49. The End
City: Nashville, TN
Address: 2219 Elliston Pl.
Coolest Feature: It's dirty, so wonderfully dirty
Despite its small size, the End has two faces: it's part dive bar and part concert venue. While comparing it to CBGB is certainly a stretch, but in its three decades of existence, the indie-rock hut at Elliston Place has hosted everyone from small, local acts to big names like The White Stripes.
