The Blend experience is unique among the many cigar lounges I have visited around the world. The decor is inviting and comfortable. The ventilation system is incredible so there is very little smokiness, unlike most cigar bars. That makes it much more comfortable for any non-smoking friends in your group to enjoy a drink with you. Blend's staff is friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the cigars and whisky they offer. Blend is truly a relaxing and enjoyable respite from the typical "busyness" of the Nashville scene. I strongly recommend that you visit and see for yourself. And if you happen to visit Indianapolis or Pittsburgh, you can enjoy Blend lounges there as well.
Ryan. Best bartender in town. His personality is the BEST. He needs to train others to get what he does. Needs a raise, because he's great to deal with very personable. He has the knowledge to deal with all personalities. Love ❤️ his smile and the black attire Right on. Make sure tell his wife 😊. Thanks for hiring him. I've enjoyed this place because of him. 😍🎉
Really good place, but a bit loud music and a too bit rock&roll for a cigar lounge for my taste. Decent selection of cigars. Really nice setup and very comfortable sofas and chairs.
Amazing turkey and cheese sandwich. Fantastic staff who knows their cigars.
This place is absolutely incredible. I smoke cigars all over the country, and I assure you this experience will be unmatched. Ryan, Brooke and the entire staff will treat you like family and a rockstar at the same time. Drinks are super heavy pores, and their cigar knowledge is incredible. Their is only one true cigar bar in Nashville, and this is it!

Okay so place looks like an absolute dump on the outside but step inside and be amazed. Gorgeous bar along with everything else. Service is top notch. Drinks are amazing but expensive. Food is amazing and unique, not even too over priced. Haven't stayed for the burlesque show but definitely plan on it at some point. Other than the wait you won't be disappointing at this place.
This dinner was amazing! It's been a month and we are still talking about the food and atmosphere. If your here to have deep long conversation it's not the best bet as the live music is loud. The cocktails were perfect. The vibe of this place is hip and very dark. Our table was lit by one candle. Can't wait to come back!
This place is Legit! Truly feels like a speakeasy. Jazz music, good food, even better drinks, an authentic, historical venue that has maintained its ambiance. Oh, and at 11PM, they have a tasteful burlesque show that is a lot of fun, and will transport you to another time.
OMG!!!! I am writing this review as I sit in Skulls rainbow room, stuffed to the gills! Food and atmosphere is nothing short of amazing. My wife and I are here on our 20 year anniversary and we could not have chosen a better place to celebrate. Very friendly staff and impeccable service. Thank you and we'll definitely visit again!!!
Hit the mark on every aspect of "fine dining". Incredible atmosphere, incredible service, the food was amazing. For the restaurant experience alone, it was worth visiting. I also attended the burlesque show, the I'll me that was western themed. No nudity beyond what a typical burlesque show has. Very classy, very entertaining and fun, and worth the stay. The entire experience was great down to the dancing, singing, and engaging the crowd.

We walked up and down Broadway on a Sunday afternoon and ended up only finding a few lively places with music. Though many places had performers, several we're way too loud or had no one inside at that time. Robert's Western World had a family atmosphere with people off more ages (no kids that I noticed, though.) The music was traditional honky tonk, which was exactly what we were looking for.
Small, intimate place. Small, but adequate dance floor. Live music was great here. They have really good burgers and fries. I will definitely be back.
A group of colleagues and I were here last Sunday night and had a great time. The band was great, everyone was dancing, and we all had a lot of fun. However, one thing that should be noted: The underside of the bar is completely littered with used chewing gum. There was a man sitting at the bar who was not part of our group and when I walked up to order, I noticed the bartender had just poured some kind of alcohol all over the man's hand (I kid you not). Later, we ended up talking and this was the solution the bartender came up with once he complained about having touched some gum "that was probably chewed by Elvis fifty years ago." He showed us a photo he took of the underside of the bar with his phone and it was like a psychedelic Yellow Brick Road under there. So, I guess, go to Robert's and have a great time, but be warned: do not touch under the bar! I'm giving this place overall five stars for the good times, but if I had less fun, it would be two stars for cleanliness (men's bathroom was actually really clean) and one star for... problem-solving.
The place is rather small and feels cramped and it's hard to order anything because of how loud it is, but it is totally worth it because the live music makes everything better! I ordered the cheeseburger from this place and it was pretty good. The staff all seemed pretty friendly. Overall, it was definitely a fun experience to have in Nashville!
Just...the...BEST on Broadway! My first time on Broadway St. Various bands each night and they were ALL OUTSTANDING! The music is the most true to the Nashville sound of country music. I visited most of the places along Broadway. The only place I made sure to go all of my 5 nights was Robert's Western World. It can get crowded but if you're in Nashville for the music you won't mind. 5/5 stars ~

