L27 rooftop at Westin or Mellow mushroom rooftop for 4th?

Trying to decide between l27 at Westin and mellow mushroom for 4th of July. Will it be standing room only for hours waiting for fireworks? Would kind of like to hear Lady Antebellum but is it going to be hard to Uber in and out on the 4th from East Nashville? Thanks so much for your help!

L27 at The Westin ($75, which includes food and drink) is about 8 blocks from the Riverfront and about 4 blocks from where the stage for Lady A and the other performers for the concert will be. You will not hear any of these concerts from this location. Mellow Mushroom ($50 for admission, with "AFFORDABLE Open Bar and Buffet Packages" is located between 4th & 5th on Broadway. You will be able to hear and see the concert from their rooftop.

The Symphony will be on stage at Ascend Amphitheater, with the program there beginning at 9:20 and playing and fireworks beginning at 9:30 pm. There will likely be video screens at each location to show the proceedings from the other stage. The screens will not be viewable from L27 and likely not from MM either.

The L27 will be much easier to get to, I was there last year and it was a situation where you had to "stake out your place" ahead of time to keep it for the viewing of the fireworks. I'd assume it to be the same again and also would think the MM would be similar, although viewing of the fireworks from there will be much easier. MM will be in the middle of where the biggest crowds will be.

The official site for the celebration lists 3 different ride share drop off / pick up points, with the KVB site being the closest to Broadway, about 2 blocks south. While ride share drivers are advised to use these locations, many go rogue and will pick up and drop off wherever, but this greatly increases congestion in areas where it is already very congested.

If you don't mind crowds, the MM option would be much better, if you want to avoid crowds as much as possible, go with L27.

As Patrick said, you're much closer to all the action at MM. The stage is on Broadway at 5th, so at MM, you're literally in the middle of the action. That also means you'll have a hard time coming and going as the streets will be elbow room only from 5th down. If getting in and out is a concern, go for L27.
