Broadway Historic Entertainment District
The collection of music venues and watering holes here drowned the sorrows and launched the careers of many music stars. Bars like Tootsie's Orchid Lounge became a sort of "backstage" for up-and-coming performers like Willie Nelson and Patsy Cline, making the "37 steps" in the alley between Tootsie's and the Ryman famous. More favorites include Robert's Western World, The Stage, Legends Corner; the honky tonks in Printers Alley, just a few blocks away; and Station Inn in The Gulch. Hatch Show Print – Nestled along Broadway is one of the oldest working letterpress print shops in America. For 125 years, Hatch has printed concert posters for musicians ranging from country's original legends to popular contemporary artists.
