Loud, if you want to talk 8/6/2008

I love how this bar is 'hidden', keeps away all the tourists! Went on a Saturday- and was kinda disappointed of the crowd. It wasn't completly dead, but not crowded- but i just expected more. They have a Jukebox, which is a cool addition. Music is kind of loud if you're just sitting around and chatting, but it's not that bad. The beer is high. That's my only complaint. They make a KILER Singapore Sling, the best drink ever- i recommend everyone try it! I can see where it can very easily become a stand up bar, as there isn't really that much seating. Well- i guess it's sufficent, since there is a pool table in the middle of the floor. I loved it there, and i'm gonna go back here soon. Oh, the bar food is amazing!! They have these 'mini tacos' oh, they are great!! I LOVE THEM! (Located under h00ters on Church street) Pros: Great Enviornment, Fast service, Friendly staff Cons: Loud music, High Beer more

Excellent (slightly) hidden pub downtown 7/31/2008

Some folks may just stumble upon the Beer Sellar due to its location, but it's well worth the stumble. the atmosphere is great. It has an authentic pub feel. The beer selection is fantastic, with plenty on tap and tons more bottled. The sandwiches are also great, and the trivia on Sunday nights is a blast. The music IS from a jukebox, so if you're not willing to put a couple bucks in there to pick your songs, then you can't complain. This is one of my favorite bars in Nashville, and definitely a stand out in the downtown tourist district. Pros: great beer selection, great jukebox, nice feel to the place, good bar food Cons: music can be a little loud if you're just hanging out, but it's not that much of a distraction. more

GREAT ESCAPE 6/17/2008

The Beer Sellar is a great alternative to the typical bars in downtown Nashville. It fills the niche between the posh and country scenes. Its small, rustic and is literally underground with a familiar musty smell. The beer selection is a highlight with 50+ on tap with more exotic options from the bottle. The atmosphere is cozy, relaxing with cordial and likable bar tenders and servers. With little live music, its a nice place to hold a conversation so often I begin or end my nights there. The drink specials are complicated but intriguing. Not known for its food this little watering hole is a joy to dive into if you are seeking the simple pleasures, quality brews and good people. Pros: Beer selection, Cellar atmosphere, Uniqueness Cons: Food, Odd happy hours more

repeat repeatttt 4/25/2008

dont get me wrong, i love the beer selection. i love playing pool. i love playing foose ball and smoking cigarettes. but i also enjoying doing all these things while listening to good music. and by good i mean decent when im out since i cant actually choose what im listening to. well, the last two times ive been at the beer seller....the music has been absolutely terrible. considering i was drinking, while playing pool and was still able to notice how obnoxious the music was means something. i heard the same 3 doors down song three times in two hours. i also heard ashlee simpson (lame) (especially when played at a bar like the beer sellar) and the same pink floyd song at least twice (which is fine, when played...once). im just saying that something should be done about the music in the place. i expect to hear something good when i go to a bar like the beer seller and instead the music was worse than the stuff played on the radio. everything was on repeat. Pros: beer selection, pool tables Cons: no crowd, worst music selection ever, tool bag central more

Great Place 4/22/2008

Was in town for a conference the hotel clerk reccommended the beer sellar as a decent place to go for a very large selection of beers and not just another tourist bar. He was absolutely right. THe beer selection was vast. The locals were friendly, only to be out done by the staff. I dont remember the waitresses name (probably due to the great service and my beer never being empty) but she was tall and beautiful and took the time to indulge me by having my picture taken with her ( I know very touristy but she was beautiful). I will definetly go back the next time I am in Nashville. did I mention the cold beer and the beautiful waitress. more

Musician posted before this post sucked. 7/27/2007

To the musician, I was there, and you sucked. Seriously, if you want to be a real musician walk in there and truly represent YOURSELF. They do not need to announce you. Thanks for leaving before I shoved you over. Pros: Booze Cons: Accordion player more

Best bar in town! 6/13/2007

The staff is very fun and intelligent, and the selection cannot be beat. I recommend trying the German brews. more

Best Bar in Downtown Nashville 5/22/2007

I absolutely love this place. My wife and I visit annually during CMA Music Fest (due to the birth of our child we won't make it in '07, but we'll be back!) and spend many hours here during our visit. Phenomenal beer selection, completely unpretentious atmosphere, fantastic jukebox and a great staff make this place a home run. It's also a great place to escape all the tourists packed into the honky-tonks on Broadway. You'll meet the coolest people at the Sellar...I wish they could pack it up and move it to NYC! Pros: Location, staff, beer selection Cons: None whatsoever more


