Great old place with lots of history! 3 floors with 3 different bands playing all day/night. We were there in the afternoon and went to the top floor as it was a sunny day and wanted to get a view. It was super fun. The crowd was friendly and so was the staff and the band. We danced and had... More

What a great venue. 3 floors, a balcony overlooking broadway. You couldn't ask for more. Watched live bands all day and night. Can't wait to go back.

Well, what can I say? It was a dream come true to go to Tootsies. We went with the intention of having one drink as it is quite expensive but with the atmosphere and the quality of the bands in there we were there for almost 5 hours! Absolutely fantastic night, had the time of my life

Like most of the bars on Broadway, Tootsies offers great music. The rooftop area is a great place to watch all of the action on Broadway.

This is probably one of the best places on the strip just because of the rooftop bar. It gives you a great view of all the shenanigans on the street. Haha. That being said, the Big Bang (the dueling pianos place) is definitely way better quality entertainment.

Its a historic bar on Broadway. Small bar downstairs with live music. 2nd floor is also a small area. The rooftop is most spacious with an outdoor and indoor areas. Looks like everyone that's ever been there has signed the wall. Good time -a must visit

We have family in Nashville so they took us to Honkytonk bars and this was the best. It was packed and is small but it's all about the music and the music here was fantastic. The bank played old school hillbilly to classic country to country-rock. A generous tip will get your favorite song played and the bank does a... More

While I enjoyed the historical and musical part of Tootsies, it is very hard to get around. This is of course to do with that everyone feels they need to at least see what the hype is about. I will say that it is a bit overhyped but offers great bands and a nice rooftop patio - one of only... More
