Nashville – welcome to Nashville, the “Music City”. No visit to Nashville would be complete without a trip to the honky tonks and dive bars that make up the city’s nightlife. Most of the live music venues are in “The District,” a 20-block area downtown that includes three historic districts that have been the epicenter of Nashville nightlife for decades.
While there’s sound 24-7 in this city, the best of it happens at night in bars, particularly in honkytonks, which are spots that play Western swing and offer dance floors for people to cut loose (when it’s not too crowded). Swing dancing the night away to classic country jams is one of the top things to do in the city. Honkytonks are no-cover-charge joints, but you must tip the band when the hat is passed.
