The Frist Art Museum 

A beautiful downtown museum spot, and a local favorite is the Frist Art Museum! A top choice for performances, films, lectures, family events, music events and incredible art, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts is a must see when you’re visiting Music City. Not only will you find some of the best art in the area, but visitors under 18 years of age get in free! The Frist Art Museum is a classic spot built with enough special exhibits to enthrall any tourist or local visitor. 

The Country Music Hall of Fame

Music City wouldn’t be an accurate name for Nashville, Tennessee without a museum dedicated to country music. Located in the entertainment district of downtown Nashville, the Country Music Hall of Fame provides over 40,000 square feet of music history and so much more.

This unique museum and research center, located downtown, can offer any visitor the chance to learn about and enjoy the history of a strictly American musical genre. A must-see – this museum often includes live presentations to complement its galleries and exhibits. Cool off with a nice refreshing cocktail or beer at one of the local bars just outside this fun establishment!

Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar 

One of Nashville’s best blues bars, The Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar is a local favorite and the perfect place to discover incredible live musicians. Located in Printer’s Alley Downtown Nashville, enter Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar at a lower level staircase beneath a glowing neon sign and twinkling lights. 

Once inside, you and your gang will be able to embrace the New Orleans culture of this local bar. Enjoy bourbon sweet tea, Voodoo wings, live music, a dance floor, and cold beer to compliment your Cajun dishes. 


Skull’s Rainbow Room 

A unique speakeasy-style lounge, Skull’s Rainbow Room is another Printer’s Alley favorite. Offering delicious American cuisine along with a great selection of craft beer brews, these pairings go well with the real attraction of Skull’s Rainbow Room- the nightly burlesque show.  Visit Skull’s Rainbow Room the next time you are in Music City and experience breathtaking dancers, live music, and top-notch pub food.  

Goo Goo Shop & Dessert Bar
