First saw on the TV show Nashville. Make sure to get your tickets ahead of your visit. Watched a concert in the round with 4 great musicians . Super talented people for sure. Simple bar food, but tasted good and not outlandishly priced. A must see.

amazing music. this is a listening room. What a night. well known Nashville song writers singing and playing their songs for charity. The artist who wrote " I hope you'll dance" played his song and we all sang along. The female in the group wrote a song to rebuff an argument about a song from the Nashville TV show. She... More

I was very excited to travel to Nashville just to visit the Bluebird! The tickets that could be reserved were sold out within 3 minutes of being posted, so you must act quickly! Once our tickets were reserved we walked right in (a week later when we were actually in Nashville!) and sat at our table. Because of the limited... More

The stories are true this is truly an awesome listening room. Difficult to get tickets and a bit out of the way. Drinks aren't cheap but well worth it to provide the live venue. Didn't try any food but it looked good. Service was great and can't wait to go back.

Took a chance on an artist I hadn't heard of just to experience the Bluebird Cafe when we visited Nashville. I am so glad I did. I made it a point to go online the minute tickets became available, and I quickly bought two for one of the 3 front row tables. It was freezing cold the night we went,... More

This "listening room" wreaked of music history and authenticity. Do not be turned off by the strip mall location. This is the real deal where you can listen to up and coming artists, and have some well-established ones drop by and grab the mike. We listened to 4 amazing vocalists accompanied by their guitars. Goose bumps. The waitstaff is fantastic,... More

The Bluebird Cafe is definitely smaller than I thought but also just as great as expected. There are ques here almost every day and every show sells out in minutes. Inside we got some of the history behind the cafe and got to look around before the normal audience got to enter. So many artists started out in this little... More

My husband and I went to the Bluebird on December 28th, the night of the Haiti fundraiser. I got online about 30 minutes before tickets went on sale the week before the show. As soon as the sale started I grabbed the first two seater table I could and checked out. The event sold out in like two minutes so... More

Recently visited Nashville, tried to get tickets for a Friday night show but of course they sold out in a matter of minutes. I thought I'd have to miss out but on a whim we decided to try for the Sunday evening show since they do not require reservations on Sunday. We arrived at 7:45 pm (show started at 8)... More

I have always heard about the Blue Bird Cafe and always wondered what it would be like to actually go and listen to all the natural talent that goes through that kind of place. My wife and I went on a Monday open mic night and was blown away at all the amazing natural talent that embodied that room. The... More
