“Up & Coming Songwriters & Good Food, too...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013

This is not your typical Holiday Inn restaurant & bar - The Commodore has been home to songwriters-in-the-round performances Tuesdays through Sundays starting at 7pm for several years now. The dimly lit seating area is meant to draw your attention to the small stage.

On top of hearing great songs from budding performing songwriters, the restaurant offers a good selection of American fare served by easy-going staff. While not gourmet-quality, each of the menu items would hold their own in a taste testing of pub food. The attraction here is the songwriters, and the food & beverages help in enjoying the evening.

“Great music, food, & coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2011

Songwriters sing their own composed songs to a guitar strum or keyboard playing. Nashville is the only place in the world where you can actually watch & hear a country song being born, & Debi Champion's writers nights, Tues-Wed-Thurs, 7pm til ??? at the Commodore Lounge, Holiday Inn Vanderbilt is the very best. This author remembers, years ago, after writing 50 songs, went to Nashville to hear the best, went to a Debi Champion writers night, heard great song after great song after great song, and then wanted to go home & shred all 50 songs! Debi Champion books the best, including a group of writers visiting from Kentucky, singing great self-penned songs, and comically calling themselves "The Fried Pickle Queens". What a hoot! Great sound, great ambiance, great burger, great coffee.
