Dance with a Drag Queen at Play
Today, Closed Today
Celebrating somethin' special? Rally the troops and take in a drag show at Play.
It's no secret that Nashville is known for their honky tonks, but we'll let you in on a little secret if you'd rather ditch the two step to twerk. Play is one of the best club scenes around, and with live entertainment nearly every night at 11p and 1a, it's a real show stopper. The $20 weekend cover charge is totally worth what's waiting for you inside. (There's an ATM on site, but plan ahead to avoid the fee.) Order a drink from one of the shirtless bartenders and then sit back and enjoy the show! Whatever your sexuality, chances are you'll swoon over the lip-synching beauties on stage. Don't be surprised if they're prettier than you! Pro tip: they aim to please, so bring your dollar bills to tip your favorites.
As for ambiance, half of Play is dedicated to the drag queens. On that side, you'll find ample comfy seating and a fully-stocked bar. But if you're in the mood for Vegas vibes, head over to the dance floor. The DJ will be spinning tracks that will have everyone grinding along to the beat. Heads up, if PDA isn't your thing you may wanna shimmy on down the road, Jack!
