About The Roof

In 2002 the Original Tin Roof opened near Nashville’s famed Music Row to give musicians a place to play and a place to hang when they weren’t on stage. The tasty food, fun, eclectic environment, community of Regulars and friendly Crew quickly established the Roof as the place to be for musicians and non-musicians alike. Over the years, our stages have hosted the famous, the should have been famous, and everyone in between.

Live music & entertainment

There's always something happening at the Roof! Weekend nights are legendary and feature live bands on stage playing all of your favorite songs while Nashville's best DJs spin dance tunes in our Green Room & Two Bits section. Two sides of entertainment for one amazing night! Weekends don't start on Friday & they don't end Saturday night on Demonbreun though, so come see us for our long running Thirsty Thursday featuring live bands & DJs and then finish up the weekend Sunday afternoon at the Roof for the best Sunday Funday in Nashville! 

Weeknights feature two of the best original music showcases in Music City.  Revival every Tuesday night hosted by Rob Snyder, co-writer of the #1 hit by Luke Combs "She Got the Best of Me".  Revival's tag line is Hank & Jesus are watching so you'll know it's going to be good, authentic country music!  Bus Call mixes up the genres and features full band showcases every Wednesday night.  Stay on the cutting edge of what today's taste makers are creating live on stage at Tin Roof.  Both showcases are free to attend.
