The view from the upstairs bar was awesome. All the lights and watching the shenanigans on the street below - great Friday night out. Not to mention, the music was SO great. Would absolutely return!

Must see. Crowded but lots to see and of course listen to. Make sure you make it all the way through the place.

We wanted to visit Tootsies because of its historic connection to the performers from the Ryman. In past visits to Nashville, we have stuck our heads in and walked away because it was body to body, loud and smoky. We didn’t realize that we could...More

A bar is a bar! Limited seating, possible wait time, same drinks as anywhere else. So what separates here from others is the best music and entertainment! We stopped in our first night and stayed. Went back a second time and confirmed our opinion!

It’s packed with people, just expect that. Come here to hear great music on all three floors. Have lunch or supper or just something to drink and enjoy the energy.

Worth a stop and family family friendly. Good constant roll of bands playing and lots of room. Great place to cool off for a cold beer if you are hot as they have air con.
