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 honky 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 of the good ones:

Shit Shows:

Why do we drink? To get drunk. No explanation needed.

The Red Door Saloon

Karaoke:

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.

Broadway:

Broadway is the main strip of bars and honky 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 Honky Tonk Central. Kenny Rogers’ nephew might toss you out for having too much fun.
