A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock and Roll
Tequila Cowboy, formally called the Cadillac Ranch, features local and national country music acts every night of the week.
Not into country music? Its Karma Lounge is a top 40 dance club that has a state of the art sound system and light show. You can also shoot some pool or watch your favorite sports teams in the game room. Feeling brave? There is a mechanical bull located on the second floor…the only one on Broadway.
Under the same roof is Wanna B’s, a karaoke bar. If you want to be the star, pick from their catalogue of 250,000 songs. The full-service bar has a front stage, center stage, two HD flat screen televisions and a projection screen with video loop capability. There is also a private bar to get your sing on.
The menu consists mostly of sandwiches and burgers, with a few appetizers and salads also available. On Yelp, the pulled barbecue chicken nachos seem to be a crowd favorite, along with the sweet potato fries, Cajun grilled sandwich and steak sandwich.
The bar is just a short walk from the Music City Center and has been a frequented location by many ESX Crawlers.
So, while you’re at ESX if you’re looking for a place with more elbowroom, music variety and a mechanical bull challenge — this is your place.
