TIPS are always appreciated.
Comfortable shoes, a camera for pictures, I.D. (bars will card). International guests should bring a passport because some bars don’t accept an international DL for proof of age. We ask that you eat before the pub crawl, especially if you are in a general group. You will be getting some food samples on the tour but will not be a full course meal. We are at each bar a short time, so waiting for food may hold up the group.
Never, just a party spirit. Even though this is a pub crawl, the main emphasis is delivering a great time and sending you away with a little knowledge of Nashville’s colorful past. We just do it in a relaxing setting. Although you do need to be over 21.
