A dazzling symphony of musical experiences awaits you in Music City. You will be impressed with so many options including a behind the scenes tour and performance at Ryman Auditorium; a visit to the Grand Ole Opry with a full backstage tour and a meet and greet with one of the evening’s performers; a performance at the world-famous The Bluebird Cafe with a private table at this hard-to-get-into venue; VIP treatment with a private table at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge; and a stop to feel the beat at 3rd & Lindsley, an up-tempo music spot.

Become a Nashville insider with a private member-guided tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Your tour with a current HOF member will let you get up close and personal with the iconic instruments, lyrics and fashion that has shaped country music to date.

As one of the nation’s emerging epicenters of fine dining, Nashville boasts some of the most coveted and exclusive culinary experiences available. Your VIP options will include: Yolan, an authentic Italian gem curated by James Beard Award-winner and Michelin-starred chef Tony Mantuano; Giovanni Ristorante, one of the best Italian restaurants in Nashville; and The 404 Kitchen, where acclaimed chef Matt Bolus hand-selects the highest quality ingredients.
