    Honky Tonk Bars - Nashville TN

    June 16, 2017 in the United States

    What do you do when it's nearly 100F out ? Head to a honky tonk bar or few on Broadway for some cool beers and great music. Roberts Western, then Tootsies and finally, our favourite, the FGL (Florida Georgia Line) House. Stew's Amy Winehouse shirt was the talk of Nashville today !!

    Tootsie's Orchid Lounge - Nashville TN

    October 7, 2016 in the United States

    A back alley separates this honky-tonk bar from the Ryman & artists would come here to hang out during & after performances. Owner 'Tootsie' Bess was well-known for her generosity toward struggling musicians such as Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson & many more. According to tradition, a painter mistakenly painted the exterior orchid purple & that's how it has stayed. This place has 3 floors & was mobbed all day !!Read more

    Nashville

    July 20 in the United States

    We stayed just north of Nashville Friday night so decided to drive though and find a place to eat. We really wanted to go to the Sun Diner which was next to the Johnny Cash Museum but quickly figured out that it was way too close to honky tonk row and that was not the place we wanted to be on a Friday night. So we headed to the hotel and found a local Mexican restaurant. Was actually very good food! But we did decide to drive back though town the next morning after we went to the Parthenon. Drove by the Ryman Auditorium and just looked around town a bit.Read more

    N, N, N, Nashville (Open All Hours)

    June 14, 2016 in the United States

    Didn't really know what to expect of world renowned music city but as soon as we got into the locally named Smashville we loved it! Not just a live music joint on every corner, but also every place inbetween and on every level.

    We spent the first day trying to avoid going into every bar we saw, but we didn't do a very good job! We had a fantastic bbq at Pucketts, thanks to Jo's ex-colleague Suzanne's local recommendations. We were pretty full after mains but the Pecan and Caramel Cobbler wouldn't let us leave without it, and doing much of anything after that was tough!

    The following morning we went out to the Hermitage, the plantation of Andrew Jackson, the 7th President of the US. It was really interesting place, but wished it told more of the slave's stories like the excellent Monticello (Thomas Jefferson's country home) did. Sounds like politicians being wealthy is not a new thing, but to be fair Mr Jackson was a self-made man whose father died before he was born & became an orphan at age 14, that said a lot if his wealth was built upon the back of slave labour.

    That evening we hit the town and took in as many bands (and beers) as possible! We started fancy in a local urban chic bar (amazing cocktails) and then went full on Smashville on the main strip. Surpringly to us our favourite band were playing 50/60s rock and roll classics.

    We crawled into bed in the small hours and crawled out again a few hours later for the 8am England v Wales game. We got to 'The Pub' hoping for some atmosphere but we were the only ones there. Fortunately Vardy and Sturridge didn't disappoint in the end so the headache didn't seem quite as bad. This was a roaster of a day hitting 100F so we had to spend the day hunting out aircon and avoiding the bars. The Jonny Cash museum was pretty interesting, but the film was much more informative (if you haven't seen it, do). We had a really nice evening with Suzanne and Eric, Jo's (ex) work mate and husband, in a funky chicken joint (FYI Nashville Hot is pretty hot!) and ended up in the brewery next door.