I absolutely love coming in to the Patterson House. Camille is a wonderful, sweet, knowledgeable woman. The rest of the staff is great too. The drinks are beautiful. Just be honest about what you want and what you like. If you're genuine and polite about not liking something they'll make you something new, no problem. It's fun to people watch here. The ambiance is relaxing and swanky. The tater tots are really top notch. One of my favorite parts of this place is one of the house rules: men can't approach women they don't know, unless invited or introduced by a friendly party. As a young woman, it is really comforting to know that I won't be bothered when I'm there and allows me to relax further. I would recommend the Patterson House to everyone visiting Nashville.
It has the feel of an Alumni house of an Ivy League University. Beautiful inside, but not a real speak easy feel. I had great craft cocktails, and a side of olives. The olives arrived with no eating utensils. I requested an olive fork or toothpick and they provided me one toothpick. The olives had pits but no worries they gave me a spit cup. I feel at a certain price point, eating with hands and spitting should be avoided on a menu!!! A pleasant experience, but not to die for by any means. Bar ONLY. Did not eat dinner. I feared more finger foods.
This was our first night out since having a baby. We had a phenomenal experience and were cared for above and beyond our expectations. Excellent drinks, excellent food, excellent dessert, and excellent service. We are very thankful for Camille who made it a special night. Oh and something to try... Step 1: Order the pimento cheese and mini burgers Step 2: Put the pimento on the burgers. Step 3: See Heaven.
Some of the greatest cocktails in the US. I've been coming to the Patterson House for over 8 years during business trips to Nashville, and for true cocktail connoisseurs, it's a worthwhile visit. Drinks are on par with exceptional bars in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and other major cities. It's not a place to get sloppy drunk, but start your night here. And order the bacon maple bourbon old fashioned.
This place has a good atmosphere and diverse drink selection. It is upscale and perfect for dates. My wife loves this place. It's a speak easy which means it's hidden but it is so worth it

Great place. Both times we went there were young bands trying out original material. So refreshing to all the club's on Broadway with good bands playing covers.
Nice place to have a drink after work with friends or alone. Good atmosphere, fast and friendly service. In the original print building Printers Alley is named after, which makes it really cool to see the history. Great for groups and a night in the town. Definitely a place to to go before and/or after a show at TPAC.
While visiting Nashville a local referred us to Alley Taps. The atmosphere and service were amazing! We also tried the food and enjoyed nightly drinks during our stay. You must experience this unique bar for yourself.
Wife ordered a drink that they were promoting on table top advertisements, the bar tender had no idea what she was talking about. She handed him the advertisement and he attempted to make the drink, it turned out terrible. I ordered whiskey on the rocks and was charged $2 for the "rocks". Didn't stick around for a second drink. I'm giving it two stars because the music was good. We would have stayed longer had the service been better. The place has potential but I'm afraid in it's current state it won't make it in Nashville.
CHECK YOUR CARD STATEMENT! They charged us twice on our card on 8/13. I contacted them via email on the 8/17 to complain and Tom replied on 8/18 that he forwarded our info to his GM. I haven't received a single damn communication since! I have emailed him back on 8/23 and now he's ignoring me. So now I am reporting them as fraud to my back. I wouldn't recommend this place unless you only use cash. They WILL steal your money then ignore you.
