Robert's Western World, Nashville

Robert's Western World, Nashville

When visiting the honky-tonks in downtown Nashville, Robert's Western World is a fun place for a quick look in. The club, located on Nashville's Lower Broadway, reinforces the many themes of country music while showcasing the different desires and expectations of the country fan and of the typical Nashville tourist. A special emphasis on "traditional" country is reinforced through the performing bands' selected catalog of hits from the "classic" era and the continued reminder to patrons that they are indeed listening to the sounds of "real" country in a "real" honky-tonk in a "real" music city.

The wall décor, featuring shelves of cowboy boots, neon beer signs, decorative markers of rural authenticity, and photos of country music's most iconic performers such as Ernest Tubb, Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Minnie Pearl, Marty Robbins, and Roy Acuff; the costuming of the club's performers, which combines the myths of country music industry with those of Western film; and countless references to WSM (The Legend), the Ryman, and the Grand Ole Opry (which is only 15 feet from the club's rear entrance), affirm to fans that authenticity is heard not only in the interpretation of country songs but also in the performers' image, the venue's location, and the city's placement and history.

Try going on a Thursday – it is certainly less crowded, and you'll get to see some of the regulars, which makes the experience one-of-a-kind.

Mon-Sat: 11am–3am; Sun: 10:30am-11:45am (Morning Gospel) / 12pm–3am
