Broadway is a famous street in downtown Nashville filled with live music, dining, and shopping. Lower Broadway, also known as Honky Tonk Highway, is where you’ll find the most iconic bars and entertainment.

You’ll find live music every day of the week from 10 AM to 3 AM, and there is never a cover charge. Here are a few of the bachelorette-friendly bars for your group to explore.

If you’re interested in visiting the oldest and most famous honky tonk bar in Nashville, you’ll want to head over to Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge. Many country music legends like Patsy Cline and Willie Nelson have performed here. There are multiple levels, each with a live band and a rooftop bar. Be sure to get a group picture outside of this historic purple bar!

Honky Tonk Central is a large three-story corner bar that offers live music, good food, and a great time. This bar features a different live band on all three levels and has balconies around the second and third floors. Consider renting your group a private room or private balcony and enjoy VIP status!

The Wild Horse Saloon is another excellent option to add to your Nashville bachelorette party activities. This three-story establishment offers mouthwatering southern food, excellent service, and a fantastic outing. The best part? They have dance instructors who will teach you how to line dance!

A mural and mimosa tour is an excellent Nashville bachelorette party activity! Your bride-to-be will love the endless mimosas, lively music, dancing, and countless photo opportunities at the Instagram-worthy murals. This tour of Nashville is guaranteed to be a blast!

If mimosas aren’t your cup of tea, don’t fret! You’re welcome to bring your own beverage (BYOB) if you’re of legal drinking age. Remember to leave the glass bottles behind, as they’re not allowed on these tours. Consider the Nashville Party Barge or Mint Julep Tours for a fun and entertaining mid-morning tour of Nashville.

#4 – Nashville Tractor Tour

The tour provides ice and coolers, or you can bring a small cooler of your own.

#10 – Nashville Male Entertainment

Are you looking for male entertainment for your Nashville bachelorette party? While many options exist, most require you to have your own event venue. If you’re visiting from out of town and staying in a hotel room that is too small, great options are still available.

If you want to add excitement to your Nashville bachelorette party, consider attending a performance by Music City Gents. They offer private and public shows and are popular among bridal parties. As a pro tip, booking your tickets in advance is best if you’re planning to attend a public performance, as they tend to sell out quickly.

Another option with its own stage is the Hunk-O-Mania Male Strip Club. Shows are only from Thursday through Sunday, so reserve your tickets. This male strip show offers stage performances, acrobatics, comedy, and more!

#11 – A Live Performance or Concert

For a unique Nashville country music experience, check out the Grand Ole Opry or Ryman Auditorium, renowned and historic concert venues with regularly scheduled shows. Alternatively, consider visiting the Bridgestone Arena or Nissan Stadium if you want a more traditional country music concert.

#12 – Group Line Dancing Lessons

Urban Cowboy Line Dancing is a popular choice, offering beginner-friendly group lessons. If you prefer to bring your own drinks, check out Turn Their Heads Line Dancing. And, for a lively and energetic experience, head to Stompin’ Grounds, a venue known for hosting a Nash Bash!
