Robert's Western World, Nashville, Tennessee
Concierge.com's insider take:
There are a half-dozen honky-tonks on Lower Broadway, and a dip into any of them will offer up a better-than-average band (this is Music City, after all) and a lesson in Classic Country 101. But there's something about Robert's that makes it "the one" to hit—hell, even locals brave the bad parking and sweaty tourists limping around in their clean new boots to listen to house band Brazilbilly. Smaller acts play during the day to loyal lunch crowds (they serve a mean burger). At night, the tables in the front get pushed back to make room for dancing, which is a lot more fun after a $2 can or two of Pabst Blue Ribbon. Be sure to drop a buck in when they pass around the big glass pickle jar—bands play for tips.
Open daily 11 am to 3 am.
