Nashville’s Best Nightlife – Where to party in Nashville

You’ve heard the stories and seen the Instagram posts from friends. Maybe you’ve even been there yourself, but the truth about Nashville is it is an ever-evolving, ever-changing city. Nashville nightlife is like nothing else, filled with multi-level bars, some of the world’s best live music, and glittering, neon-lined streets packed with eager party-goers. The rooftop bars are legendary, and the food doesn’t get much tastier. So what are you waiting for? Nashville is calling- are you going to answer?

If you’re planning a trip to Nashville, visiting Broadway bars and nightclubs is a must! This guide will help you figure out the best places to visit on your trip to Nashville so that you won’t miss a beat.

Party on Broadway – Downtown Nashville Best Bars


Anyone who has been will tell you the best place for Nashville Nightlife is Lower Broadway. This glittering street is packed with Honky Tonks and bars galore, each with incredible live music or coveted DJs. Broadway bars are famous for their multi-level entertainment with different bands and artists on each level! The big secret here is to head to the roof for an incredible view of the crazy party on Broadway. Lower Broadway is Nashville’s nightlife hotspot, and you’ll likely want to visit every place, so we recommend having a plan. Some of the Downtown hotspots include Coyote Ugly, HQ Beercade, and Bowies just 2 blocks from Broadway.

Nashville Rooftop Bars


Nashville is renowned for its rooftop venues, so checking out one or all of these is a must. Famous Nashville can be found on 2nd Avenue and Lower Broadway and faces the Cumberland River. Not only are the views to die for, but the tasty beverages will keep you coming back for more. Nashville Underground is an absolute must, mainly because it has two levels filled with fun. You can choose from the portion which houses turf and engaging lawn-based games or the level with 40+ TVs. You can also catch 360-degree views of the city, seeing as it is the tallest building on Broadway. If you’re looking for a posh experience, check out Rare Bird or L27, which offer elegant decor and an intimate setting. There is nothing like a Nashville rooftop bar to get the party started.

Join A Nashville Bar Crawl


Let us warn you- a Nashville bar crawl is like nothing you have ever experienced before. We’ve all heard of a pub crawl, but Crawl Nashville offers a VIP twist to the classic Nashville bar crawl experience. This Crawl will take you to multiple venues in one night, usually with included drinks, exclusive drink specials, and entry fees included. If you’re in the city for a short time, or if you have an aversion to planning, a Nashville bar crawl is a perfect way to take in the Nashville nightlife. Join other party-goers as the group hops from place to place, enjoying different bands, club-style joints, and popular Honky Tonks.

Party Until The Sun Comes Up

While the bars make Nashville nightlife so unique, the nightclubs are still something to behold. After you’ve had your fill of the well-known Honky Tonks, check out some of the famous nightclubs around town. MAI is located on Music Row and keeps the crowds dancing until 3 am. Play Dance Bar offers a live Drag Show and four different areas to indulge in their tasty cocktails. Our favorite is a bit of a secret, but it’s pretty easy to find if you head towards the alley of the printers after sundown. 😉

There are many unique spots to choose from when visiting this city of neon dreams. While you might not be able to hit them all, it is worth a try. If you’ve ever wondered what a country-western version of Vegas would feel like, look no further than Nashville. Don’t forget to pack those cowboy boots- you’re gonna need em.
