I just love this place and the atmosphere, there are always good bands. Can be very crowded on the weekends but it's worth it. The rooftop bar is always fun.

There are so many honky tonks and music venues on Nashville's Broadway that you might get lost in all the choices, BUT ... plan to see at least one show at Tootsie's. They showcase country music at its finest in an intimate, laid back setting...More

What a neat place. Older building, but was so cute and fun! Loved the story behind it and the music was amazing! One of our favorite places we went to!
