Had a few drinks at this amazing bar. The music was the best we saw in Nashville, lots of talented musicians. Server was very attentive and they stock a few nice beers.

Hands down the best bar in Nashville. Hidden in Printers Alley, it boasts the best Happy Hour specials and has live music frequently. Bartenders are nice and so is service. Their selection of tap beers is limited, but the choices were all very good. Highly...More
