Even on Mondays, Nashville's rhythm never skips a beat. How could the “Music City” ever fall silent?
Yes, Nashville bars are open on Mondays. The city's music venues, including bars and honky tonks, operate from 10 am seven days a week and remain open until 2-3 AM. Broadway alone boasts live music across 32+ venues, and the best part is there's no cover charge.
Not only are the bars open, but almost everything is open! You'll be spoiled for choice!
In fact, enjoying Broadway on a Monday is a great way to hear live music and have a meal and drink without the crowds. Downtown Nashville is usually alive, with thousands of people flocking to the streets to enjoy the party atmosphere. Between Monday and Wednesday, it's less chaotic but no less fun. So come and enjoy your Monday in Nashville!

The Nashville Monday Bar Guide:
Some select and specific restaurants are not open on Mondays. The bars, however, don't close, and the music still flows into the streets at all hours of the day.
One notable Monday night option is The Optimist, a luxurious seafood spot in Germantown. The venue features indoor and outdoor seating, making it ideal for an after-work drink or a full-fledged dining experience. The location is also conveniently situated within the Hammer Mill development.
In addition to individual establishments, Nashville's happy hours and specials are available to entice you on Mondays.
Various venues offer discounts and promotions on food and drinks early in the evening and late into the night.
For example, 1 Kitchen Nashville hosts Golden Hour from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., featuring $5 select beers and $8 select light bites. Click here for our Monday night happy hour guide.
