I did do a search.
One thread from 2016 said it was a dump.
I will be in town this weekend for the Total Eclipse.
My first time in Nashville. Looking to check out a good spot.
Any tips?
Thanks.

I took a trip to TN not too long ago and was very glad to have researched the scene well.
One place I was going to go to, it was said 'they will bet it up here, what do they care, you aren't leaving with it'.

I did not let the rental car go there.

By many accounts, lots of chemicals fuel the scene there.

May just enjoy the bar scene on Broadway.

Hit Kayne Prime in the Gulch and then Jeff Ruby's downtown for a cigar and a good Port before you hit Tootsie's downtown. Screw the pool scene, there's waaaay to much good music up there. Heading there tomorrow morning.

Thanks. Will add those first 2 to the list.
Definitely had Tootsie's recommended already!!

You will need reservations at Kayne but it's well worth it. Don't wait...they fill up really fast, if they aren't already.

I've only been there once, a buddy was playing in a tournament and I went to watch and just check it out. Tables are nice, like what was said above. I plan to go back, seems like a nice place to play. Actually ran into a buddy I hadn't seen in years and had a great time. I live about 35 miles from there. If you're going on the weekend, shoot me a PM maybe we can meet up and shoot a few racks.

Thanks all.
Got Kayne booked for Sun.
Yote, I will let you know.
I plan on sleeping in Sat and Sun. :grin:
May hit Titans Pre-Season Sat to check out stadium.

Wife wanted to go to Graceland. No way!
I said we're flying in for a few days.
I'm not looking for a long road trip! Ha

Anytime I've been in Nashville, I've never gone to the Grand Ole.....
...the street singers and live entertainment in the worst dives are better than what you
get in most cities at their pricy venues.

You never know who's gonna be the next Kristofferson or David Alan Cole.....
...I don't drink much, but I always go bar crawkin' in Nashville.

Downtown was freaking packed last night. Can't imagine what it is like on a weekend!! Tootsies was stacked with, well, stacked beautiful women. I couldn't imagine living here.

H-cues upstairs pool room on 21st is probably a little closer to you than JOB. Four well kept 8-ft steepletons. Simonis cloth. Beer only. My home away from home.

Thanks. Last day. Haven't hit a ball yet.
Drank a bunch. First time here. Great time!
Eclipse was awesome. You probably saw that too.
....
Will definitely be back.
Staying across the street from Patterson House.
Going to try that place tonight.
....
Patterson House was cool. $$
Eclipse was definitely more like a little after sunset.
Looking around at the horizon was cool. Clouds still reflecting some light.
A few Stars / Planets coming into view was cool too.
We kept hearing locusts / cicada? No crickets.
Wish it was longer. We drove North of Nashville to get close to the longest duration line.
Some from years past have been over twice as long.
2024 is closer for me.:smile:

I know that Nashville was in the small band of area that got a 100% full eclipse (the only major city that fell within this band). Did it get as dark as a regular middle of the night? If so, was it more like a night with a full moon, or a more like a super dark moonless night? Did you notice the birds and other animals changing behavior as it got dark? That would have been really cool to experience in an area like you were that got a full eclipse.

It got dark, but not black. It was more like dusk, right before dark, but different still. I took a video of my lawn at full eclipse. It had ripples waving across it that looked like water. Reminded me of aurora borealis but faint. I have never seen anything like it. All I can surmise is that it was the sun's burning flicker like from a candle. It got noticeably cooler, went from 91 down to upper mid 80's for a few minutes. Out west I heard of 20 degree drops. My 11yr old had a ball.

As for animals, our cat who usually stays in the shade went out into the middle of the yard to roll around & stretch in the grass. Roosters from the neighbor farm were crowing like they do at 5am. It was an altogether weird, cool experience.

Have to echo qbuilders excellent comments. Yes more like dusk and you could see some of the brighter stars. The corona of the sun can only be seen st eclipse and does shimmer. When the moon moves past full eclipse and you get wats called the diamond ring it was awesome. I was in Sweetwater tn for the event

Never had a problem at JOB's. Tables always in good shape and treated well even though I'm a out of towner. Don't be naive. If you think substances aren't at every pool room and bar you are fooling yourself.
