Great Bar. The Beer Sellar has a fun, laid-back atmosphere and a very large selection of beers. Great hang-out spot.
Loud, if you want to talk.
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!

Excellent (slightly) hidden pub downtown. 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.
GREAT ESCAPE. 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.
repeat repeatttt. 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.
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.
Musician posted before this post sucked.. 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.
Best bar in town!. The staff is very fun and intelligent, and the selection cannot be beat. I recommend trying the German brews.
Best Bar in Downtown Nashville.
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!
UNFRIENDLY TO MUSICIANS.
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.