I was hired by the manager of the Beer Sellar to play bagpipe music for St. Patricks Day. I was told to come and they would have a place for me to play and I was to play for 1 hour, between 10-11 pm. The trip there was very difficult and they were hard to find. I was immediately met by several very rude customers who promptly stole my tip box, which was ok, because the manager did not have an official place set up for me to play, and did not announce my arrival in any form or fashion. I asked for a place to tune and was told that I would have to stand in the kitchen, which was impossible. I was shoved and cursed at, and assaulted by several customers who threw small sharp objects at me, hitting me in the head. I attempted to play, but within 10 minutes, the stereo was turned up so loud that I could not be heard. I asked the duty manager what he wanted me to do, to which he responded, "I don't have time for this, just go home" I asked for my payment, which was refused, even though I had fulfilled my contract. The excuse was that I needed an invoice, which I have NEVER had to have anywhere, and which was NEVER mentioned by the management beforehand. I attempted to explain to the gentleman that I was in need of full payment immediately to which he responded, " I don't have time to mess with you right now, you will have to wait 2 days before you will be able to even discuss payment with someone who might possibly be able to pay you. I was treated in a very unprofessional and rude fashion. Warning to the wise amongst musicians, be wary of who you accept gigs from, and always make sure payment is forthcoming. Addendum: On 3-18-2007, the manager did finally pay me for my time and added an extra amount for my trouble, and offered an apology. While this does not completely excuse the actions of the night manager and the situation of the night before, I am satisfied that the most of what happened was a misunderstanding. I will work for them again. Pros: none Cons: all more

Best place on 2nd ave. 2/21/2007

This is the place our crew usually camps out on second Ave. I am not interested in trying new beers, so I could are less about how many beers they have on tap. I like it because it is the only place on second avenue that is not a tourist trap. On a weekend night, it is usually crowded and the service is slow, but the people that work there are really cool, so it makes up for it. Also beware, there is not much sitting room. If you decide to go downtown bar hopping, this is a great place to start! more

Devoted Patron 8/24/2005

I've been coming to the Sellar since I moved to Nashville four years ago. The staff is an amazing group of people and always make me feel welcome. There are the hard core regulars, like myself, but then you mix in the tourists and a few of the college crowd and you have a great night. Yeah some ppl have a problem with parking, but hey it's downtown what do you expect, even it out by drinking 2-for1. Pros: great bar staff, 2-for-1 more

Try it 7/8/2004

If you don't mind crowds and smoke and lemming-like masses of twenty-somethings you will like this bar. This bar is one of those places that you will probably like at some time during the week - even if you don't like everything about it all the time. It is a MUST for including on any Pub Crawl. (In fact, 2nd Avenue is all down hill from here - literally - so it is a good place to start. It needs to be expanded. It is about one fifth the size of the Beer Seller on the river in Cincinnati. (yes, there are OTHERS) That makes it almost impossible to get service on crowded nights. But hey, the staff is friendly, they just don't have a very good system for coping with crowds. Pros: twenty-somethings, reasonable prices, friendly staff Cons: , smoke, hard to get service more

Good stuff 3/14/2004

This was by far the most enjoyable place I've been to in Nashville. The staff and crowd were great and I can't begin to say how good the selection is. Next time I'm in Nashville this is the place I'll be. Pros: Selection, Staff, Atmosphere more

Wheres the Beer??? 3/11/2004

I went to the Sellar several times over the past couple years. I am from New England and am familiar with almost every beer on their menu. EVERY TIME I have been I had to order several different beers until I got to on they have in stock. Certain beers I have tried every time I went to get and they never have it. Seems to me that they don't have nearly as many beers in the fridge as are on the menu. If your looking for a Sam Adams or Fosters your in luck. If you want a Red Hook, Hoegarden or a Strawberry Blonde you may be out of luck. Pros: Fun Crowd more

Good place for heavy drinking 3/7/2004

A nice alternative to all the traps along 2nd Ave. Tons of beers at a decent price, cool bartenders and a fun crowd add up to equal a place to easily do a lot of drinking. more

Great Selection! 5/29/2003

Given the location your only parking options are going to be metered or in a nearby pay lot. You will understand the name as soon as you find the place. On a Sunday afternoon we were pretty much the only people there. The bar is not huge but there is a pool table, some golf/racing video games and dart boards to help you kill the time. There are also a few TVs to watch. The motto of Beer Sellar is "50 taps, 150 bottles, and 1 bitchin' jukebox". The array of beer options is impressive. You can find the usual macros, but also some more unique draughts like Arrogant Bastard, Young's Double Chocolate, Shiner Bock, Spanish Peaks, etc. The bottled selections are pretty much the same as you kind find at other well-stocked bars. Pros: Beer selection Cons: Parking more

Tall Paul Rules!!! 3/11/2003

I don't say this much, but Tall Paul rocks! He plays pretty much anything rock, old and new. Catch em almost every thursday night at the beer seller. A favorite of mine when in town. more

Oatmeal Stout rocks 1/11/2003

I love this place. The best beer selection of any bar on 2nd Ave. Pros: Juke Box, good DARK beer, not so touristy more

Not "Bar" Sellar 8/7/2002

You can't beat 2 for 1 drinks twice a week! This favorite of mine is a great place to go after Dancin' in the District or just to go sing Ryan Adams w/ the jukebox. 2 for 1 nights are Sunday and Thursday, after 9pm. Don't enter if you're allergic to smoke though; the place can get pretty smoky when it's crowded, which is often. And it's "Beer Sellar." One of my out-of-town friends mistakenly told some guys to meet us at "Bar Sellar," much to her dismay. Pros: 2 for 1, Location, Casual Atmosphere Cons: Smoky, Limited seating more

  • In Short
    Located in the basement of Hooters, this underground watering hole packs in locals ranging from after-work suits to the college crowd. The impressive beer selection includes 50 drafts and 150 bottled beers, including popular suds from Belgium and Germany. Cigars are also available and it can get smoky. If you're hungry, load up on mini corn dogs, Cajun popcorn chicken and fried macaroni while listening to the bar's jukebox.
