Drinking and dancing at Robert’s Western World is a Nashville right of passage. This honky tonk on Lower Broadway has live music seven nights a week and serves fried bologna sandwiches and moon pies for whatever reason. You’re probably not going to spend a whole night here, although you certainly could, but any night out on Broadway is incomplete without a stop to dance to country and rockabilly at Robert’s. Regardless if that happens at 2pm or 2am, you won’t forget it.
