A good start would be to check out The Station Inn. There may be some other bluegrass dominated jaunts and I would like to know as well. There are a lot of bluegrass type musicians/bands that play in Nashville, you will probably need to seek them out occasionally in regular music venues and bars. Good luck.

The Station Inn is definitely the place to go. It's known as one of the (if not the) premiere spots for live bluegrass in the nation.

I saw in google maps that is about 1.0 mi from convention center and the hotel I will stay, Are there sidewalks walkable enough all the way to walk towards there or should I take a cab if I decide to drink some spirits?

Thanks again

I would probably take a cab to the Station Inn. It's in a nice newer developed area called The Gulch but there is a pretty large rescue mission nearby. Not that it's crime central, but since you might be by yourself and have never been here, I would recommend a cab at night. You also should check out Roberts Western World on Broadway afterwards. Tootsies gets all the honkeytonk press but locals prefer Roberts. They almost always have a great house band (Brazillabilies are incredible).

I agree with yank...I'd take a cab. It's not unsafe...but I wouldn't tempt fate by walking that distance at night. There isn't much between the main district on Broadway and around all the hotels to the Gulch (where Station Inn is). If I had to walk it, I'd do it. But you'd be better off in a cab.

I second yank's recommendation of Roberts too.

There used to be a bluegrass bar in Printer's Alley (off of Church St. between 3rd and 4th Avenues) that I heard good things about. But I don't know if its still there.
