Overview: Nashville is a great city. There are a lot of interesting venues to stage events here, but this is one of our favorites and one that you may not think of right away.
The Johnny Cash Museum is right in the heart of Nashville (3rd and Broadway). The main event space is directly next to the museum with a separate entrance for guests. Drinks and catering are available on site and the food for our event was fantastic.
Ballroom: The event space has a great look with exposed brick and wood floors and beams. There is a small stage area for intimate performances where we had Joanne Cash talk about Johnny Cash and perform a few songs. This is not a large venue, but for a cocktail event or small dinner it would work very well.
Museum and Store: The museum is very interesting and the right size for attendees to take a quick walk through during the event. A private door from the event area can lead into the museum.
There also is a museum store if attendees are interested, but it is separate from the event entrance so it is completely optional.
Con: The biggest problem we faced was the lack of bathrooms. The staff said this was something they were going to address but I don’t know if it has improved. This is something to take into consideration if you are looking at the venue.
There is also not a lot of space for storage so a pre-arranged coat rack is something to look into.
Bottom Line: A great venue that is not yet very well known. Attendees really enjoyed the experience and the staff was very easy to work with.
