We, at The Bluebird Cafe, have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our venue effective March 13-31st. 

This also includes our Bluebird at Adventure Science Center show on March 19. We have been monitoring the news and recommendations from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and feel this is the most appropriate course of action to keep our songwriters, audience members, and staff both healthy and safe.

Due to our venue’s small size, we feel this is the only surefire way to do so. As songwriter Don Schlitz once wrote, “you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them.” Over the next two weeks, we will be evaluating the CDC’s information as well as updates from Nashville city health officials and hope to be able to reopen our doors next month.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. Please know that we would be open, enjoying wonderful songs and stories with all of you if we felt it was safe for everyone.
