"The Bluebird Cafe is one of the world's preeminent listening rooms...

"The Bluebird Cafe is one of the world's preeminent listening rooms and has gained worldwide recognition as a songwriter's performance space where the "heroes behind the hits" perform their own songs; songs that have been recorded by chart-topping artists in all genres of music. Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the tiny 85 seat venue is unassuming in appearance but some of the most significant songwriters and artists have performed on this stage.

Best Experience! Don't miss this place :)

We went to the early show (in the round) on Sat. April 22, 2017. Really enjoyed the show. All the artists were fantastic. I especially enjoyed AJ Kross.

We were lucky enough to get 4 tickets at the bar. We didn't know any of the performers but by the end of the show, we felt like we could hear any of their songs getting national play. I loved their performances and the discussion of their songs and the talk among the artists. This was truly a highlight of... More

A small, intimate setting to see the best music Nashville has to offer. If I could make only one visit while in Nashville, this would be it.

We had heard a few things about the Bluebird Café and were lucky as we had not done our homework very well. If you plan to go, get tickets in advance (if they are available for that day or event). On open Mic nights, they do not sell tickets and the place is small. Since each performer at open mic... More

I was lucky enough to score two tickets for the show tonight. Amazing performances and a wonderful venue to see it in. This was on my bucket list and it sure met my expectations.

Amazing place to visit. If you don't have tickets (and they do seem hard to get) then you can queue on the door but make sure you get there early. It's only a small venue but that's definitely part of its charm. We arrived at 3pm for a 6pm Sunday show and queued until the doors opened at 5pm. Don't... More

We had a wonderful evening last night. Justin & Jamie Zimmer, David Bradley & Chris Wallin were performing. They were fabulous. We had tried to get tickets but were unsuccessful so had to queue. A nailbiting 45 minutes later and we got in. Amazing seats right next to the performers! Would definitely recommend the bluebird to anyone visiting Nashville. If... More

Made famous by the Netflix series "Nashville", we had hoped to check it out while we were there. Unfortunately, the venue is a lot smaller than we had thought and impossible to get a reservation, and only a slightly better chance of actually attending a performance without parking yourself outside an hour or two before a show. The Bluebird is... More

Heard about it through friends but rather than try to reserve tickets online, which are tough to get, we opted to stand in line for about an hour for the first show at 5. Way more fun as we talked to both locals and other travelers. Once inside, the venue is funky and intimate, bar food is good too. The... More

Wow! I will remember last night forever. Seeing up and coming Nashville singers/songwriters in an intimate setting was incredible. A unique experience. Food selection was limited, but tasted good. If the Bluebird is on your list - follow the directions on the site to get tickets ahead of time! The line for walk-ins starts building a couple hours before the... More
