The Spot for live Bluegrass

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.

Great venue to see music in Nashville. Recommended by a family member as a must visit while in town. Great musicians that have played with famous names throughout the years got together for a wonderful show. The place has an awesome old country vibe and serves good tap beer and snacks. Would definitely go back if back in Nashville.

My husband and I decided to visit the Station Inn on Sunday night. My husband is a bluegrass fan and he was in heaven. We got there right at 7 and the jam session started almost immediately. There must have been 7 or 8 musicians to start and by the time we left there were probably 20 people jamming together.... More

This club is well away from the main tourist area and all the better for that fact. Way out on 12th Ave it surely is nothing to look at from the outside. Inside it is also pretty basic but we were welcomed in when we arrived early for the evening entertainment for which there was a cover charge rather than... More

If you are in Nashville on any Sunday night do not miss the Sunday Night Bluegrass Jam Session. It is truly amazing and legendary and if you love Bluegrass music, it doesn't get much better. Doors open at 7 PM and it fills up quickly, but people come and go and as they do, you just move up tables till... More

There are some great live shows here. The food is mainly Pizza and average. Very informal! Good Value, but there is an entrance fee.

This was a Sunday night bluegrass jam session. Very entertaining, extremely crowded (heaven forbid should there be a fire.) Can pick up a pizza, popcorn and a beer to have with your entertainment. Most impressed by the jam session: young and old; clean-cut, rednecks and hippies all coming together to make some incredibly good music!

I adore these kinds of small, unpretentious music spots. The show starts at 9pm, which is a little late for me. I arrived about 8:40, the place was empty, but it became pretty respectably filled by 9:30 or so. The bar serves beer and cider only, with a few basic snack foods. The walls are covered with music posters, the... More

I was here about a month ago with other visiting friends, and locals told us Station Inn was a great spot to see music. We looked in the free weekly and saw that Roland White band was playing and decided that was our weekend "concert" focus. The place is very old school, no-nonsense ambience with long, shared tables and folding... More
