The Ryman Auditorium

Located near our hotel, the historic Ryman Auditorium is one of Nashville’s must-see music venues.

A Legendary Stage
Built by Thomas G. Ryman as the Union Gospel Tabernacle, the Ryman Auditorium has housed a variety of epic events. In the 1920s, the Ryman became the anchor of Nashville’s cultural offerings. The venue was known as the Carnegie of the South, hosting sought-after traveling acts including Harry Houdini, Charlie Chaplin, and even president Theodore Roosevelt.

Ryman and Grand Ole Opry
Hosting the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman presented a stage where June Carter met Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley brought the house down. The future of the Ryman was uncertain when the Opry moved in the early 1970’s. Thankfully, Nashville saved the Ryman from demolition.

Ryman Today
Now, the Ryman is known as one of the most prestigious performance halls in the world. The venue’s unique acoustics draw artists from across the globe, adding a new chapter to its storied history.
