Nashville’s famed Broadway is an American go-t0 for honky tonks. From Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge to Robert’s Western Wear, the strip is home to some of the most iconic country music bars in the world. But there’s a new trend on Broadway–many of the older hotspots are being replaced by new haunts and those haunts have some serious names on their marquees.
From Alan Jackson to Luke Bryan, more and more stars have been opening up their own restaurants and bars in downtown Nashville. From high-end menus to multiple stages and signature cocktails, these hip honky Tonks are becoming new destinations on an old favorite street. With so many new options–and more on the way–it can be hard to keep up! Here’s a definitive list (for now) of all of the stars’ bars taking over Nashville.
AJ’s Good Time Bar – Alan Jackson
Housed in the oldest building on Broadway, Alan Jackson’s “AJ’s Good Time Bar” is sure to be a “good time” for all involved! The venue features three floors and a rooftop bar with an amazing view of Nashville.

Acme Feed & Seed – Alan Jackson
Jackson has a hand in not one, but two spaces on Broadway. However, Acme Feed & Seed is quite a bit different than AJ’s Good Time Bar. Each floor features a slightly different vibe and combines entertainment space with restaurant and bar space. Visitors can also enjoy views from the rooftop bar not only of Broadway, but also of the Cumberland River and Nissan Stadium since Acme is situated at the end of Lower Broadway.

FGL House – Florida Georgia Line
Just off of Broadway, Florida Georgia Line has their own restaurant and bar aptly named “FGL House.” Their food mixes Southern cuisine with California flair, and the venue itself features a basement lounge, two floors for dining and the “Cruise” rooftop bar. Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are known to stop by, so you never know when you might see the FGL boys hanging out there!

Dierks Whiskey Row – Dierks Bentley
First started in his home state of Arizona, Dierks Bentley decided to bring his “Whiskey Row” bar to Nashville. Featuring food, drinks and entertainment all day long, you probably won’t be the only one getting “sideways.”

Redneck Riviera – John Rich
One of the coolest features about John Rich’s “Redneck Riviera” is the Heroes Bar inside. It’s a way for Rich and others to thank active military and veterans for their service. They, along with all first responders, can receive a 2-for-1 deal on all drinks at the Heroes Bar. Ever the host with the most, Rich lets fans know when he’s in residence by hanging a lighted sign out front.
