Each day of 2021 has brought us closer to some new version of “normal” and the musicians are all stoked about it. Though the last year did try to separate us all from one another, the content creators and artists seemed to take the break from reality as a way to get closer to their crafts. Musicians especially have been caught up in the creation of new material for us to enjoy, and now we are able to go see the fruits of their labor at live shows again. Even if there are some “until further notice” rules in place about dance floors, we here at the Nashville Bar Bike Blog can’t wait to tell you about which venues are open again, opening for the first time, and never closed to begin with.
If you haven’t done so already, go ahead and bookmark the blog while you’re here. There is no better way to keep up with all the best that Nashville has to offer than checking back with us anytime. Whether it’s chicken, Vegan food, a history lesson or a Happy Hour deal, you can be sure to find relevant information to your trip to Nashville here on the blog. While you’re here, if you’re on an epic search for an activity that is fun for all involved, take a moment to browse through the FAQ section to find out more about our #BarBike. The Bar Bike is an eco-friendly party on wheels that will guarantee a memory or two to be made. No matter what activity you choose though, Nashville has a bit of everything going on anytime you’re around, or anytime you’re not. Keep on reading to learn more on local venues and where to go when you need a musical fix in Nashville. There’s nothing we love more than music here in Nashville, you will not have to look far to find an epic show by someone you have heard of, or need to.
When a smaller, more intimate vibe is the one you’re after, you are bound to find a small stage or two to enjoy in Nashville. Nothing can quite compete with the experience of watching a show in a room that cannot seat more than 500 people. Mercy Lounge is one of those little venues located on Cannery Row and is understood to be one heck of a good time regardless of who is on the bill that day. Though the business has since expanded, with the full Cannery Ballroom and The High Watt added to Nashville’s Historic Cannery building, you can have whatever type of concert experience needed for your trip. Check out Mercy lounge and the Cannery’s other venues anytime, you might be surprised to see who shows up.
Boasting “Good Music. Good Food. Good Friends.” 3rd and Lindsley is where you go out for dinner and a show when you want to eat good. Their full menu is stocked with tons of food and drinks, not to mention all of the performers that grace the stage. When options are what you crave, take a look at who’s going to be playing at 3rd and Lindsley on 3rd avenue. After being in the game since 1991, you know the visit will be worth much more than a quick lunch date.
Here on the Nashville Bar Bike blog, we have a knack for figuring out what you need to know when planning a trip to the city, or live here already and just want something new to do on a random weekend. With all that has been happening in the last two years, some people were worried about the effect it would all have on live music and other performances. Though the struggle has been particularly real, it was nothing that Nashville couldn’t handle and we are proud of the community for making it to where we are. Now that mandates are being lifted and venues can allow guests again, we cannot wait to get out there and start seeing live shows again. This list is just a small handful of spots to go when you get the itch for some music. Even though Nashville is known for the Country Music that seems to pour from every inch of the city, there’s something to be said for all the genres being housed in one location. Nashville truly is Music City, and one visit to any of these locations will prove that easily.
No matter what your vibe is, who you’re bringing, or how much time is available during your stay here in the city, there’s music to be found. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to see one of the big names at the Ryman, or one of the soon-to-be stars that frequent our bars and smaller venues. Either experience is one that will impress, standards aside. Here at Nashville Bar Bike, we love attending concerts and performances of all shapes and sizes, there’s no more fulfilling way to spend your time, unless (of course) you decide to book a tour on the #BarBike.
