Top 3 Bars in Nashville, Tennessee

The vibe in the state of Tennessee is music. From blues and rock ‘n roll in Memphis to blue grass and country in Nashville, music is everywhere. When it comes to live entertainment, there is no place like Nashville. The downtown is lined with bars, clubs and restaurants, most of them with live entertainment. Every June, country music’s biggest stars descend on Nashville for the four-day annual CMA Music Festival. The country singers perform all day and night at various stages set up throughout downtown Nashville. Fans can get up close and personal with their favorite artists.

With so many bars and clubs available, choosing one is not easy. Here are the top 3 bars that I highly recommend.

Wildhorse Saloon

A historic warehouse converted into a 66,000 square foot restaurant, the three-level Wildhorse Saloon is a not only a restaurant and bar, it is also a concert site and TV studio This mega entertainment center is a fun place to hang out, listen to a good band or participate in a line-dancing class. I always bring my out-of-town friends here; they loved the atmosphere and the food. Wildhorse Saloon recently opened a Billiards Room on the third floor; the pool tables are complimentary for all guests.

Season 8 American Idol contestant Danny Gokey is scheduled to appear in concert at Wildhorse Saloon on April 30th. Check their website for more information on their menu and prices, and upcoming events. The restaurant/club is sometimes closed for private parties. To avoid disappointment, call ahead.

Legend’s Corner

Right across from the Sommet Center and around the corner from Ryman’s Auditorium, Legend’s Corner is the perfect place to stop for a drink. Country’s biggest stars have been known to hang out here after performing at Ryman’s Auditorium, so you never know which celebrity you are going to run into. There is always a terrific band playing at Legend’s Corner no matter what time of day. There is no cover charge; the drinks are reasonably priced and the appetizers and snacks aren’t too bad. This watering hole is loved by locals and tourists. On the weekends, it gets pretty crowded.
