Gastropub

“If you’re wanting a full 180 experience from the honky tonk experience, come here! It’s located in the revered Printer’s Alley, home to everything alternative to the Broadway scene. This is a legit pub, full of soccer games on the TVs and everything in between. ”

“Also on Printer's Alley right off of Broadway, Miss Kelli's is a smoke-free karaoke bar! It's a fun time whether you are a karaoke enthusiast or just want a good laugh at those who love karaoke, but truly have no future of making it big in Music City. :)”

Travel Agency
“Currently made up of roughly 5 "dive" and karaoke bars, the alley became the center of the city's nightlife and serviced the hotels, restaurants, and saloons fronting on Fourth Avenue, which was known as the Men's Quarter in the late nineteenth century. Ms Kellie's on the alley is my favorite late night thing to do in Nashville, with lively karaoke and dancing, and fun late night atmosphere. ”
