“a mecca of entertainment in America”
The Wildhorse Saloon is Nashville's #1 Dining and Entertainment destination and a mecca of entertainment in America. To capture the attention of Nashvillians and country music visitors, on June 1, 1994, the history of the World Famous Wildhorse Saloon began with country superstar Reba McEntire herding a stampede of live cattle through the streets of Music City, also known as Nashville, Tennessee. The cattle were herded down Second Avenue and past the front doors of the newly opened club. Since then, the Wildhorse has continued to capture the interest of visitors with its award-winning menu, unique attractions and one-of-a-kind capabilities. The Wildhorse Saloon turned a three-level historic warehouse into a 66,000 square foot live music and dance destination. The Wildhorse is simultaneously a restaurant, bar, concert site, dance venue and TV studio. Annually, more than 1.5 million music fans stampede to the Wildhorse to have a great meal, catch the hottest in live entertainment and learn the newest dance steps. Over a normal year the Wildhorse uses around 3000 gallons of BBQ sauce and about 2 million pickle slices in our famous fried pickle recipe. As for shirts, we have sold around 50,000, and we can't leave out bottles of beer... that was around 10 million, last count! And, we have been involved in over 4000 TV shows and tapings! We are the largest per capita restaurant in all of Tennessee and since we mentioned state facts...we also have the largest tv screen in Music City!
We had a GREAT time here!!! The drinks were delicious and inexpensive, the line dancing was so much fun, and the band (Holland Marie) was amazing. The energy was so high that I was even able to convince my boyfriend, Mr. I-Don't-Dance, to join in on a line dancing lesson. I truly wish I was a local so I could visit regularly.
You have to hit this place on a busy night, otherwise its a bit like your first date... a ton of looking around, not a lot of vibe and it takes a real effort to get into it. If you’re lucky and its packed, and if you can dodge the 60’s and 70’s folk (the older cougars)... you’re in for a big one!
The hall is enormous... just huge, and if you are with a group of friends, then you’ll have a cracking time... live music, plenty of dancing, and its real easy to grab a beer (there are never queues). The experience may be a bit commercialised and prices on the steep side, but there’s nowhere else to learn a little cowboy dancing and singing!
Standard Southern fare for food. Pool and such on the third floor, and line dancing "lessons" nightly. Cold beer and live music round out the experience. Huge space which is nice, since the nightlife in Nashville can be crowded.
