Here Are the Best Locations for Night Life

For people who are looking for exciting night life, Nashville, TN has plenty to offer. No matter what types of things people like to do, there are options for them to consider. Country music establishments are wildly popular, of course, along with good barbecue restaurants. But that is not all Nashville offers. There is a strong music scene in other genres, as well, and a number of high quality restaurants that can really be appreciated. Additionally, there are choices for families with children, young people, older visitors, couples, singles, and everyone in between. Here are some of the best places to consider.

Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar

For anyone who enjoys blues and likes to boogie, this is the place to go in Nashville. You can get great Cajun food, music seven days a week, and a Mardi Gras theme and feel that is fun and unique. It can be found in the Printer's Alley district, which is the downtown historic area. For anyone looking for a full-on blues experience, this is one location in the city of Nashville that will not disappoint. The band plays late enough to really enjoy an evening of drinks, food, and music, but it is subdued enough for those who like a relaxed atmosphere, as well.

Honky Tonk Central

Visitors and locals alike who are looking for a quintessentially country experience can check out this gathering place, where they will be greeted with three stories of live country music and pub eats. It is a great place for anyone looking for that type of vibe, no matter the time of day. It is not necessary to wait until late at night for good food and music, but there is definitely more of an energy and bustle to the place after the sun goes down. For people who like to line dance, listen to good music, and enjoy the type of food typically found in a quality pub, this is one of the places to check out when in Nashville.

Skull's Rainbow Room

While visiting Printer's Alley, check out this unique location. Circa 1948 and in a great speakeasy style, this lounge offers craft brews, nightly burlesque entertainment, and American fare that has been elevated to a new level. It is an interesting level of old and new, and a combination not always found in cities like Nashville. It is also a good indicator that places that are quirky and different can do very well in a city that most people know for its country music scene. For people who are not into country, there are still so many great places around the city to enjoy some amazing night life alone or with friends.

Tootsie's Orchid Lounge

Tootsie's Orchid Lounge played host to a variety of country music stars before they were stars, and when you go, you could hear some up-and-coming sensations yourself. With three stages and country music memorabilia lining the walls, you'll love the hearing the nightly performances while you enjoy a cold drink. Tootsie's Orchid Lounge was once called Mom's, but was renamed after the establishment was painted purple. This is Nashville's most famous honky-tonk. Whether you're a local or just visiting, you'll love spending time at Tootsie's.
