  • If you're looking to discover the "next big thing", look no further. Located below Grimey's record shop.
  • Check out New Faces Night on Tuesdays and be sure to tip Geoff and Dave!
  • My favorite small music venue for an intimate experience. Ive seen bigger names and lesser knowns play, and always feel there is something magical about the place (upstairs is Grimeys record store).
  • Bring cash. Sometimes there's a less crowded cash only bar in the front.
  • Buy Dean a shot of whisky!
  • Best sounding rooming in Nashville
  • This intimate venue located under an indie record store is great if you want to experience great music outside of the ordinary ultra competitive music scene on Broadway.
  • Always double check the parking lot.
  • Really great venue...very unique and worth checking out!
  • Awesome, intimate venue. Really talented musicians.
  • Great small venue. Perfect place to see local artists.
  • I don't remember leaving a tip! Oh no! I owe the guys a tip. Will do!!
  • Get here early for a great seat. This place never disappoints!
  • Decent selection of beers for a dive venue.
  • Fun venue for a show
