Exit/In, Nashville

4.0
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.

Several documentaries have been shot on the inside of Exit/In, and many artists, including Kellie Pickler, have used the space to shoot music videos.

The club is featured in the 1975 Robert Altman film, Nashville. The club was also featured in Steve Martin's Born Standing Up.

On the cover of The Police's Zenyatta Mondatta album, Sting can be seen in one of the small photos wearing an Exit/In t-shirt.

Nashville recording artist The Howboy Catts recorded a live album at the venue in July 2010, which was released in early 2011.

  • 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.
