The Station Inn is a live music venue in the heart of Nashville, TN, an area referred to as the Gulch. For more than 40 years, The Station Inn has brought great bluegrass, roots and Americana music to millions of fans across the globe. Many of the world’s most successful musicians have played at The Station Inn, including Bill Monroe, JT Gray, Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss and John Prine. The venue has been around for a long time, and plans to be around for many generations, with a goal to bring great music and great fun to Nashville and the rest of the world.
Yes, all minors are admitted to The Station Inn with an adult chaperone. The chaperone is responsible for good behavior. But kids will be kids. If your little tyke is making adorable noises that might not fit with the music being performed, we ask that you take them outside so that they can get it all out, then come right back in.
The bluegrass jam is one of those things that really needs to be experienced. It’s a classic picking circle (all musicians sit in the round and play together) with anyone who wants to observe sitting outside the circle. Bluegrass instruments only (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, dobro, bass, etc) are allowed at the jam. The bar is open and the atmosphere is about as relaxed as can be. There are no skill requirements and you may be picking with living legends. There’s no telling who may show up.
It’s free because it’s so much fun that we want anyone to come who feels like coming.
Of course! The bar opens with the door (two hours before show time) and serves pizza, garlic knots, and a variety of other snacks. We also serve beer (Yazoo is our local favorite), coffee, tea and soft drinks.
