It is worthy of 5 stars for the quality of the musicians that play there. The only reason I knock off a star is that I think the staff could do a better job of keeping the audience from talking loudly during the performance. That is my... More

I worked at a club called the Springwater adjacent to the Parthenon along the side street. Near Vandy. Does anyone remember those days. I would serve beer, chili and french fries. Terri Cantrell owned it and Cantrell's.

Spent an amazing Monday night here in late-October 2016 whilst on a short trip to the States (and Nashville in particular). At that time certainly, Monday nights involved the legendary Carl Jackson, songstress Val Storey,a legion of their friends and various guest spots. I remember visiting Paris a few years back and being amazed that for a few Euros I... More

We went to see the Doyle & Debbie show on a Tuesday night. This place is an old school place. Very small with great history.

When in Nashville always check to see who is playing at the Station Inn. This is one of the best music venues in Nashville. The atmosphere is unique and is the quintessential honkytonk bar. You don't go there for elegant atmosphere, you go for great music. They also had a good selection of beers. You have to go at least... More

Girls trip to Nashville and after one night on broadway I had to find the authentic Nashville scene. This was it! Perfect for anyone looking for non commercial spot. Not expensive on the drink pricing and plenty of seating. Made some new friends and had a blast! Must see while in town

Hot, hot, high energy bluegrass music the night we were there. Super-talented musicians. If you have any pretense about you, you'll hate it but if you don't have a problem sitting on mismatched chairs at vinyl tablecloth covered tables listening to musicians wow you, get there in time to grab a table and some cheap beer ($15 Yahoo pitchers) and...

Located in an old building in a newly renovated, modern part of town, the Station in looks like an old dive bar with organized seating to listen to bluegrass, hillbilly and the like. Sunday night is "jam" night and it is all acoustic. The downtown scene is loaded with bars and sometimes very good music. The Station Inn is a... More

My husband and I were in Nashville to celebrate our wedding anniversary and wanted to see some live bluegrass - Station Inn did not disappoint! Such a cute and authentic venue...perfect spot for enjoying blue grass. The musicians here are extraordinarily talented, some of the best in the country. Get there at least 30-45 minutes early, as the line starts... More

This unassuming bar in the Gulch has hosted live bluegrass for decades. If you're looking for an intimate live music experience, this is the place to be.
