The drinks were pretty expensive for such a dive bar. It has a great deal of history and the music was good, but not being able to even go up or down the stairs because they are jammed with children and adults makes it seem a little unsafe.. The floors and tables were very sticky.....Pretty rough

This was an excellent place to listen to live country music. Its is a little run down but that is just because it has been around forever. many county stars have begun their careers at Tootsies. There are three different stages within the lounge. The front door stage, a more intimate back door stage, and then the third floor stage... More

Three levels of music pretty much for anyone. The drinks are a little pricier than some of the other strips spots. However the musical talent seems to be better. Also, you never know what surprise might lurk around here. We got a surprise visit from Brad Paisley and John Fogarty and a solid hour of hits. Very cool!

On the first night it was so crowded we couldn't walk in...Second day went around noon. Well worth the visit and completely justifies the positive reviews. There were 2 bands playing on levels one and three. Both were great. It wasn't very crowded either. A place where you can party with your buddies or find a corner and enjoy the... More

Every floor was a different vibe, but the rooftop was definitely the most fun! We really enjoyed Donny Lee and the band he was playing with. They were friendly, talented, and put up with my husband's multiple requests for rock songs. Tootsies itself isn't that impressive and the drinks are expensive, but the experience is worth it!

This bar is situated in the heart of broadway in music city. There is an outdoor patio upstairs and music plays always! Menu is pretty much on a par with other pubs in the area. Food is ok but service is lacking. No napkins, condiments offered. Brilliant views of Broadway. Ideal for a beer on a sunny day.

Definitely for the younger crowd and there is no shortage of beer or alcohol. Four levels with a different band on each level all day long. They have a rooftop patio but you'd have be be lucky to get a spot there most days, particularly if it's warm outside. This bar is very typical of most of the bars along... More

Not a place for children but a great place for late night music. Very crowded so get there early if you want a seat.

We were in Nashville for the 'Sing Me Back Home' Merle Haggard Memorial Concert & stopped in @ Tootsie's on our first night. What a great find. Jake Mauer & the band at Tootsie's was really really good. Jake has a great voice, loved all the songs he sang, & his personality just oozes out of him. We could not... More
