Going to Nashville and looking to drink?

If you’re planning on making the trip to Nashville anytime soon, you’re going to want to take a look at our list of places to pour yourself a little something strong and have a good time.  Sure everyone goes to the strip of honkey tonks on Broadway, which can be fun at times, but there is an entire city full of amazing places you need to check out.

Here’s 13 of the good ones:

The Red Door Saloon



In a city where everybody plays, everybody sings and everybody is trying to be the next big Nashville star, it’s fun to pretend your’re a rockstar too. If singing Karaoke in a Christmas themed trailer doesn’t make you feel that way, I don’t know what will.

Santa’s Pub


Classier Options:

In the words of Eric Paslay, “everybody needs one night, to go out in style.” If you want to class it up a bit, then check out some of these Nashville gems.

The Patterson House

Bar Luca


Trendy Spots:

Want to get on the scene with some of the hippest folks in Nashville? These are the bars for you.

Old Glory


Bar 308



Broadway is the main strip of bars and honkey tonks in downtown Nashville and although it can be a great time, it’s primarily packed with tourists and bachelorette parties. If you can handle the large crowds and  you’re new to Nashville, go for it.

Sidenote: Be careful at Honkey Tonk Central. Kenny Rogers’ nephew might toss you out for having too much fun.
