ESX Nashville Reveals Club Crawl Locations

NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 01, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) –The annual ESX Crawl, where attendees visit a number of the host city’s local pubs and restaurants, will head to Nashville’s famous Lower Broadway for a night on the town on Wednesday, June 27 beginning at 7:30 pm. This year’s Crawl is sponsored by GoldLeaf Data Corporation.

“Down time, casual connection and plain old fun has always been a part of the ESX concept,” says John Knox, president of Knox Integrated Systems, vice president/president-elect of ESA and unofficial social chair of ESX.

“It sounds silly, but it’s so important to provide a way for people to connect on a personal level away from the booths and the product displays, away from the closed shirt collars and suit coats. The ESX Crawl creates the opportunity for those connections and creates a lot of fun memories in the process.”

Crawlers will head to four stops on Lower Broadway, home to some of the world’s most famous honky tonk bars, including Rippy’s Smokin’ Bar and Grill, Tootsie’s World Famous Orchid Lounge, The Stage on Broadway and Tequila Cowboy Bar & Grill.

each location features live music by local and national performers — and you never know when a country music star will be in the house.

Rippy’s Smokin’ Bar and Grill

Rippy’s offers a main dining area that hosts very talented musicians, an East Side area filled with flat screens for the sports lover, and an amazing open-air rooftop patio where one can people watch on lower Broadway or just kick back and relax in the sun.

Tootsie’s World Famous Orchid Lounge

The quintessential honky tonk bar, Tootsie’s features two stages of live music with special appearances by a number of famous country artists. Famous early customers were Kris Kristofferson, Faron Young, Willie Nelson, Tom T. Hall, Hank Cochran, Mel Tillis, Roger Miller, Webb Pierce, Waylon Jennings, Patsy Cline and many more.

The Stage on Broadway

The Stage on Broadway is a little bit Texas and a whole lotta Nashville. Live country music and never a cover charge, The Stage lets you boot scoot all night long on the big dance floor. Check out the huge mural on the wall and the original oil painting of The Highwaymen that hangs over the front door.

Tequila Cowboy Bar & Grill

Founded in Nashville, Tennessee in 2012, Tequila Cowboy is a casual restaurant with a focus on good food, fun drinks and great music. Their stage features performances by national acts and local professional groups alike.
