Exit/In is a music venue in Nashville, Tennessee. Exit/In is located on Elliston Place near Centennial Park and Vanderbilt University. It opened in 1971 under the management of Owsley Manier and Brugh Reynolds. As a small venue seating 200 or so, it developed its unique reputation in the 1970s because of the unusual things that occurred almost nightly. The club was expanded in the early 1980s to accommodate 500 patrons.Add Exit/In to your Nashville travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Nashville driving holiday tool.

We are here to see Kiefer Sutherland. The venue is small and cozy. Standing room only for the most part. There is a balcony with some chairs but the view is bad. Better just to stand on the main... more »
Awesome place to catch a show. Relaxed, friendly and caring staff. Great sound and great vibes abound. Did I mention legendary? So many cool bands have played here over the years. Just go if you can. You'll love it
Coolest concert venue I've ever been to. Get there early enough and you can snag the bar stools on the balcony and not even have to stand up for the whole show. Very authentic and historical vibe, with the names of famous acts that have played there. It's just shocking to think that you're standing in the same place where Neil Young, Tom Waits, Elliott Smith, and so, so many more stood and performed.
