Jazz musicians in Nashville aren’t afforded the same opportunities as other music genres when it comes to playing live shows. However, there are a few places where you can find the ultimate live-jazz music experience, including the four spots featured below.
Not only does Sambuca Restaurant have a menu full of American food to choose from, but it also has live music nightly. Weekends usually feature cover bands and high-energy performers, but jazz musicians also make appearances. Enjoy a fruity cocktail and romantic dinner among the sounds of Nashville’s finest jazz groups.

It doesn’t open until spring 2017, but Rudy’s Jazz Room is set to be the go-to place in Nashville to hear jazz music. Its home will be in The Gulch, and it will serve New Orleans-inspired food in addition to hosting a nightly rotation of jazz bands. Successfully funded through a Kickstarter campaign, Rudy’s Jazz Room posts updates on their page as they become available.
