“If you’re wanting a full 180 experience from the honky tonk experience, come here! It’s located in the revered Printer’s Alley, home to everything alternative to the Broadway scene. This is a legit pub, full of soccer games on the TVs and everything in between. ”

“Also on Printer's Alley right off of Broadway, Miss Kelli's is a smoke-free karaoke bar! It's a fun time whether you are a karaoke enthusiast or just want a good laugh at those who love karaoke, but truly have no future of making it big in Music City. :)”

Bar
“Best sports bar in Nasville -- esp if you are a Steelers fan (we go even though we are not steelers fans ;) ) still a fun place with music / karaoke at times and the INFAMOUS DONUT BURGER / BREAKFAST SHOTS / AND AMAZING SANDWHICHES (the fries and slaw are a must on your sandwich. I might have my own sandwich on the menu :) :) so try the Italian stallion or late night the Bacon Egg and cheese!”

“Even employees are instructed to “speak easy” of Hidden Bar. But here are two hints about how to get there: a two-way mirror and a storage closet. Once you find this subterranean lounge, your efforts are rewarded with a cocktail menu that dazzles. When guests order one of three large-format drinks, such as the Emotional Rescue (Haitian rum, Puerto Rican rum, pineapple rum, sparkling wine), the pitcher is presented with a sparkler sizzling on its top while the bartender plays that drink’s signature song (Emotional Rescue gets Blue Swede’s “Hooked on a Feeling”). If you’re looking for something a little less lit, the rest of the cocktail, beer, and draft wine list is still interesting.”

“Ok this place is the best sushi in town but the owner is known as the sushi nazi. He will lock the door and ask if you have been here before. You must lie and say yes, but it's worth it.”
