Explore Nashville: The Honky Tonk Highway

Rated on U.S. News and Travel’s Best Nightlife Scenes list with the likes of Miami Beach and Las Vegas, Nashville after dark is truly something to see. It’s a big city with many districts and colleges, but when you picture Nashville nightlife, it’s always the Honky Tonk Highway. Visiting the world renowned district is a can’t-miss opportunity when you attend the ASA World Summit Conference and Open Board Meeeting this fall.


Officially known as Lower Broadway, it’s four blocks packed with music venues, restaurants and shops. And, as they say, when you’re on the Honky Tonk Highway, there’s never a cover charge and the music is always live. The street’s neon signs brighten the vibe but don’t obscure the historical aura of the district as you wonder the crowded sidewalks. It’s a country music fan’s dream world, but it’s a great time for everyone.

“More and more live music venues are popping up — and not all of them cater to country-music fans,” the News and Travel review says. “You may have to look a little harder, but you can find whatever suits your music taste. And if you do love country music, you came to the right city.”

Legend’s Corner will be your first stop on the Highway, two blocks down 5th Avenue from the Music City Center. Selected as Nashville’s best country bar by Nashville City Search voters, it features great acts every night and thousands of records and pieces of memorabilia covering the walls. Keep your eyes peeled — celebrity sightings are common at Legend’s Corner and on all of Lower Broadway.

The new ASA World Summit Conference and Open Board Meeting, Oct. 6-7, 2017, offers a full slate of networking opportunities, education and entertainment, but the trip is also a great opportunity to take some time to explore an incredible city with attractions for any style. There’s so much to see in the city, even those who have been going since our first convention there haven’t seen it all. Better start planning now — we’ll see you in Nashville!
