DETAILS
Adding to the area's musical legacy is the fact that country music star Gretchen Wilson got her start while bartending, waitressing and occasionally singing at Bourbon Street Blues Bar. But anyone nostalgic for days gone by in Nashville entertainment is advised to check out what is one of the last remaining nightclubs and restaurants along downtown's neon-lighted Printers Alley. At one time, Printers Alley, so-named as the pre-WWII site of Nashville's newspapers, was home to a number of cabarets, nightclubs and supper clubs. Bourbon Street, recalling New Orleans' prime street for debauched amusement, has managed to survive by offering top-flight blues and R&B. Practically anyone who's anyone in blues has performed on stage, from Bobby "Blue" Bland to Walter "Wolfman" Washington. And Bourbon Street serves better-than-average bar food specializing in Cajun cooking. Full bar. Age-21-and-over admission since smoking is allowed. Serving dinner and late-night daily.
