Robert's Western World is a Nashville country music legend and its popularity has revitalized the entire Broadway area.

Its strictly 21 years and over after 10p.
Lonnie's Western Room is a tiny joint with an enormous amount of country music memorabilia and dozens of autographed photos. Folks line up to express their devotion to their favorite country music artists. You see, the only live music here is provided by the patrons themselves. A small stage, a loud Karaoke system and "Garth Brooks style" headset microphones provide the perfect setting for the wannabe superstar to croon the latest hits. The weekend crowd is healthy, the beer is cold, and there is never a cover charge.
This is "the" place to kick your spurs up in Music City. The dance floor is the largest in Nashville, and the music and dancing are virtually nonstop.

This place is perfect for a night out with friends, a birthday party or for "boot-scootin'" with your sweetheart.

Country Music stars Travis Tritt and Lorrie Morgan have visited this Idle Hour Tavern, along with Lee Roy Purnell and David Lee Murphy. What brings them here? Tradition. For decades Dianne and Bobby Herald have hosted up-and-coming artists in what they call "a little old beer bar." Sure, they serve beer, but they also serve some of the best live country music in Nashville. Top artists still come by to perform for the packed house, and they usually stick around to toss back a cold one. Domestic beer is super cheap, and chips and pizza are served all night.
As one of Nashville's institutions, Santa's Pub's unconventional location is perhaps the least surprising part of this charming bar. Located on Bransford Avenue, Santa's is tucked away in a Christmas themed, graffiti-tagged double wide trailer. This cash only establishment is run by none other than Santa himself, also known as Denzel, and littered with Christmas decor, wood paneled walls and a man named Ichabod who's in charge of karaoke. The beer-only rule helps keep out the more rowdy patrons, helping to ensure Santa's Pub keeps up it zero fights streak. A colorful establishment to say the least, Santa's is a Nashville must visit.
