Tootsies Orchid Lounge
Tootsies is a Nashville institution and a Broadway honky-tonk that’s been shining a light on country artists since the ‘60s. It’s about as old-school as they come, with photos on the walls of all the famous acts that have played there throughout the years. When you’re here, grab a few beers, take in the live music, and make your way to the rooftop bar when you need to get some air or just want to observe the Broadway circus below. The place is small, and it can get really packed, but that’s a fair exchange to drink at the same place where Willie Nelson and Patsy Cline used to hang out.
