Where is the Best Singles Scene in Nashville, Tennessee?
My boyfriend and I frequent 3 Crow Bar at least once or twice a week especially when it’s two for one’s! The great thing about their special is that you don’t have to drink both beers in one sitting….They will give you a token to bring back at any time for your free drink! This is a beautiful thing, which basically means when you’re good on money save your tokens, and when you’re broke you can still go out and drink for free!!! We love it! The atmosphere is nice too because its not too trendy and if you live in East Nashville you will always see someone you know! The only downside to the bar is that half of the place (which is 15-20 tables) has ONE server….EVEN on 2 for 1 nights! And sometimes there is NO waitress and you have to go to the bar for all of your drinks. It’s quite frustrating, but we love the place enough to deal and be happy that we have 3 Crow Bar to hang out with our friends and have a drink.Pros + good food, good specials, great place to hang with friendsCon
I just went back and… hot DAYUM that place was jumpin!Ronda & Jonda were rockin’ the joint. Everybody… every age, gender, color, social status and preference… was having a fantastic time.I went back the next night for Karaoke and DJ Debra blew me away with her own soulful blues, while every singer who ponied up to the stage gave a really solid performance… you usually have to pay a lot more than $3 to see entertainment like this. So needless to say, the cover was VERY reasonable.The bar was WAY crowded, but the drinks were generous in both size and alcohol content. I had just two of their special cocktails, the “Gray Ghost,” and I was IMPAIRED. ‘Course, I didn’t drive. I sobered up with some very respectable hot wings from the kitchen, and danced it off!I love the Lipstick Lounge! You will too!Pros + Friendly staff, Stiff drinks, Great entertainmentCons – Tiny dance floor
I’m afraid I have to agree with some of the comment from other folks. This place is great your first couple of times but the luster quickly wears off. I’m willing to bet that the attitude that some of the staff has is because so much of the crowd is younger and inexperienced. I’m mean, c’mon. Fluctuating drink prices, they still don’t take cards and they don’t run tabs. Who does that anymore? Not to mention the power-drunk staff and management. They know that most of these folks will come back because there is nothing like it in town. The ATM in the lobby isn’t a convienience, it’s an eyesore. It’s something you would expect to see at some trashy laundrymat. I’ve had several folks tell me that the scene (regular patrons) rotates about every 8-10 months. With the entertainment (drag shows) I can see why. The featured perfomers are nice (brought in from the outside). The regulars have become complacent and lazy. The entire show is spent walking from one dollar to the next. That’s no
I think the Mercy Lounge is a great, laid back bar. It’s in the old Cannery building, which brings back great memories from 10-20 years ago when it was a hopping venue for some of the best bands around. The Lounge is very large and open, which accomodates smokers and non-smokers. They have pool tables, two bars, a deck, a stage and a few comfortable sofas to hang out on. The owners and staff are great and don’t have the attitude that blemishes so many bars in Nashville. My only suggestion is they replace some of the cheap diner tables/chairs with more sofas. Check it out…Pros + laid back, large, not smokey
