While BBQ may have been the thing I was most looking forward to on our trip, line dancing at the world famous Wild Horse Saloon may have been J’s.
We weren’t planning on being in Nashville long. We did our trip to the Opry, checked into the hotel, relaxed a little bit, then headed downtown for dinner and dancing.
The Wildhorse Saloon is on 2nd Street in downtown Nashville. It’s an old warehouse that has been converted into a three story bar. The tree lined street that runs in front of it is sort of narrow, but there is street parking on either side. The first time we drove by, we missed it. The trees must have been covering the sign. As we were driving around the block, we found the back service entrance, made a note of which businesses were around it, then drove back around to 2nd Street to try again.
Once we spotted the building, we started looking for parking. I didn’t see any garages, but I got lucky and found street parking right across the street. The meters were off, so we didn’t have to pay to park in downtown Nashville.
