Every floor was a different vibe, but the rooftop was definitely the most fun! We really enjoyed Donny Lee and the band he was playing with. They were friendly, talented, and put up with my husband's multiple requests for rock songs. Tootsies itself isn't that impressive and the drinks are expensive, but the experience is worth it!

This bar is situated in the heart of broadway in music city. There is an outdoor patio upstairs and music plays always! Menu is pretty much on a par with other pubs in the area. Food is ok but service is lacking. No napkins, condiments offered. Brilliant views of Broadway. Ideal for a beer on a sunny day.

Definitely for the younger crowd and there is no shortage of beer or alcohol. Four levels with a different band on each level all day long. They have a rooftop patio but you'd have be be lucky to get a spot there most days, particularly if it's warm outside. This bar is very typical of most of the bars along... More

Not a place for children but a great place for late night music. Very crowded so get there early if you want a seat.

We were in Nashville for the 'Sing Me Back Home' Merle Haggard Memorial Concert & stopped in @ Tootsie's on our first night. What a great find. Jake Mauer & the band at Tootsie's was really really good. Jake has a great voice, loved all the songs he sang, & his personality just oozes out of him. We could not... More

Sure, it is known by all the tourists, but for good reason! Three floors of music, basic food (just OK) and a great Nashville vibe pack 'me in. Very busy - get there before noon if you want an outdoor lunch!

Went to about 5 bars on Broadway during a Wed night and this place was packed! Defiantly not the classiest but fun and a lot of history on the walls...bring your marker to sign your name! If the first floor is too crowded keep going up. Three levels of bands singing was great. No cover charge... however DO NOT bring... More

If you go out to the honky tonk bars in Nashville, Tootsie's would be the one I would recommend most. Awesome music on all three levels! The rooftop bar is great! Only negative was expensive drinks, but the food was good.

Went to Nashville for the first time and this place was always recommended to me as a "must see." We had a BLAST watching live music here. There were three different bands on the three different levels of the bar. It was a really fun atmosphere. We loved it! Definitely pretty wild on a Saturday night!
