4. Insider’s Tip


Honky-tonk bars like Tootsie's Orchid Lounge (left) and Robert's Western World (right) draw weekend crowds.  

Raucous honky-tonk bars like Tootsie's Orchid Lounge and Robert’s Western World on lower Broadway draw crowds for their live music sets on Friday and Saturday nights. To dodge the snaking lines at the door, go around to the lesser-known back entrances in the alley bordering Ryman Auditorium. You’ll still find doormen checking I.D.s, but a lot less traffic.
