128 Second Ave N, Nashville, TN | Directions 3720136.162800 -86.775600
hmm.. – This place is huge 4 levels. Every level is different. Ages range from 15-50 here. Pretty much anything goes. This place draws in underage drinkers, thugs, nasty skanks, couples, & older party people with no life. If you are too drunk you get kicked out and put on 2nd avenue for a cop to "take care of you". It's very nasty, over crowded, & too many "gangsters".
Next......! – Anyone over 22 should avoid this place like the plague. Went on a Friday with some friends and it wasn't just crowded it was hotter than anything in there... Bunch of tough guys thinking their it, mixed with half as many underage girls trying to look older and acting like strippers... Very few people of drinking age in this club... It seemed more like a lame teen club than anything else. NEXT......!
Worst club....ever – This plays attracts the wrong crowd. Young people looking for fights. The bouncers are useless and scared of the customers...OMG, this place is so terrible its amazing.
HORRIBLE! – This is without a doubt the WORST club in Nashville! It's so overcrowded it's ridiculous! It used to be fun, but I don't know what happened. It's so packed you can't walk, and I don't think they have any kind of air circulation at all. You will be dripping in sweat without even stepping on the dance floor (which you can't get on anyway b/c it's always packed). I don't think anyone over 21 is there, it's like a teen club! The bouncers cannot control the crowd. There is always a fight, and most of the time the bouncers are the ones getting beat up! Besides all that, the people who work the door discriminate! I have seen them turn away black guys in slacks and let a white guy right behind him in with baggy jeans! I'm white, and it offends me so I can just imagine how it made them feel! Oh, and did I mention they charge $10 to get in?! They should be paying people $10 who can last all night! This club is horrible!
meh – Meh. Kinda lame unless you are under 21. Full of 19 year olds. The bar must not make much money at all.
YUCK! – Compared to most other cities most of the clubs in Nashville are pretty crappy. Graham is no exception. Know that in terms of the staff (whether they are good/bad, attractive/not attractive, etc) it changes greatly from year to year. Graham was my preferred choice of club in Nashville in 2004, it wasn't a great club but I could at least go and have a good time. The staff was skilled and attractive and the club goers were for the most part well dressed, behaved and attractive themselves. It has considerably gone downhill since then. I love that they have several different levels with different themes, but this place is in desperate need of a complete makeover!!!!!! It looks the same as it probably did in the 90s, but more run down! No dance club should have carpeting, especially here where there's a haze of smoke from all the cigarette and cigar smoke. The last time I went to Graham (sometime early 2007) the crowd was horrible. Way too many guys, in comparison to girls (not good for business) and the majority of girls were very trashy in behavior and dress. This type of scene always breeds fights and bad behavior. They have dance cages which are fine, but they have come to resemble stripper poles. Skimpy dressed girls dance in these cages showing their bras, doing handstands in miniskirts, etc and are surrounded by a crowed of drooling guys who, try to take pictures and sometimes try to slip them dollars!!!! Some raunchiness is always expected at a club but this place has become far too raunchy and dirty. As a woman you feel unsafe and as general club goer you may feel the need to bathe in rubbing alcohol to clean the nastiness off!
Oh and as always the Dj's have never been very good. They play generally top 40 songs but they are usually last month's top 40 which happen to be the same top 40 songs they play every weekend and some songs more than once in a night...it gets old fast.
*the absolute worst experience* – This place is litterally the WORST choice you could make to "party" "chill'' or "check out" when you get to the night life area of your vacation. The workers were not organized, not attractive physically and had bad hygeine. One of the workers asked me and a friend if we could fill out job applications (we're planning a move in july) while another asked if we wanted to dance on the bar. Thinking it was an okay place at the time, we jumped on the bar..proceeding to have an okay time. In that event, six security men came and told us that we had to leave. When asked why, they simply had no answer..except "no dancing on the bar"...needless to say...this place is a waste of time. everyone needs to learn the word class there. and the rule book should be studied before they tell customers what "is" and "isn't" accepted.
Will never go back – Granted, I'm not really into clubs, but for a while this was the only one in Nashville that I would go to, and I went fairly often. Two or three times a month, sometimes more. I often brought friends who were visiting from my hometown. It has a lot of variety with 5 different levels. Each level has its own attitude, so you're getting something new at each level. However, when I had a complaint, the manager was rude and customer service was obviouly low on his priority level. I complained because there was a $10 cover charge, but they had closed off at least 2 levels. I felt this was unfair, since I had expected to experience 5 levels, and my favorite was one of the ones that was closed. If I had known this, I probably wouldn't have come in, especially at $10. I didn't want to stick around, either. So, I asked the manager to refund my payment. He refused. I didn't understand this, since I had only been there a few minutes. If I had waited an hour before complaining, I wouldn't have expected restitution. I calmly tried to reason with him and explained my position, but it was like talking to a wall. I doubt he was even listening, much less considering what I had to say. Customer service is more important to me than anything, and when the manager refused to recognize the situation, I left and haven't returned since.
Best place to dance and mingle on friday nights especially for singles. – This is a good club. Very high energy and friendly people a great place to dance and shake your butt all night . This is a good party scene especially for singles and those who just want to mingle and have fun without worring about fights and arguments. The security is good and management is good they don't tolerate any non sense and stupidity. The people are great full of energy and sillyness. This club is not for extremely serious party poopers or people. Anyone who goes to this club will enjoy themselves especially on a Friday night and even on a Saturday night.
Out of control crowd – The crowd is out of contol and security and management seem to be letting anything go on the dancefloor. Used to be fun but lately just disgusting.
