We always stop at The Second Fiddle when we come to town. The bands here range from old to new county, sometimes with a little rock and roll mixed in.

We had a lot of fun listening to a band- I think they were called Scallywag. Good service, upbeat atmosphere. Room to dance between tables.

We stopped in here as our first " honky tonk" in Nashville. Long and narrow space, lots of people and a great band. Enjoyed the music for 20 minutes and moved on to experience more of Broadway.
