Re: “JC's Bullseye Sports Bar

Home of Nashville's longest running rock and roll "pros night out", The Play It Again Jam. Sponsored by Pat Adams & Tennessee Concerts and hosted by Gary Allen from The Charlie Daniels Band, JJ Cale and Stonewall Jackson. Bandleader Walter Jowers, writer for The Scene and City Paper, leads the players through their paces and fines them if he can't see his face in their shoes. :D He ran James Brown's houseband for years in Augusta.

Every Sunday, year round cranking it up 5 PM-until? Pool tables, good food, friendly staff, drink specials, giant television, chicks, picks and licks! You can check it out at or email them directly to sign up for newsletters and invitations at

Re: “417 Union

This is a great venue, not only for eating, but the upstairs dining room doubles as a gallery for local artists. The current exhibit is by photographer, Nancy Diana, and features her "Signs of Life: Nashville - Part I & 2" series, her "Sustenance" series, and many of her landscapes of Middle Tennessee. Here's a link to many of the photos being shown:…

Re: “Greenland's Pub

New owner that took over after Tommy Greenfield passed away is not very good at keeping people happy. Management is terrible, drugs are rampant and entertainment that used to be the highlight has been replaced with the worst forms. It's difficult to imaging this place will survive it's current mismanagement. Maybe the next owners will turn it back around and salvage this quaint little pub.

Re: “Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe

Fantastic food! Best Veggie burger in town. We have them cater at least one tailgate each year. We feed 15 people for less than 100 bucks and there is food left over. Best red beans and rice i have ever had. Food is great. Beer only is the only negative.

Re: “Rumours Wine And Art Bar [Closed]

I visit Rumours on a regular basis. The food choices are are limited but fresh and delicious. The cheese plate and hummus are generous and I typically request extra crackers and bread. The wine can be expensive but Rumours does run specials so ask your server. The service is good (prompt and friendly). I love to sit on the patio on nice evenings. Rumours is great for a girls night or date night.

Re: “Loveless Cafe

I love this place, the food, the atmosphere, the history, the wait staff and the prices. If you go on the weekend for breakfast be prepared for a long but well worth wait. This is a place I ALWAYS take friends from out-of-town.

Re: “Corner Pub in the Woods

Great place to meet friends or make new ones. The food is great and the beer is cold. I really enjoy the patio. This place is loud and fun!

Re: “Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe

This is my favorite restaurant in all of the Nashville area. The food is delicious and well-priced. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and relaxed. I've been to Ri'chard's several times and I've never been disappointed in the food or the service. This is one place you need to go!

Re: “Lonnie's Western Room

Lonnie's Western Room is the dingy gravesite for the hopes and dreams of rejected Nashville Star auditioners. From the moment you walk into this janitor's-closet-turned-karaoke-bar, you are assaulted with the coppery, blood soaked stench of aborted music careers and a purgatorial sound that can only be found here. And no, that sound you'll hear is NOT a screwdriver in a pencil sharpener combined with the anguished screams of Bobcat Goldthwait pulling rusted wrought-iron anal beads out of his ass (don't be discouraged... that was my first guess too). With the help of this experience, Lonnie's truly redefines the term "dive", as in "Jesus, I would rather DIVE off the high side of Percy Dam than listen to you sing another f*cking song."

The silver lining? The drinks are cheap, so don't be afraid to pound a few beers while you listen to the "cowboy noir" singing Jason Aldean songs so high that he sounds like Mike Tyson before puberty.

Re: “The Rusty Nail

The lint of Hermitage's butt-crack, The Rusty Nail offers all the biker trash and dried-up bar skanks of East Nashville a place to wet their disease-ridden beaks with a vast selection of sub-par beers, ranging from all of your favorite Mexican brands to chilled hobo urine. Avoid the food at all costs, as it tastes like a cat that was salted and beaten against a tree. The mixed drinks are reasonably priced, but that does little to distract you from being surrounded by people who spent their childhoods locked in the attic. The last time I visited this bar, a man dressed in drag walked in and started flirting with the drunkest men there. Nobody noticed. In closing, for those Friday nights when The Rusty Nail is your last resort, find yourself an expired jug of milk and some livestock to rape. After all, you deserve to wake up with your dignity intact.

Also, they have a volleyball court.

Re: “Sol [Closed]

The food and service were great. This isn't the usual formula Mexican food found in national or local chains. The menu is well thought out and it all works with an upscale twist. Don't miss the Pollo Relleno.

Re: “The Gold Rush

While they did "clean up" the Gold Rush, they also cleaned out much of the essence that made it the greatest bar in Nashville. It could use a bit more warmth...too many tall tables and stools were put in during renovation. Having a few boothes in the front room would help the atmosphere greatly. It has to potential to be great once again, but as it stands I visit out of nostalgia and because it was my home away from home for many years. This bar could really be great again, I still give it a decent rating out of loyalty, but they should try to cater to their old clientele if they want to become truly successful again.
